Free App of the Week: Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch - Tyranid Invasion

This week, it won't cost you anything to kill some xenos

We know you're ready to rock the weekend. Thing is, you don't want to spend a single cent to chill and relax. We figure a free game of alien fragging would be just the thing for you.

This week, you get to download the turn-based strategy game Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch - Tyranid Invasion for free on your iPhone and iPad. Set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, you'll control up to 38 Deathwatch Space Marines, taking turns to plant a bullet in those nasty xenos or chop them up to itsy bitsy pieces with your trusty weapons.

The game should last you for a full weekend, or perhaps even longer, as it comes with 40 missions for you to cycle through. Plus, you'll be spending most of your time grinding for in-game currency to arm your Space Marines with more kickass weapons. 150 alien-smashing weapons and wargear items, to be exact.

And that's not even considering the different skills you can impart onto your Space Marines, all of which could aid you and turn the battle to your favour.

Word of caution: you've got to put it away when the weekend ends and return to reality. It's not easy but don't get sucked in by this addictive game.
