How about some free apps to celebrate Tuesday? Leading today’s Download Discounts are a couple of casual, simple-yet-difficult games: Evil Bricks, a fun and fast take on the match-three genre, and Supastar, a level-based vertical climbing title not unlike Doodle Jump.

Evil Bricks (iPhone, iPad) Free (was $0.99)

Grab this solid match-three game if you’re looking for a new take on an old genre, which is what you get out of Evil Bricks. You’ll face a screen filled with bricks in rows of varying colors: using touch controls, you can slide the rows the rows to line up matching bricks to clear them. The more bricks you can clear out, the higher your score.

Evil Bricks is divided into multiple levels that require you to complete certain objectives, like clearing lots of bricks over time. You’ll also contend with evil bricks, which can only be dealt with by matching them to a bomb brick. If you’ve gotten bored with the match-three genre, check out Evil Bricks — it’s a new twist on an old play style.

Supastar (iPhone, iPad) Free (was $0.99)

Get Supastar while it’s free, and get a new take on the vertical jumping genre that games such as Doodle Jump have made popular with lots of iPhone and iPad owners. Supastar isn’t far from the tried-and-true formula — you’ll just tilt your device to move your bouncing spaceman from platform to platform, trying to get as high in the air as possible.
