Associate This - Get it now for FREE

Just wanted to let you all know that you can now get Associate This for free. Associate This is a word association game, a game where you have to guess which words, or phrases, are related to the other words, already visible in the game. A couple of screenshots are attached, hopefully you could get an idea what the game is about from those.

If you are interested, you can now get this game for FREE from the App Store, if you do try it out I would really appreciate it if you could let me know what you think of it!

This is by the same person as Mercury Mind and they look identical in screenshots except for the colors and the prices of the full versions. Even same awards. Hard to tell release dates since the updates might be those dates but they were at least even released at the same time! Fun concept just not sure why there are two by same person.

Edit: Figured out they were sequels. Never mind...

If you like the core concept, this game is really good. There are some stumpers and some that are obvious, but I like the way it makes you think. The developer adds new levels, every so often, too.

Yeah, try the lite. If you like that, the full is just more levels, I believe. Each level is themed, which I forgot to mention. Once you've completed a level, there's no real reason to replay it, which is a bit of a downside. My wife and I play it all the time.

From what I can tell, yes. I brought that very question, and I believe that was the dev's response.

There are two different paid versions out there, Mercury Mind and iAssociate. Besides those there are then 2 different free versions to both games, due to branding changes.

Of these versions, Mercury Mind is the first game released and iAssociate is it's sequel, meaning that if you wish to buy only one of these then go for iAssociate.

For those of you who are interested, I've just released a new level for this game, also available for free, you can find it here:

http://www.itunes.com/apps/associatethismovies

The level is Movie themed(meaning movies, actors, directors, etc), starting off with certain movies that have aliens, in one form or another, in them, and expanding from there to include both some older as well as some newer, even unreleased, movies.
