Look, there's quite nothing to say here. DeathSmiles was a steal at $11.99, the price it launched at, and it's nothing more than an absolute must get now.

There's nothing more than I can do to convince you, so by now you should have already smashed that "get" button on the App Store.

If not, I'll find you... And I'll probably download it on your iDevice when you're not looking.

Oh and the game's free in celebration of its upcoming release on Steam. So if you like it a lot, you could still buy it there to support Cave.
