If you're looking for a new game to play on your iPhone or iPad this weekend, then Apple's new free app of the week is worth a look. The stealthy action thriller, République, is down from its usual $4.99 download price for 7 days giving you a great game to try out and save yourself a few bucks in the process.

You receive a desperate call from Hope, a mysterious woman trapped inside an oppressive totalitarian state. By hacking into the nation's elaborate surveillance network and taking control, you guide Hope through a web of danger and deception across five thrilling episodes.

The game isn't totally free, however. The asking price usually includes the first episode of the game. Future episodes are unlocked by purchasing them individually or by getting the discounted rate season pass. At least this way you really are checking it out for nothing before deciding if it's worth your money.

It's an impressive looking game with some big name voice acting behind it. If you've ever been curious, there's no better time to give it a try. Grab it at the App Store link below and head on into the comments and let us know what you think once you've played it.
