Grab three free apps from our Download Discounts list today. We’ve got Hyper Tunnels 3D, a game that uses your accelerometer to pilot a spacecraft through a tight tube filled with hazards. FreeSong lets you create your own music by mixing different tones with ambient background noise. Finally, Super Fly will challenge you to help a fly survive an onslaught of enemies with only a two-by-four for your defense. Read up on all of them, then go get your downloads.

Hyper Tunnels 3D (iPhone) Free (was $0.99)

Navigate a space ship through a tight tube filled with moving traps in Hyper Tunnels 3D, which kind of has the feel of the final space battle scenes from The Return of the Jedi. You control your ship by tilting your iPhone to navigate the round tube, dodging walls and closing doors by going around them, boosting through them, or braking in front of them.

You’ll be able to choose from six different ships to tackle the nine different tunnels spread over three difficulty modes. You can also start a quick-play game at any time that randomly generates a tunnel for you to traverse, so you can always keep the game fresh.

FreeSong for iPhone (iPhone) Free (was $0.99)

Create a song using 12 different sound clips and eight other tones in FreeSong, an app that turns your iPhone into an ambient sound musical instrument. It consists of two screens: one, in which you tap pictures of different tones to play single tones, and another in which you can set background sounds to play behind the music you create.

FreeSong allows you to play songs on the fly and determine background sounds using 12 different sliders. You can put everything you do on a loop, as well, which plays your creation over and over again. Once you’re done, you can clear your loop and start all over, or just let sounds play to act as background music, white noise, or whatever.

Super Fly (iPhone) Free (was $0.99)

You are a green fly under attack by all manner of enemies, like pink bats and red mosquitoes. Your only recourse is to fly fast and to hammer away at the enemies with whatever blunt object you have on-hand — starting with a board with a nail in it, but later upgrading more and more to have better and better tools.

As you fly around and fight off monsters, you’ll gather power-ups that can turn you into a Super Fly, doubling your size and giving you huge muscles with which to pound your oppressors. You’ll also gather coins from the air and from your vanquished foes, which you’ll use to purchase more and more upgrades to take on tougher and tougher enemies. But ultimately, your goal is always survival.
