    I had to uninstall all my mobile games, just too much wasted time.

    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! :D

    I got Jetpack Joyride free with last years 12 days of christmas app, it's an ok game but gets repetitive as hell after about 5 minutes. The same applies to Fruit Ninja...I really dont get how people can spend hours playing it.

    I certainly would never pay for any of their games if Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride are anything to go by.

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

    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.

    uh...how dare they? :rolleyes:

    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!

    All their games except for Fruit Ninja are so formulaic. *yawn*

    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.

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

    Definitely downloading these. You never know when you'll just have HOURS of time to waste.

    On a side note, it's nice to see that I don't have a "download everything I see for free" problem.

    Is that a joke? You just downloaded all of them and then said you don't have a problem?

    I, for one, have Jetpack Joyride (got it from liking their Facebook page a year ago,) and I think I'll be okay if I never get another Halfbrick game again. I'm not saying I don't like Jetpack Joyride so much as I really don't need more casual games on my iPhone. I'm hoping that we start getting some games with actual depth AND polish at once at some point. I have Aralon and while it seems pretty good depth wise, it could use a lot more polish...

    Got them all, thanks MR for the heads up. I hope everyone will adopt the 24hr policy this year! =)
