Apple this afternoon named popular color-matching puzzler ‘Jellies!’ its App of the Week for this week. This means that from now through next Thursday, you’ll be able to pick up the title for free in the App Store—a $1 discount from its normal price tag.

In Jellies!, you join Bob the Fisherman as he makes his way through the ocean on a [fairly odd] mission to find his fingers that the wicked Jellies have apparently bitten off. Your goal in each level is to help him catch as many Jellies as possible in 60 seconds.

From Apple’s Editor Notes:

Stylish and silly, Jellies requires feverish swiping to eliminate square creatures as they wiggle around the screen. Mixing the charming simplicity of games like Dots with the fervent action of Fruit Ninja, Aleksei Kalinin’s lovingly designed game will have you chasing higher scores, beating demanding challenges, and unleashing awesome power-ups.

The game has three modes: Timed, Multiplayer and Endless. The Timed mode has you connecting as many same-colored Jellies as you can in 60 seconds, Multiplayer mode pits you against online opponents, and Endless lets you catch Jellies at your leisure.

If you want to check it out for yourself, you can find Jellies! in the App Store for both iPhone and iPad—it’s free through next Thursday. It’s worth noting that there are quite a few in-app purchases available, ranging from $1-$10, so be careful where you tap.
