Older "Must Have" Free Games?

You post em, I'll test em!

Games must be:

2. New or old but always FREE
3. Avoid "lite" versions & freemiums
4. Ads are OK but shouldn't affect gameplay

Games I've personally played & recommend:

Phoenix HD

totally recommend rRootage... it was one free game I had on my iPod for about a year before I decided to upgrade and buy the HD version without ads... =oP

But really, I've gotten more play out of that than any other game that's been listed... =oP

oh yeah... also, MOFUYA has put out some other great free games... I really like the Baseball one... =oP

Doodle Find is really good. I mean, you may not get into it, but you'll know that after 10 minutes with it, and if you do get into it, your going to be into it for a long while.

Currently playing Hero Academy 2 and South Park Phone Destroyer

Nice thread. Good list so far. I'll try to think of some others.

Not that "old", but since you have Bug Heroes in there, I'll mention Frisbee Forever. I know it's got a huge thread in the main forum, but there's some that might not realize it's free. Gotta say it's got tons of content that is fairly easy to unlock without IAP.

Probably the one always-free app that I've played the most.

EDIT: Noticed you were trying to avoid Freemiums, but like Bug Heroes, I feel this is a big enough game to play without IAP. But feel free to leave it out if you feel it doesn't qualify.

A few other decent freebies... Undercroft, Kill the Dragon, Space Deadbeef, Zombie Meatballs, Project-T

Edit: Removed app info which is now listed in original poster's first post.
