    Electric Pig reports today that Id Software has some great news for gamers, as it is offering FPS shooter Rage HD and Rage for iPad and iPhone for free for one week, as the result of a promise that Id made via its Facebook page, that it would offer the game for free when it got 100,000 Likes on the page. Well, that has now happened, so you’ve now got the chance to grab yourself a slice of the futuristic, post-apocalyptic, on-rails, first-person mutant-shooting action for free. Gameplay sees the player participating in the Mutant Bash TV show, where you must shoot the mutants to survive. Various updates have ensured that the game now plays really smoothly too, with really responsive controls.

    Coming from FPS maestros Id and John Carmack (Doom, Quake), and designed to be an introduction to the forthcoming full console, Mac and PC game, Rage really is a landmark in iOS gaming, so always worth a look, and especially for free!

    Click here to download the iPhone version: RAGE for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad on the iTunes App Store
    or
    click here to download the iPad/iPhone HD version: RAGE HD for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    Just got it, and I am surely going to delete and pay for this app! I know when or when not a developer deserves the money the app is. Rage HD is definitly an awesome choice, and I'm playing this right now! :D

    Stupidest thing I've ever heard, you've just got it for free. It's like winning a prize and going 'hang on, I'd rather pay for this'.

    As one of the top players on the leaderboards, I heartily endorse this game. It's my favorite time-waster on the iPad.

    I know but I just couldn't keep it in!

    Yeah I've got it, it's different to how I expected it to be. I thought it would be like dead space, which is my favourite iOS game to date. But it still pretty decent, I'm enjoying this and reckless racing at the moment :)
