Not only is Friday a day to celebrate the oncoming weekend, get a takeaway and go out for a couple of bevvies with your friends and family, for us here at GameSpew it’s time for #FreeGameFriday. That’s right Spewers; it’s the best day of the week.
Okay, okay, so today’s Free Game Friday might be a little different from our usual offerings, but hear me out. It’s worth a go… honest!
Frozen Free Fall is a product of two crazes of recent years: Disney’s Frozen and the match-three puzzler boom brought about by the global epidemic known as Candy Crush Saga. Basically, it’s a match-three game with a Frozen theme applied to it, but as far as match-three games go, it’s rather addictive.
Levels come in various shapes and sizes; there’s all the usual tropes in there, such as getting a high score in a set amount of time, clearing blocks in a limited amount of moves. There are also more unique Frozen-themed level modes too, such as clearing wolves off the board by matching near them, or withstanding so many “ice blasts”. Yes, it’s simple – but it’s fun!
The catch with Frozen Free Fall is that it’s not entirely free. It’s jam-packed with microtransactions, and you only get a limited amount of lives (a maximum of five that refill one every 30 minutes). Five lives is usually enough to scratch a quick match-three itch though; it’s not the kind of game you’d want to spend a long time on in one sitting, but it’s great to stick on whilst you’re waiting for something else to install.
Even better, as Frozen Free Fall is available on consoles, that means free trophies – the Xbox One version has a full 1,000 points, all obtainable without spending a penny. It’s worth picking up just for that, surely!
