    Sister site TouchArcade.com is offering a new promotion called "Free Play" in which they work with developers to offer highly rated games for free. The first offering is a role-playing game called Aralon.
    Aralon first came out in 2010 and received a 5 star review at the time. Aralon was originally priced at $6.99 and has seen price fluctuations since its release, but has never been free before. [Direct Link]

    Might be worth a try...unless it's a trap: have to "buy" the good stuff otherwise you'll never be able to really enjoy the game.

    nah, not a trap

    this one does have iap, but seems more of a "cheat" than actually needed to enjoy the game as intended.

    The second ability's icon in that screenshot is a mirror imaged version of WoW's Slice and Dice. They're identical lol. www.wowhead.com/spell=5171/slice-and-dice Not that it matters (or maybe it does legally), it just caught my eye and thought it was funny.

    Cool, promos like this one and Apple's Free App of the Week are good, in my personal opinion.

    Also, should it be "pay to play" in the quote above?

    I'm very excited to see that this is free. I almost paid $6.99 for it on Monday, but I got sidetracked. Can't wait to try it out. :cool:

    Same for me, if by Monday you mean the day Touch Arcade covered it in 2010.

    Edit: whoops, nope, it was reviewed on a Wednesday.

    What do you mean, no iPhone 5 support? Works fine on mine. If you mean it doesn't take advantage of the bigger screen, then that's nothing to do with support. And why is a game that's perfectly good on an iPhone 4S suddenly not even worth a free download on iPhone 5?
    It's like refusing to watch a classic movie that's been given you for free just because it doesn't fill the screen on your new widescreen TV

    I don't get the logic, seems like your loss to me.

    hi


    I'm really so happy about this, the more people that know about this game the better. I hope this means a sequel is in the works and coming soon.

    By the way this is my first post here hello everyone. I also talked about this game and gave an alert that it was going free on my YouTube channel it's a new one please check it out.

    OK. I'm completely hooked. I downloaded Aralon after this announcement. Fortunately, my semester ended because playing this game is about all I've been doing. How fun!

    Some friends have recommended Skyrim, but I don't currently have a method of playing it (no XBOX 360, no windows).

    I don't even really have experience with RPGs of any kind. I played Zelda: Twilight Princess for gamecube way back when. This is reminiscent in some ways. No platforming or puzzling though in Aralon.

    Now that I've finished playing through it…

    who can recommend something similar to Aralon?

    Adventure RPG, 3rd person?
