Higgledy-piggledy courier quest “Totally Reliable Delivery Service”, a YouTube sensation back in June 2019, heads up half a dozen great value giveaways for PC and mobile.

Mixing the wobbly physics of “Human: Fall Flat” with the frantic point-to-point escapades of “Grand Theft Auto”, and bringing support for up to four players locally or online, “Totally Reliable Delivery Service” launched April 1 on PS4, XBO, Switch and mobile.


A deal with “Fortnite” company Epic means that the PC version is free until April 8, so grab it quick; it’s permanently free to try on Android and iOS with a $4.99 (about P250) full game unlock.

As part of its regular weekly giveaways, the Epic Games Store also has domestic mystery tale “Gone Home”, action role-playing adventure “Hob”, and party game “Drawful 2” for free until April 9; “Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments” is the following week’s confirmed freebie.


Virtual flippers and bumpers abound in “Pinball FX3”, whose studio is giving away some of their best tables by way of a special Care Package, which contains the “Aliens vs. Pinball”, “Marvel Pinball: Heavy Hitters” and generally excellent “Star Wars Pinball” pack, free through Steam until April 8.

For Android device owners, we have, at the time of this report, well-received and superbly presented puzzle “Homo Machina,” standard-setting music rhythm game “Cytus II”, and amusing “Message Quest” on our shortlist of now-free mobile games for you to check out.

On iOS, tremendous and surreal minigolf pursuit “Alphaputt” (until April 5), Thix’s bacteria creation toybox “Micro” and chemistry lab “Chemist”, supremely well-rated pipe-planner and color-mixer “Waterbears”, which has the useful side effect of training players in Systems Thinking, plus orbital space jaunt “Astra”, and 90-level dream chaser “Little Luca & The Missing Stars” as our now-free picks.
