Apple has today lifted the lid on this week’s free App of the Week, with Quetzalcoatl getting the nod this time around. More details and download link can be found right here.

Costing an already tempting $1.99, Quetzalcoatl is a puzzle game that had extremely good reviews in the App Store even though we suspect most people will never have heard of it. We expect even less will know how to pronounce that name, too.

From what we gather the game itself is quite the sleeper hit, and with the screenshots and app description seemingly not doing the title justice in the extreme the best course of action here appears to be to download the thing and try it out for yourself. After all, it’s not going to cost a penny for the next week anyway.

According to that description, “Quetzalcoatl is your new challenge! Be prepared to push the limits of your brain with its 180 carefully designed snaky puzzles! Dozens of hours of gameplay are awaiting you!” That’s a quote with a big claim, but if you can look beyond the rather mediocre App Store page then you could be on to a winner.

Each week Apple chooses an app to feature as its App of the Week. The app in question goes free for 7 days and then returns to its usual price, so if you think you may want to use or play it at some point in the future it makes good sense to download it when it is part of the promotion. What is there to lose?

Quetzalcoatl normally costs $1.99, so while it may not break the bank anyway, why not grab it for free instead of paying for it? If the App Store reviews we’ve been reading are any indication, you won’t regret it.

If you’re still not sure about what the game is about, we’d recommend that you check out the video below:
