Ready for more freebies? Here are today's featured 3 "Apps Gone Free":

CrazyControl 2 CrazyControl 2 - A side scroller that lives up to its name. Controlling 2 characters at once, the screen is split top-bottom and you must jump, slide, defend and fight your way through 60 levels of mayhem. As if that wasn’t challenging enough, the difficulty ramps up gradually – by the final stage, you’ll be controlling 6 simultaneously. The iPad Version is also free for a limited time.

Skillz for iPad Skillz for iPad - A great musical rhythm game that plays like Guitar Hero, Skillz for iPad lets you put your DJ skills to the test. Using dual turntables, you mix and scratch through 20+ remixes of dance tracks from world-renowned artists, including Diplo, Kid Cudii and others. If you have an iPad and enjoy rhythm games, this is one you don’t want to miss (Skillz is normally $5.99). Check out the trailer here.

Recipes Genius Recipes Genius - Impress your better half with Recipes Genius, now free until Dec 5th (was $4.99). The app  includes 485 recipes with step-by-step instructions, 3,500+ hi-res images, info on calories per person and time required to prepare, ingredients/shopping lists and more.

Infinity Blade 2 lands in New Zealand App Store, US release later tonight

Posted: 30 Nov 2011 10:47 AM PST

The most anticipated iOS game of the year is finally here. The sequel to Infinity Blade (TMA Review), one of the most visually stunning and fastest-grossing apps ever on the iOS platform ($1.6 million in just 4 days) was released earlier today in the New Zealand App Store. Expect even better graphics, more weapons and customizations and 40 new locations.

The God King has been defeated, an unlikely hero has emerged and now you must discover the truth behind the secrets of the Infinity Blade. The continuing journey of young Siris unfolds as you delve deeper into the world of the Deathless tyrants and their legion of Titans. Can you unlock all the mysteries and successfully wield the power of the Infinity Blade in this timeless sword fighting adventure of champions and villains?

The game will still run fine on slightly older iDevices, like the iPhone 3GS/4, iPad 1, and iPod Touch 3rd/4th gen, though iPhone 4S and iPad 2 owners will be able to play the game in its full optimized glory thanks to the power of the A5 chip. Infinity Blade 2 will sell for $9.99 and be available in US/Canadian App Stores later tonight, when the clock strikes 12 (Dec 1st release). The iTunes page for the New Zealand store is now live, however. If you haven’t already done so, check out the promo videos for IB2 after the break.

Infinity Blade II Chair Entertainment, Infinity Blade II, – $9.99

Installation is extremely easy, and all you need is a Pentalobe P2 screwdriver. Price? $29.99 a pop. If you’re interested in one of these mods, you will have to wait a bit as they’re currently sold out. The good news though is that iFixit is making more as fast as they can, and you can leave your email via the “Notify Me” button to get notification once it becomes available again. For iPhone 4 owners (GSM/AT&T), the rear panels have been out for a good 6 months now, and also go for $29.99.
