Free and Fun

Famed iPhone app developer Tapulous has a new Tap Tap Radiation game designed specifically for the iPad. Tapulous CEO Bart Decrem recently explained to Appolicious that “the experience is now moving into the living room” and games moving forward will have “more people at the same time on the same device.” Expect more Tapulous titles  – with a price-tag – developed with this new contextual reality in mind in the weeks and months ahead. 

lite version of Labyrinth 2 HD is also available for no price on the iPad, although the real thing is a bargain at $7.99We Rule for iPad and other titles by acclaimed developer ngmoco can also be downloaded for free. However, like most “freemium” games developed by ngmoco and others, you’ll be motivated to pay along the way if you want to get very far. Still a good deal any way you slice it.
