Best Free Games

So far I've got...

1) Dactyl

2) Cube Runner

3) Tunnel

4) Aurora Feint: The Beginning


What are some other good *free* games? I just shelled out $30 on Rolando, SimCity, Orions, HydroTilt, War Inc, and TouchGrind. I obviously won't be buying any new games for a while so let's build up a list (mostly for me, but for others, too).

You might want to try Blackbeard's Assault Lite as well. I really enjoyed the full version.

Sorry, but haven't there been several threads asking about the best free apps?

Trace - not sure how you missed that one. It's my #1 free game. Not a lot to it once you beat it, but that should take you awhile. Also, when vexed was free, that was awesome - punks removed it. Second to Trace would be Aurora Feint or Tap Tap.

Hehe, I... kinda forgot to search the forum...

Tap Tap Revenge, wow... how'd I not mention. Didn't really like Trace. Played too many clones. I already have Jelly Car

No one likes Tangram Pro? I also like playing Touch 4 with friends if they don't have anything to do.

2079 was free for a short time wasn't it? Very good budget game.

I can agree with 2079, and according to iTunes, it's still free. So get it.

It's a good for a quick burst, and I find myself challenging my high scores in a matter of minutes, which is good because you don't have to dedicate a lot of time to it to feel like you actually accomplish something (ie, a High Score). That doesn't mean its easy though....
