Whenever I see a new Halfbrick Studios game appear on the App Store, I get positively giddy. Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride are some of my favorites mobile games ever, so I expected big things from their newest offering, Colossatron: Massive World Threat.
I love freebies as much as the next person, but many free to play games are encumbered with advertisements and in-app purchases. Band Star attempts to make beautiful music in a freemium universe, ushering a melody which we might actually want to hear.
In a world of gritty games where paranoia, blood, and violence rule the day, it is nice to know that there are still some developers holding down the fort of adorable games. These little tastes of cute are a welcome respite from the usual cynical offering and help round out a gamer’s palette. Adorable games are like a sorbet between courses of Call of Duty and Bioshock Infinite. Purveyors of the cute on the iOS, Halfbrick Studios, have a new offering meant to melt your heart and exercise your fingers. It’s a little game called Fish Out Of Water and it is all about fish flinging. But, does it stand up to their other phenomenal offerings? Does Halfbrick have another hit on their hands, or has the fish been out of the water too long and is starting to stink?
It should come as no surprise that Halfbrick's Fruit Ninja is one of our favorite games. After all, we are Arcade Sushi. So in a way, we are kind of obligated to like this game. It also doesn't hurt that it's legit awesome. This is some of the most fun you can have on iOS! The HD version of the game for iPad makes the game even better and this is a rare chance to get it for free. That's why it's our Free App of the Day!
