Apple is highlighting a great game this week with Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Pirates in the App Store as the free app of the week. The game would normally set you back a cool $4.99, but now you can get in on it for free this week for your iPhone or iPad. The game still offers in-app purchases, but at least you'll be spared from the up-front cost as well.
A quick heads up that Ridge Racer Slipstream is this weeks free app of the week in the App Store. The arcade racing King came back to iOS in December 2012 with all the drifts you can handle. And if you snag it now, you're saving the $2.99 asking price.
If you've yet to sample the tire squealing delight that is Asphalt 8: Airborne, then you're in for a treat as Apple has selected Gameloft's latest racer for the the Free App of the Week promotion. It isn't the first time Asphalt 8 has gone free, but there's never a better time to snag yourself a copy.
