As the case is every week, NextPit brings you a selection of great deals on mobile apps and games that are normally paid for but are currently free for download on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
This list is updated weekly and there will be two weekly editions posted on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Between publishing this article and the time you actually read this article, some apps may have become paid for again. So keep that in mind before coming at us in the comments section!
If you do manage to find an app for free but you can’t really use it right now, we suggest you install the app anyway, then delete it from your device. That way, the app will become part of your app library and you can install it again for free when you need it.

(€1.09 ):released in 2015, this game has won quite a few awards, mostly for its design. It’s a puzzle game that plays with perspective and shadows. It’s full of in-app purchases, though.
