Apple’s free app of the week: Power Hover


Apple on Thursday updated its App of the Week promotion with the game Power Hover. This means that for the next 7 days, you’ll be able to pick up the hit minimal, gravity-defying title on both iPhone and iPad for free—a savings of $4.

In Power Hover, players get to defy gravity and enjoy the freedom of controlling their own hoverboard. You must do your best to avoid various hazards and collect energy as you navigate your way through a desolate, robot-ruled world.

From the App Store Editors’ Notes:

We haven’t seen hoverboarding this cool since the Back to the Future flicks. Oddrok’s fantastic action game lets you grind rails and shoot through half-pipes in levels stuffed with surprises. Rival boarders drop bombs in your path; towering sandworts and lethal lasers dare you to come near. The whole time, an energetic soundtrack and swooping camera give Power Hover an exhilarating, cinematic feel that’s like pure adrenaline.

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

Power Hover is available in the App Store for free.
