This is as big of a collection of free apps as we’ve found in weeks, and there are some quality download here as well. If you’re up for a quick gaming session, need to edit some photos, or want to put your top contacts into a convenient widget, we’ve got the perfect solutions for you below, along with links to download them.

This post covers paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. BGR is not affiliated with any app developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free at the time this post was written. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “get,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app anyway, you will be charged by Apple. Some apps may have additional features that require in-app purchases. Subscribe to our RSS feed or use that feed to create an email alert so you’ll be notified as soon as these posts are published and avoid missing any sales.

Big Truck – Mine Express Racing

Normally $1.99.

Big Truck is a simple, but very fun to play game. You just have to drive a truck across rough terrain and make sure that your goods get to the destination safely. You will get a precise number of goods you carry and a precise number of goods that is required. The more you bring, the more score and coins you get.

This game is all about being careful. At the beginning of each round, a precise number of goods will be dropped into your container. You have to touch the right of the screen for accelerating, the left of the screen for slowing down and tilt the device for balancing the truck. On the top side of the screen, you will find a timer and the goods count in your container and level required. You have to find the perfect balance between reaching the end of the level rapidly and doing so without dropping too many goods. The only way you can lose is if you don’t transport enough goods or if you manage to turn the truck upside down. In this case, you will have to retry.

Game instruction:

– Drive by pressing on the right or left of the screen.

– Tilt the device to control the truck carefully not to drop too much.

– Also support joystick control mode.

– Get more trucks, wheels and vip cards in garage.

– Get more coins in garage.

SOS defense

Normally $0.99.

When you thought that you would no longer see games with original mechanics… we are proud to announce that we have created the first PHYSICAL tower defense game! Will it be a new genre? :)

In this innovative concept, the mechanics of the best tower defense games are mixed with the dynamics of classic physics-based games, which in addition to giving the game a unique depth, also makes it unpredictable and fun!

In no other game of this type does the background play as important a role as it does here, as the impact of gravity and physical force on the behavior of enemies and your defenses will be crucial. You will be surprised to at times to be hallucinating with the advance of the enemies and forgetting that you must stop them!

Both fans of strategy and those seeking action will be assured to have fun because it is not enough to place your towers and get comfortable, your intervention must be constant!

In SOS defense you will have:

– Physics and gravity acting on the invading enemy, but also on your towers and powers!

– 3 game modes, for a total of 45 levels and more to come!

– Challenges that you can only overcome when your skills and strategy are at their maximum.

– Endless modes, in which your defenses must stop avalanches of enemies.

– 2 Special levels, which will force you to change your game and will put you to the test.

– 6 types of unique towers and improvements to customize your strategy.

– More than 20 enemies with different characteristics, including bosses that will make it very difficult for you.

– Powerful special powers, under your control.

– With 45 achievements and a leaderboard to see who is the best, you will stay motivated.

– Become an expert, using the encyclopedia with information about enemies, towers and special powers.

– You get the full game, without ads, without in-app purchases or paywalls :)

– A unique aesthetic… put on your headphones and immerse yourself in the SOS defense world!

We’ve worked with a lot of passion to create an original game, but also one that is fun and engaging!

Thanks to your support, we will be able to continue advancing, since we have many ideas planned for future updates.

Have fun! :)
