We’ve got a triad of free games to start the week off right on today’s Download Discounts. Time Geeks is a high-quality game in which you’ll search for hidden objects, Candy Rush will have you racing the clock to fill boxes with candy to earn money, and I Dig It requires some strategic planning to dig into the earth and gather fossils to sell and earn upgrades for your drilling machine. All three won’t cost you a dime, so start some downloads and get playing.

Time Geeks: Find All (iPhone, iPad) Free (was $1.99)

Adventure through time in an 8-bit world in Time Geeks: Find All, a game in which your goal is to find objects that don’t belong in each time scene before a timer runs out. It’s a lot like Where’s Waldo?, except you’re looking for lots of objects and they very rarely involve red and white stripes. Each scene is filled with items that don’t belong, and you’ll look for each in turn and tap them to complete each requirement — the faster you do so, the better.

Time Geeks includes seven different game modes and more than 150 search challenges to complete. It also carries support for OpenFeint and Game Center, supplying you with achievements and leaderboards to show off your finding skills.

Candy Rush (iPhone, IPad) Free (was $0.99)

In conjunction with OpenFeint, developer Appy has made Candy Rush free to support Japan, recommending players dedicate their buck and a little more to relief efforts for the country. That’s a pretty great cause, and your reward is Candy Rush for free, a fun time management-type game in which you’ll move candies from conveyor belts to their boxes and quickly shove them out the door to earn cash.

The longer you play Candy Rush, the more candies will become available to you, so you’ll need to create boxes that earn you the most money while still being mindful of how much time you have left. You get more than 60 levels of candy-slinging action in Candy Rush, all for free.

I Dig It (iPhone, iPad) Free (was $0.99)

There’s stuff to be found underground and money to be made, which is where you come in when you start up I Dig It. In the game, you pilot a digging machine that’s basically a tank with a giant drill bit on the end. As you delve into the earth in search of valuables, you’ll have to be careful to keep track of your various supplies — like the amount of cargo you can hold, how much fuel you have left, and how much of a beating your digging tank is taking. Once you’re loaded up, you can carefully return to the surface to unload your cargo and purchase upgrades for your vehicle.

The clock is ticking in I Dig It’s campaign mode, in which your digging machine helps you pay the mortgage on your family’s farm, but you only have so long to earn enough money or face foreclosure. The game also includes eight different minigames and Game Center support.
