8bit Doves-01

Apple has hand picked 8bit Doves to be the Free App of the Week. It is normally listed on the App Store for $2.99, but can now be downloaded for free on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. This is only the second time we have seen the game discounted since release and the very first time it has gone free on the App Store.

Head below for more details:

On top of the Gameboy like color scheme, 8bit Doves features 3 included level packs (Sweet Dreams, Deep Sleep & Nightmare) and a simple but addictive 2 button gameplay loop.

Trapped in a VR world powered by an ancient handheld device, you are forced to endlessly dream in a pixel world of just 4 colours! Doves have taken roost in your prison and though you don’t know it they are the key to your survival. The Doves subconsciously inspire dreams of flight, so take to the skies through the mazes of your imagination and find the exit.
