We haven’t had as much time as we would like lately to put these roundups together, so we’ve spent some extra time on today’s list to make amends. You’ll find 10 different paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free in Friday’s roundup, making this our biggest list in quite some time. These deals won’t last long, though, so definitely download anything that looks appealing as soon as you can.

This post covers paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. BGR is not affiliated with any app developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free when this post was written. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “get,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app anyway, you will be charged by Apple. Some apps may have additional in-app purchases. Subscribe to our RSS feed to be notified as soon as these posts are published, and you’ll avoid missing the sales we cover.

Declutter

Normally $2.99.

Simple controls and simple graphics.
A mass of bullets and enemies.
All you need is to dodge and fire.

Declutter (dot declutter) is a vertically scrolling 2D shooter game (shmup). The controls you need are just two. To move your ship and to fire the homing laser. Because it is designed for mobile devices, you can easily control it on the iPhone / iPad.

Slide your finger anywhere on the screen to move your ship. The relative touch movement is adopted. And tap the second finger to fire the homing laser, and basic shots are automatic.

The homing laser is powerful activity and is also a key to surviving. The homing laser requires the gauge of it at least 1 Lv. The moment the homing laser is fired, bullets around your ship are canceled, and you get cancel bonuses. This is so important. Don’t forget.

The player’s unwitting box is tiny, and it is displayed as a white rectangle in the center of the ship. And when a lot of bullets appear, the game speed gets slow down. Therefore you can keep surviving more than meets the eye.

Four different difficulties. From beginner to expert. The novice difficulty has some benefits from the start, and extra options, and extra lives. If you are a beginner fun shooter, the novice difficulty is a good choice.

In the settings, you can adjust the size of the game view, and you can also adjust the touch sensitivity for slide control. If it is hard to see the screen because of your finger or incongruous with the slide control, try to adjust them.
