5th Cell's Run Roo Run goes universal, free for a week


Run Roo Run, the best game you're likely to play on your iOS device about a kangaroo bouncing on tires, is free for the next week on the App Store, as Apple's "Free App of the Week." We recommended it without reservation at its outrageous regular price of 99 whole cents, so we are even less hesitant to tell you to pick up the touch-based platformer for free.

That free download will work on your iPhone and your iPad, as along with the freebie announcement, 5th Cell has updated Run Roo Run to be a universal app. It just got that much easier to recommend.
