Alien Swarm is FREE! (4.99 > FREE)




Given the recent notice of Galaga/Galaxian iOS games with the Namco 30th Anniversary release, this is a particularly nice freebie pickup for those who don't have it or haven't jumped on the new Namco/Bandai offering but love vertical shooting retro goodness. Just different enough to be its own game, but close enough to the originals that it'll hit that arcade sweet spot for anyone who needs a fix. Rated highly, and richly deserves it.

Couldn't agree more, Kitty. I grabbed this last time but had the lite version on my phone for over a year before that. Highly recommended!

Great game, I downloaded it a few hours ago after seeing that it had become free. I love how it's so similar to Galaga. ^_^
