Today’s free iPhone app at FreeAppADay.com is Chicks, from Triniti Interactive Limited.
For those familiar with the Lemmings video game franchise, Chicks is essentially a clone of that ideology. The game’s story surrounds a group of innocent little chicks that find a hole in the ground. Upon investigating the hole, they find that it’s actually a portal to another dimension. Now, the Chicks are stuck in a strange world filled with dangerous obstacles and harsh terrain (deserts, glaciers, and so on), and it’s up to you to help them escape.
You’ll do so by using tools placed along the bottom of the screen, such as intertubes that allow the Chicks to float over water hazards or stop signs that direct their movement (that is, tell them which way not to go). The game contains 32 levels, with the goal of each being to rescue a set number of Chicks before time runs.
The game takes place across four different environment and includes eight tools in all, along with the ability to double tap to zoom or tap and drag to pan around the landscape for a better view.
Make sure to download Chicks while the game is free today.
