Mass Effect Infiltrator-sale-iOS-01

IGN is now offering EA’s MASS EFFECT INFILTRATOR as its free game of the month.  Regularly listed at $4.99 and with 4 stars from 3,071 ratings, you can now download the game for free on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch for free via IGN’s deal page. We have seen the game go down as low as $1 several times on the App Store, but never free.

This is an all-new Mass Effect story set in the same universe as the events we remember from the main console titles. “As Commander Shepard battles Reapers across the galaxy, veteran Cerberus agent Randall Ezno procures aliens for illicit experiments at a secret facility. But when the Director of the facility goes too far – Randall fights back and vows to bring Cerberus down!”

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:

IGN Stories September 5, 2014

IGN has just announced that its free iOS game for the month of September will be Hitman GO. Typically priced at $4.99, this is the first time we have ever seen this game available as a free download since it was released back in April. Over 3,200 App Store users have rated it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Here’s the premise:

Hitman GO is a turn-based strategy game with beautifully rendered diorama-style set pieces. You will strategically navigate fixed spaces on a grid to avoid enemies and take out your target or infiltrate well-guarded locations. You really have to think about each move and all the Hitman tools of the trade you would expect are included; disguises, distractions, sniper rifles and even 47’s iconic Silverballers.

To take advantage of this offer you must go through this IGN promo page and and click the “get my free game” button. From there, you will receive a unique promo code that can be used to redeem a copy of Hitman GO for iOS.
