Apple is giving away Gameloft's Fishing Kings game for the iPhone and iPad today, part of its 12 days of Christmas promotion.

When we reviewed the game this summer we were impressed, giving it 5 stars and the Editors Choice label.

Fishing Kings uses a control scheme quite similar to Flick Fishing. To cast, you tilt your device toward you and then flick your iPhone in the opposite direction.

There are 5 exotic locations you can fish in, each with three different spots. These different locales cover deep sea, lake and river fishing.

Over the next few days you can expect Apple to offer a range of free presents via the iTunes Store. Last year the company gave away games including Electronic Arts Trivial Pursuit and an episode of BBC TV show Outnumbered.

So far this year Apple has given away a Cheryl Cole song, music by Duran Duran, and an episode of Father Ted.

Apple promises a "fantastic" selection of songs, music videos, applications, books, TV episodes and a film will be free for 24 hours each day.

The offer runs from Boxing Day, 26 December 2010 until 6 January 2011.

Users can sign up to receive an Apple email alert for each free offer or download a dedicated 12 Days of Christmas iPhone application.

More details are available at iTunes.

Come back tomorrow to find out what Apple is giving away for free on the fifth day of Christmas. Five golden ring tones maybe.
