Lite versions are definitely beneficial as seen from the success of iShoot and Assassin’s Creed; both of which boosted considerably in sales in correspondence with the lite version gaining popularity. And with that said, Gameloft has been releasing lite free versions of all their games while other developers have been following the demo model.
Here’s a small roundup of the recently released lite versions, and almost all are worth a download. If you’re too lazy (like me) to download the lite versions, I think it’s safe to say that you’ll enjoy all of these games.
- iBlast Moki (Review)
- The Settlers (Review)
- Rogue Planet (Review)
- Battle for Wesnoth (Hands-On Preview)
- Mini Squadron (Review)
- I Dig It Expeditions
Most should be worth your time and download. If you don’t like it, there’s nothing really other than to delete it; and if you do, support the developer and buy the game. Most of the games listed above are less than or equal to $4.99, a quite reasonable price.
