A Long Way Home Free has been approved for the iPad and is available now in the app store. This free version allows you to play the first 10 levels of the game and if you like it, allows you unlock the remaining 90 for $.99.

A Long Way Home originally came out for the iPad last summer, and was met with pret good reviews, TouchArcade even reviewed it: (http://toucharcade.com/2011/06/20/a-...r-ipad-review/)

eariler this year I ported it to the iPhone, Google Play, Kindle Fire and the Nook, but I'm proud to finally have a free version so people can get their feet wet before buying it. I'm confident that if you like this style game, you'll really like A Long Way Home.
