Kingdom Rush Frontiers is IGN’s free iOS game of the month ($2.99 value)

Kingdom Rush Frontiers-IGN-03

IGN has chosen Kingdom Rush Frontiers as its Free Game of the Month. While the highly rated tower defense game is regularly listed at $2.99 and does tend to go sale for $1 from time to time, we are yet to see it go free on the App Store. It has 4.5 stars from 5,038 ratings.

Building off of the basics that made the original Kingdom Rush a hit among mobile gamers, developer Ironhide has added all new towers (18 new abilities), heroes, environments, 40 enemies with “unique abilities” and more. Players “defend exotic lands from dragons, man-eating plants, and ghastly denizens of the underworld.” Head below for more details:

Tommy Hilfiger’s new jacket can charge two iPhones at once, but you probably can’t pull its look off

Pvilion has teamed up with Tommy Hilfiger to create a clothing line that’ll help keep your USB devices charged, but most likely won’t score you any points with the ladies.

The backs of the jackets send sunlight energy though a hidden USB cable to charge a dual-USB portable battery pack. Once charged, you can use the battery to top off your smartphone, tablet, or any other USB-powered device. According to Pvilion, “…the high output solar cells can fully charge the battery pack which, in turn, can fully charge a standard 1500mAh mobile device up to four times.” That means the included power bank is right around 6000mAh.

There’s no way I would rock this jacket around town, but if I had an extra $600 to spare before a camping trip I may be slightly tempted to pick one up seeing as the solar panels are removable. On the other hand, I’d probably save 90% and buy a portable solar USB charger to toss over my shoulder if need be.
