Rolocule is a developer team who have been showing a lot of Apple TV love. They brought a couple of games to iOS which are playable exclusively with an Apple TV, essentially turning your iPhone into a controller and the TV into the game arena. This not only resulted in a new genre of games as Motion Gaming but also added a health and exercise component to gaming.
If you’re a regular follower of Apple TV Hacks, you might remember reading a similar story before. Earlier this year, Apple introduced a promotional offer for Apple TV, thanks to which every purchase of the set-top box would come with a free $25 iTunes Card. And as per Apple Online Store, the deal is live again.
You are probably already familiar with Motion Tennis for Apple TV, an app that brings Wii-style gaming to Apple TV.

You can read our in-depth review of Motion Tennis here.
Celebrating yesterday’s Djokovic’s great victory in Wimbledon (as well as last week’s Independence Day…), Rolocule has reduced the price of Motion Tennis from $7.99 to ZERO, so go and grab your free copy of the game now, as this amazing offer may not last long.
