Smash neon blocks for free with Glow Arkanoid; price removed for 24 hours

The Windows Phone title Glow Arkanoid is currently available for free on the store, thanks to a partnership with MyAppFree. The game puts you in control of a paddle, much like Breakout, and you're tasked with destroying the glowing blocks. Multiple balls are included in the gameplay to really make thing interesting and gesture or motion sensor controls can be utilised.

From the developer who brought us HexaLines for Windows 8 and Windows Phone, players are able to enjoy Arkanoid in space. Each level is slightly different when played, with a tutorial to boot if you're just starting out. Once you've got some matches under your belt, be sure to get involved with the leaderboards to see where you stand against other players.

  • Free - Why not?
  • I think the free for limited time strategy is working quite well with devs, I happen to download these apps even if there's zero percent chance of using it, Well, here I go again!
  • Its like a woman seeing 50% off haha!
  • Truest damn thing I've ever read
  • ROFL
  • What's the usual price tag?
  • $2
  • Awesome game. Thanks!
  • IDK what i'm seeing, but when I try to go download it, it say's that the game is $0.99  While this is still cheaper than the normal $2, I thought it was free?
  • Anyone else misread it as "Android" at first glance? :)
  • Is it just normal that I still see it priced as 0.99$?
  • Same. Maybe the site needs time to update. And yes, I thought it said android too lol
  • Yea saying 99cents here too
  • $0.99 cents here too
  • Sorry for little problems with timezones, it should be fixed now... Enjoy this game and thanks WPCentral for covering!
  • Never went free. Still .99. Not a bad deal at that
  • Yeah, I've been checking all day and it was always $0.99... I also tried buy then cancel to force the new price but it never changed. I could try it and see if I like it, but I'm kinda over it now. Hmm just saw at the end it says free 23/08, which is weird as the article was posted on 24/08 for me.
