If you're a fan of oddball survivor horror on iOS devices and you're also a fan of not paying for things, we've got some great news for you.

The quirky Hopeless: Space Shooting will be available to download for free from Friday, May 23 to Sunday, May 25.

After Sunday, Hopeless will revert back its 99c / 69 price point.


Hopeless: Space Shooting is the follow-up to the Pocket Gamer Bronze Award-winning Hopeless: The Dark Cave and stars the same cast of hardscrabble gumdrops.

These twitchy, and heavily armed, heroes huddle together for protection as waves of monsters rush in from the dark edges of the screen to gobble them up.

Your job, as the player, is to shoot the baddies while letting the friendly gumdrop... things... through to join your love-in.

It's not the deepest game in the world, sure, but it achieves a surprising amount of suspense for its simple presentation and - hey - it's tough to argue with its sale price of free.
