Chillingo Lines Up 15 Free iOS Games for the Holidays

When every iOS game on the list for your Best Games of 2012 Sale promotion is free, it's no longer a sale — it's a giveaway, and when one of those games is Pony Trails, that's a steal.


Seriously, if you're into horses or know someone that is, Pony Trails is a nifty little simulator that has absolutely nothing to do with all of that cartoon business. Heck, download it even if you couldn't care less — it's free, along with the Diablo-ish Orc: Vengeance, the stark and lovely Endless Road, at least two Kotaku Gaming Apps of the Day—Sky Hero and Word Derby... why don't I just list them all? We'll do that.

The Last Driver


The Diversionist

Endless Road was neat for about 5 seconds. Then, after upgrading the first car for 200 coins, I noticed I needed 2000 coins to upgrade to the next car. I glanced at my stash of 138 coins, and promptly deleted the app. ORC: Vengeance looks like it can be neat.

FYI, Gameloft is having a sale on a few titles. I picked up 9mm and Wild Blood (I read the camera has been improved for that one, so gave it a try for a buck). Stay away from The Dark Knight rises, even for a buck. It's impossible to play and super boring. And Ubisoft is offering Prince of Persia Retro for free, but no save game, so we'll see how far I can get in one session on the throne.
