This has been a fantastic week for paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free, and we’re finishing things on a high note. Yesterday’s post had nine great paid iOS apps on sale — some of them are still free if you hurry — and today we have 10 more for you.

DON’T MISS: How Have You Survived This Long Without These 10 Brilliant Lifehacks?

These are paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their 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, you will be charged.

Orbitum is a hypnotic rhythm-based reflex game of light and darkness.

“It’s surprisingly difficult to leave alone – very hypnotic.” – Chris Priestman, Pocket Gamer

“A stylishly stripped-back and curiously serene arcade experience that has you running on a particularly hazardous cosmic treadmill.” – Jon Mundy, Pocket Gamer

“It’s the perfect little game to pick up and play when you have a spare moment.” – Christine Chan, AppAdvice

The rules are simple: switch the orbits, survive against all odds and keep calm. A tap is all it takes to get through. But you’ll discover less is more when your dexterity starts to be put to the test. Starting off fairly simple and gradually building up into something quite fiendish, the game will keep your grey matter ticking over in unison with the stimulating techno sounds. Appearing out of nowhere and vanishing in darkness, the round-dancing shapes will make your head swim, hands sweat and teeth clench. But as you get the rhythm you will see that there’s nothing more satisfying than the feeling of genuine achievement after you’ve nailed another hellish level.

Recommended hardware:
iPhone 4 and higher, iPod touch 5th gen, iPad mini, iPad 2 or higher. For the best possible Orbitum experience, use these recommended devices.
