Independent UK developer Rebellion today celebrated the success of its critically acclaimed iOS game Joust Legend by making it free for all gamers on Apple’s mobile devices December 6 th – 13 th.

Gamers can download Joust Legend from here: http://appstore.com/joustlegend

Originally launched in September, Joust Legend’s combination of unique setting, intuitive, reaction-testing gameplay, and hardware-pushing visuals proved a big hit with mobile gamers and critics alike:

“I haven’t played a better iOS game than this for a very long time.” - Capsule Computers, (10/10)

“It looks, sounds, and feels, for lack of a better word, bad-ass.” - Touch Arcade (8/10)

“The graphics on this app are some of the best the mobile world has ever seen.” - Bullz-Eye (App of the Week) 

Subsequently, Joust Legend was shortlisted for two nominations at the 2013 TIGA awards, and played a crucial part in Rebellion’s 2013 Appster Awards nomination as “Best Indie Developer”.

Further glory awaits...

The week long promotion offering the premium title for free also coincides with the game’s latest update – 1.2.0 – which includes new customisation options for players’ knights and trusty steeds.

But Rebellion CEO and champion jouster Jason Kinglsey OBE hints at much more to come for the game:

“We’ve just started out with Joust Legend – it was a fun and challenging project for our team, and the positive reaction to the game was even greater than we hoped for. Today’s update is just a small step towards some great plans we’ve got – getting new players into Joust Legend and offering them new ways to play.”
