Free full/lite puzzle games that take a long time to finish?

What are some free and lite version puzzle games that take a looooong time to finish? I.e. they feel like full paid games.

Thanks!


Trace
Squares
ChocoBan (Sokoban-like game)
BrainFreeze (like the Palm game Vexed)
Pakoon 3 - really good but short, 26 levels
CatchaMouse

While it isn't a game, nor does it take long... it is free. Can you guess what it is?

Personally I like puzzles that are randomly generated for infinite replay value PuzzleManiak and ArcadeManiak try demo do that. Squares and Touch Ghosts also does that.

Keep them coming! I'll update the first post as games are suggested.

There's a free game thread but I thought it'd be great to have a puzzle one. I'll keep it updated.

You could check out Subway Shuffle Lite. It's a fun little puzzle game

Few More

http://appshopper.com/games/movin-maze-3d
http://appshopper.com/games/phit-phree (20 levels,if your not good it'll last)
http://appshopper.com/games/quadrix
http://appshopper.com/games/open-doors

Also theres a Tangram lite that holds a few puzzles last I new, can't think of the which one it is.
Not sure how real long of a game play each holds but between them all its taking me forever to finish them.
