This week on the Free Apps Roundup: Wizard World Chicago Comic Con started yesterday and you’d better download the app if you want to make the most of things. It has a customizable schedule, a map and much more to help you have a great time. If you don’t like comics (for who knows why), maybe you’ll like Gasketball. It’s a combo of basketball and puzzles. Or maybe you’d like to be a goldfish trying to escape your 7-year-old owner. All this and much more on this week’s list.
The Top Three:
- Wizard World Comic Con – If you’re near Chicago and you aren’t at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con today, then you must just not like fun. This app will help you make the most of the convention with an events schedule that helps you plan your time, notifications of programming updates and contests, access to celebrity and artist profiles and much more. This is the official app and a must download forattendees.
- Gasketball – Take the old basketball game H.O.R.S.E. and combine it with a physics puzzler. This game challenges you to solve over 100 single player levels involving making some pretty complicated 2D shots through some hoops. There’s also an online and in person multiplayer component.
- Chasing Yello – You are Yello, a goldfish in captivity. Your owner, Mathilda, gives you a taste a freedom that you intend to keep. All you have to do is outrun and dodge her trying to get you back. Stay away from that net! But download this quick, as it’s only free for a short time.
