"Over the past three years we've given everything we have to make our games the best, and were rewarded a million times over with love and support from our fans. Now it's time to give something back, kick some ass and start 2013 with more momentum than ever. Have a blast playing Halfbrick's finest!"
Halfbrick is most well known for their game Fruit Ninja which launched in 2010 and has since accumulated over 300 million downloads across all platforms.

Same here. I actually go through a process of elimination now, and don't go around just downloading everything and anything anymore. Only console quality games are allowed to stay on my devices.

I never liked it that Fruit Ninja and Fruit Ninja HD were separate apps and separate purchases, but this more than makes up for it. Thanks Halfbrick!

uh...how dare they?

Shockingly they may wish to cover their Win 8 development costs before giving it away for free.

The article mentioned that "everything is free" for today - however, it is not.

Given that it was posted on a site for iOS games, it's pretty obvious that it means they are free for iOS.

Been playing this on Kinect and almost bought this yesterday but decided to wait until after Christmas as I'm expecting some iTunes cards. Now I'm glad I waited!

I have no interest in any of these games. However, I have a rule about never passing up an opportunity of getting something free that won't be forever. I can just not install it on any of my devices, easy enough, and maybe someday I'll want to play one of them.

Great apps. Worth downloading if you're a fan of pick up and play gameplay.

Talking

Just grabbed everything Halfbrick made from the App Store.
Even though some probably would suck, I can erase them anytime, and I can't get them free any day.

Yay! I got it! I also got it for free on Windows 8 because I got it back when it was free for Windows 8 Release Preview and the purchase carried over to Windows 8 Pro.

Thanks for the heads up MR!

I got my daughter an iPad for Christmas & free apps for it is always a good find.
