Today’s free iPhone app at FreeAppADay.com is Fastar! from Cat in the Box Games.
The game is described as an Action-RPG for people who don’t have time for an Action-RPG. The game sees you playing as a boy wielding a large sword, whose goal is to simply travel from left to right across the game’s fantasy world setting as quickly as humanly possible while destroying geometrically shaped enemies along the way.
You’ll be able to cross the entire battlefield in minutes, but the real challenge comes in doing it over again, but faster, with the entire goal being to one-up yourself and your competition by crossing the land in the fastest time of them all. As any good RPG should, the game contains towns that you’ll quickly pass through, where you can purchase health refills and other goodies with the coins you earn from enemies you defeat.
The game contains multiple gameplay modes and three different control schemes (the primary control scheme sees you tilting to run and tapping on the screen to attack). You’ll be able to post your high scores to leaderboards to compare your progress with that of others, and you can even help yourself increase your standing by taking advantage of the various magic spells in your character’s arsenal, including setting enemies on fire or blasting them with lighting, among others.
