Today’s free iPhone app at FreeAppADay.com is Call of Atlantis, from Playrix.
The game is a port of the PC game of the same name that sees you helping Poseidon collect his seven missing jewels from various locations around the Ancient Mediterranean – Rome, Troy, Greece, Phoenicia, Babylon, Egypt, and Carthage. Atlantis has sunk, and this is the only way to restore the Altair of Poseidon, thus saving the sunken continent.
Gameplay itself is a take on the match-three gameplay template. You’ll play through 54 levels, swapping gems to remove them from the screen, and utilizing power-ups (like bombs and hourglasses) to help you on your way.
The game places a large focus on the story, and includes cut-scenes and voice-overs, in addition to educational facts about the locations that you’re playing in. Finally, Facebook Connect will allow you to share your progress with your friends.
If you’re looking for a new version of the traditional match-three puzzler, be sure to download Call of Atlantis while it’s free today.
