Terra Noctis Free Dreaming – iCade 8-Bitty
The Tuesday game is called Terra Noctis: Free Dreaming by Bulky Pix. I know – a lot to say. But it’s a fun game.
You are a cat, you run across the land picking up blue and red fairies. As you progress through the level, you also find the letters S, C, O, R, and E to gain bonus points. You can also get bonus coins, but you have to look for them. Watch out for the monsters – you can either pounce on top, or shoot them by touching the cat on the screen.
The levels get more fun and the more fairies you get, the more you can trade in the store for hats. Top hats, Indiana Jones hats, christmas hats and more. Of course, you can also get upgrades, but who cares? It’s a cat in a hat. Can’t go wrong with that…
The one issue I have with games like Free Dreaming is that you have to use the on-screen joystick. iCade may have solved that, though, with a new product called 8-bitty. This is a NES-similar controller pad that allows you to play games on your iPad, iPhone or Android device (although Android users won’t be able to play the iCade game pack).

The 8-bitty has the plus-style directional joystick, and four buttons on the right side. The controller pad is wireless, so you can have the device resting on a stand while you use the controller.
8-bitty is $24.99 but pre-orders are sold out at this time.
