Apple is giving away monochromatic platform puzzler Starman: Tale of Light

Apple is giving away the monochromatic platform puzzler Starman: Tale of Light, a $4 saving.

The game is being offered to US users through the official Apple Store app. If you have a US App Store account, here’s how you can claim your free copy of this atmospheric puzzler.

First, open the Apple Store app on your device (not to be confused with App Store).

Tap the Discover tab and scroll down until you encounter the teaser for the game, then tap the link “Download now for free” to get to the screen with the description.

Tap the blue button “Download now for free” at the bottom of the screen to continue.

You’ll be asked to continue redeeming your gift inside the App Store app so tap Continue.

Choose the Redeem option in the upper-left corner and provide your Apple ID password, if necessary. Once you see a message saying the game’s been redeemed successfully, tap Done.

Created by brothers Sergio and Jacobo Abril who happen to be architects, this eerie experience has to be seen and played in order to be fully appreciated. Fans of puzzlers and platformers will be delighted that they won’t find a single puzzle twice in this game.

Although some puzzles require quick action, which can be frustrating at times, this is a very well crafted game that’s monochromatic and minimalistic, but not monotonous. Starman: Tale of Light current enjoys an average rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars on App Store.

It’s cool that this independent mobile title has been fully optimized for iPhone X, making the most of fullscreen mode on that beautiful edge-to-edge OLED panel. The universal download also features soothing music, haptic feedback and a set of nicely done iMessage stickers.

Released in November 2017, this is the first time Starman: Tale of Light has gone free. Grab it now as this Apple Store app-exclusive offer is set to expire on July 15, 2018.
