Need some games to keep you busy during this holiday weekend? From now through Labor Day (September 5), Gameloft is giving away a handful of Android games and discounting all others to 99 cents.

The giveaway requires a bit of hoop-jumping. For starters, you need to follow @GameloftAndroid on Twitter or like GameloftAndroid on Facebook.

Then, at some random time today, tomorrow, Sunday, and Monday, the company will make one Android game available free of charge via a special link (posted exclusively on Facebook and Twitter)–but only for 2 hours.

The promotion kicked off yesterday with N.O.V.A. HD, which normally sells for $4.99. It was offered free from 2 to 4 p.m. PT. Today’s deal has yet to be announced.

Keep in mind that not all games are compatible with all Android devices. For example, as reported on Gameloft’s Twitter feed, N.O.V.A. doesn’t work with the Droid 3, and the Droid 2 and Droid X versions were cited as having “build issues.”

Still, free is free, and if you don’t mind giving Gameloft a little social-network love, you can score four freebies between n… [Read more]

Hot new iOS games for the long weekend

Several great new games were released this week for iOS that are perfect for keeping you busy during downtime over the long Labor Day weekend.

A couple of days ago, I wrote about Spy Mouse, Firemint’s latest game that has you play as Agent Squeak, the mouse who stealthily steals cheese across tons of cleverly made levels. I highly recommend that you grab that game in addition to this collection, but I found three more that will satisfy just about every gamer’s personal taste.

This week’s collection of iOS apps are all hot new games from different genres. The first lets you draw your path around a racetrack; the second lets you use a jetpack to go for distance; and the third is a beautifully made hack-and-slash RPG.

During the race, you can see the faint line you drew as your car navigates the track.

DrawRace2 (99 cents) is the sequel to DrawRace, an unconventional but very fun take on racing games for the iPhone. In DrawRace games, you don’t actually drive a car around a track. Instead, you draw the pat… [Read more]
