-=- Smiles Zen for FREE weekend, Smiles bundle $1.99 SALE this weekend -=-

I imagine there's going to be a flood of these, but here I am anyways.

Today (October 30th) is the 1 year anniversary of the release of Smiles. So to celebrate, I'm doing a few things.

First off, this weekend I'm giving Smiles Zen away for FREE. Smiles Zen is the patience game half of the game bundle Smiles.

Smiles Zen - FREE this weekend: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=297637863

Next, if you liked Smiles Zen, you can grab the full bundle Smiles for a special sale price of $1.99 (and equivalent currencies elsewhere). That includes both games Smiles Zen and Smiles Drop in one.

What is the difference between Smiles Zen-solitaire, Smiles, and free smiles 2 in 1 ?

"Free Smiles" is the lite version. It has 1 playable Zen puzzle, and the Drop mode limits you to 200 matches.

"Smiles Zen" is the full version of Zen. 4 difficulty levels, generated puzzles, high scores, achievements, 3 tile themes (weather, vegetables, blocks).

"Smiles Drop" is the full version of Drop. Drop, Drop+, and Avalanche game modes. No limits on number of matches. 10 difficulty levels between the 3 game modes. High scores, Achievements, 3 tile themes (weather, vegetables, blocks).

"Smiles" includes everything in both Smiles Zen and Smiles Drop.


My apologies for the confusingly long App Store names. As soon as the latest update goes through, the names should be fixed.

Thanks for sharing that. I was busy in San Fransisco when I put the sale on, so I didn't have the time to post this myself.

If anyone is on the fence, don't be. Coming from a Match3 aholic I can assure you that these rank among the best and you come back over and over to them. Excellent graphics, gameplay and support.

+1

I love the solitaire mechanic in the game, and the level of customization it has. Those neon tiles are pure eye candy.
