With Halloween being right around the corner, I kinda had a feeling that the folks at IGN would select something suitably scary or horror-themed as their Free Game of the Month for October — and sure enough they have delivered. This month’s freebie is none other than Riverman Media’s ridiculously fun action-horror masterpiece, The Executive (which normally sells for $4.99). To secure your complimentary copy of the game, simply head to this pageand click the big red button that says “get free game.”
The Executive is Riverman Media’s follow-up to the equally excellent Pizza Vs. Skeletons (our review). In it, you play as the CEO of a company that has been infiltrated by werewolves, and it’s up to you to punch and kick your way through 120 hand-crafted levels in an attempt to save your employees — and ultimately the entire city — by foiling the monsters’ nefarious plans. And yep, that’s just as much bone-crunching, blood-splattered fun as it sounds! You don’t have to just take my word for it either; The Executive has garnered a ton of critical acclaim since release, with TouchArcade calling it “one of the best mobile games of 2015” and Pocket Gamer UK saying “(it’s) a loud and brash touchscreen brawler with a surprising amount of depth.”
Please note — you’ll need to go through the above link to generate your unique promo code for The Executive; if you attempt to download the game directly from the App Store you’ll still be charged the full price ($4.99). Codes are in limited supply and are made available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so act fast if you want one.
