iPhone's Astro Ranch free today
Perfect for frugal space farmers
TAG Games's galactic agricultural sim Astro Ranch will be available for free today in conjunction with FreeAppADay.com.
In Astro Ranch you grow crops, raise livestock, go fishing, and make friendly with the locals on this beautifully rendered 3D planet. When you're not too busy harvesting crops, there are quests to complete and mini-games to play.
It has a strong social element, powered by Scoreloop and Facebook, allowing you to share your experience with others, send letters and gifts to friends, and boast about your accomplishments on your Facebook wall.
Typically £2.99 or $4.99, Astro Ranch is free all day. The game is filled to bursting with in-app purchases, though, so don't put your wallet away just yet.TAG Games's Twitter
