Recommended free apps thread

As Quantum thread is no longer updated- this might be a good idea. Idea is to help sift through number of free apps a thread drawing attention to little known quality ones.

Eg today:
Dark Lords SE
Free app through Daily app dream. It's a 2D send units at the enemy typical game but a very good quality one. With added abilities to upgrade spells and talents. (4/5)

Daring Raccoon
Openfeint free one. Retro inspired game little bit similar to Donkey Kong. As it's retro it doesn't look so much - but it has the gameplay. (3/5)

Sand Slides
Another Dailyappdream one. You should try this for it's originality. You basically have multicoloured sand that you have to guide- by drawing lines- into their respective pots. It's not the greatest gameplay but it's good for it's originality. (3/5)

To follow the off topic, appshopper is a life save but not always entirely reliable sometimes slow or missing free stuff all together. I would still enjoy a recommendation thread because not everything that is free is good.

The idea is simple recommendations - hey try out that game it's pretty good. The 3 today are ones that even free-bie snubs I'm sure would enjoy. That being said I could have put more info, in my defence I wrote this on an iPod touch.

Ship it
Decent diner dash type game- except you're putting loads onto a ship.
Simple gameplay, decent appearance and music of game. 3/5
