Grab a couple of free games in today’s Download Discounts, including a puzzler with more than 1,000 levels and a side-scrolling running game that never ends. Keep reading past those to find a to-do list app that will help you organize your time without pressuring you.

U Connect (iPhone, iPad) Free (was $0.99)

Quick: snag this addictive puzzler while it’s free. It includes more than 1,000 levels — it’ll keep you busy and help kill time, that’s for sure.

U Connect has a pretty simple premise: the screen has several points marked on it, and you need to draw connections between them with your finger. The idea is to connect every point to every other point, but you only have a limited number of connections to do so. It takes some intense logical thinking to solve some of the puzzles, and there’s no shortage of challenge to draw players in.

Global Runner (iPhone) Free (was $0.99)

Here’s a side-scrolling running game in which your character continually runs forward. Obstacles crop up in the way, requiring you to use timing and planning to help the character avoid them by jumping. Your only control is to tap the screen to activate a jump, but the simple gameplay makes this one pretty addictive — and it’s free.

The game features infinite play, so every time you try you have the opportunity to best your own score. It also includes doodle-style graphics and OpenFeint connectivity, giving you the chance to see how you stack up against other players around the world and earn achievements.

Put Things Off (iPhone) $0.99 (was $2.99)

This super-simple to-do list app is built to take the pressure off you even as it helps you organize your day. Put Things Off is less about making sure you get everything done in a day, and more about remembering all the things you have to do and prioritizing them to maximize your time management.

Put Things Off only has a few buttons — one for adding tasks, one for knocking tasks out of the way to put off for later, and one to tick-off completed tasks. You can mark tasks by date and time to keep them organized, and stack similar tasks so you can get them all done at once, but there’s no pressure to do things unless you have the time.
