Being released on December 18th of last year at a MSRP of $1.99, Push Panic has become a critically praised iDevice game that features frantic and addictive puzzle gaming. Our own Ross Wigg gave a pretty favorable review of it, stating the game offers “quick pick up and play usability” as well as affirming the price tag to be just adequate and well worth it.
If you happen not to be convinced of the qualities of this game, then you got a one-day opportunity to give Push Panic an honest chance, as developer Appular just announced that the game will be completely free today. That’s right, free, as in no money needed to enjoy hours upon hours of good fun. If you ask me, that’s one hell of a great deal, so what are you waiting for? Start downloading!
Here’s the complete press release:
New York, NY — January 12, 2011 – Appular announces Push Panic for iPhone and iPod touch, normally priced at $1.99, is free, today only, at AppEvent.com and on the iTunes App Store. Push Panic, recently rated a Top 25 App of 2010 by Metacritic, is an exhilarating color-matching puzzler that includes four action-packed gameplay modes focused on the creation of explosive color-coded combos. AppEvent, based in the Netherlands, is geared towards bringing a variety of apps created by Dutch and Belgian developers into the spotlight by allowing iPhone and iPad users to download them for free.
Push Panic includes four electrifying game modes: Classic, Score, Color, and Time Panic.
- Classic Panic consists of 50 levels of gameplay. Advance in rank by completing objectives and earning gold, silver, or bronze medals for each level.
- Time Panic challenges players to push for the highest score attainable in 180 seconds.
- Color Panic’s objective is to have no more than eight of the same-colored blocks on the screen at once.
- Score Panic shares the same objective as Time Panic, but provides endless gameplay to reach the highest possible score.
“This is a great opportunity, having Push Panic featured on AppEvent,” says Barry Kostjens, developer of Push Panic. “I previously worked with them briefly on an iGangster feature and it garnered a great response from the audience. AppEvent enables us to reach out to a larger audience, so when they asked to feature Push Panic this month, I jumped at the chance to work with them again.”
