iOS physics game Troll Blaster will be free for the “holidays”. Unfortunately, the developers don’t say how long that is. No matter, pick the game up now for free on the App Store.
From the press release:
Mobile firm eMobiSoft Inc. is giving their audience a special gift this holiday season. In association with Daily App Dream, eMobiSoft Inc. has made their smash hit game Troll Blaster free for a limited time. This announcement comes in conjunction with the recent 1.1 update to their app.
“We are very excited about partnering with Daily App Dream for this free holiday campaign. The response to Troll Blaster since we launched it has been phenomenal. People seem to really love it and the challenge it provides! To get ready for the campaign we also issued a pretty big update (1.1) which fixed bugs and added social media integration.” says eMobiSoft Inc. owner Lucky Gupta.
In addition to the bug fixes and social media integration, Gupta goes on to mention that since the games launch fans have overwhelmingly asked for a few features which have been added to version 1.1. “With the 1.1 update, we also added two in app purchases (IAP’s) which the fans have been asking for. The first is what we call ‘Grenade Power’ which allows players to add one grenade to any and all levels at any time. No restrictions, anytime they have trouble with a level, they could push pause and add a grenade. The second IAP we added was a level skip. The player will receive three level skips which automatically re-generate every week. The game is very challenging so for some of our players this will allow them to gain a bit of an edge.”
Drawing comparisons to games such as Angry Birds, Gupta states “We are happy to be compared to such games as ours is definitely in the genre. Once people play they see significant differences in gameplay such as strategic weapon selection, a greater challenge as well as overall different physics. The environment we’ve created allows for fans of the projectile destruction type of game to easily migrate to Troll Blaster and quickly start playing in a familiar setting. Additionally, a much more subtle feature people really enjoy is the complete lack of load times in the game after the initial game load.”
Troll Blaster v1.1 is available now in the App Store for free for a limited time.
