A week ago, Apple’s App Store editorial team slashed Horn, a noteworthy third-person action adventure game with great graphics, to zero bucks.

Today is Thursday, which means that another paid iOS app or game has gone temporarily free as part of Apple’s ongoing Free App of the Week promotion. This time around, it’s KingHunt by renowned publisher MountainSheep.

A great time killer that will feel instantly familiar to anyone who has played Fruit Ninja for a few brief seconds, KingHunt is being billed as the next-generation slicing game. The game is now available free of charge until next Thursday, down from its usual asking price of four bucks for the universal iPhone and iPad download, so grab it now while it’s hot…

Apple notes:

Battle the evil puppets that’ve invaded Heart Island by slashing and dicing waves of colorful objects and enemies Marvelous graphics make KingHunt’s goofy fantasy world instantly memorable, and with the game’s fun slicing mechanism and diverse challenges, each region – including an amusing credits sequence – is a joy to play.

The official trailer gives a better feel of the game’s mechanics.

It’s worth mentioning that KingHunt was developed by the independent studio which created Bike Baron, Ice Rage and Minigore so that speaks a lot about its qualities.
