Apple has just named “Slayin” its App of the Week for this week. This means that from now through next Thursday, you’ll be able to download the endless action RPG for both iPhone and iPad for free—a respectable savings of a buck.

In Slayin, players are asked to choose from one of six heroes, including a knight and ninja, and use them to slay as many monsters as possible. They’ll also be tasked with leveling up and acquiring equipment and spells along the way.

From the App Store Editors’ Notes:

True to its name, Slayin drops you into a lovingly stylized fantasy world with a single objective: eliminate monsters. Fast action, retro graphics, and a delightful chip tune soundtrack channel the high-score hysteria of old arcades, while role-playing fans will enjoy upgrading their character and customizing the game world. Six selectable heroes and multiple game modes add even more variety to this deceptively deep, wonderfully replayable experience.

And here’s a clip showing the game in action:

Slayin has been a popular iOS game for a long time, averaging a 4.5 out of 5 star rating in the App Store on nearly 30,000 reviews. It’s a bit outdated—last updated was in January 2014—but it’s still easily worth grabbing while it’s free.

You can find Slayin in the App Store for free.

    Ugleh game.

  • Ah! Got my hopes up that there was another update to this. It’s a fun little game, has it’s challenges but also fun to play for short periods of time. Would have liked another update but I guess they’ve moved on.
