Saturday’s free iPhone app, as reported by FreeAppADay, is Battle Bears 1.5: Zombies! Named as one of the best games of the year by TouchArcade, Battle Bears stars Oliver, a teddy bear who is stranded behind enemy lines. The goal is to fight off unending waves of pink teddy bears who want to hug Oliver to death. Battle Bears 1.5 throws zombies into the mix, and introduces new weapons, like the machine gun, shotgun, flamethrower and laser gun. New bosses and cut scenes have also been added. Controls are easy; use one thumb to aim, and the other to tap and fire at your swarming foes.
If you think this looks familiar, you are correct; Battle Bears has been free before. But with simple controls and a wacky sense of humor, and a price of $0, you can’t go wrong, so make sure to grab Battle Bears 1.5: Zombies! here if you didn’t pick it up before. A couple of tips to get you started:
1. To PAUSE the game, tilt your iPhone 90 degrees during gameplay
2. To SKIP a cut scene, tap on the screen during the movie
3. To fire the LASER, press and hold for a long time while aiming the beam with your other thumb
