Default List of Games That Can Be Tried Free on PC

Flash/Facebook Games:

Action Blox: (caution, iphone version said to be poor; if you like the concept some similar games discussed in the thread below)

Age of War: (called "the wars" on iphone)
Very simplified but widely popular RTS game where you take your forces from the stone age (cavemen, mamoths) through advancing ages (with units like tanks) and send them against the computers units and fortifications.

Amazon Survival:
A match 4 game.

Amateur Surgeon:
Very popular game where you perform wacky surgeries.

Art Thief:
Platform type game where you steal art.

Match 3 with character and charm. Popular recommendation among the match 3 crowd.

Blend the Boss:
This doesnt even work on my computer. Someone try it and tell me what it is, or to remove the link if its busted.

Block Drop:
Recent puzzle game that folks seem to like. The flash version graphics are not as good as iphone ver.

Classic puzzle game where you try and pop all balloons with set number of darts.

Wildly popular word game.

BOUNCE TRAP (sans tilt):
A peggle type game

Bubble Twirrl:
Bubble spinner clone, i.e. match 3 on a rotating board where you need to shoot at angles. Very popular on flash

Bumper Stars:
Puzzle game based on shooting at angles and using pinball bumpers to get all the fruit in 3 shots. Seems to be getting good reviews in the App Store.

Crayon Physics Deluxe:

Daily Jigsaw:
I cant get this to work at work, but apparently shockwave ported their daily jigsaw app to the iphone. Someone try it!

Defend Your Castle:
Castle defense game (obviously)

Diamond Fever:
Interesting mix of bejeweled and tetris.

Downhill Bowling: (requires quick download of a flash competitor)

Drop 7:
Number puzzler that is very highly regarded on the forum

Drop Sum:
Well regarded number puzzler.

Electric Box:
Considered a quality puzzle game.

Fantastic Contraption:
Well known puzzle game...237 users online as I write this. For whatever reason, not currently listed in the "best puzzle games" thread.

Flight of the Hamster:
Your hamsters jumps and you try to have him glide farther. Currently popular on the app store

Considered by some folks to be one of the top multiplayer games. Flash version has mutliplayer, but it looks dead, so try the single player version and trust that the iphone multiplayer is VERY active.

Gem Drop:
A match 3 variant where you drop the gems like tetris, and they dont need to be in a straight line

Number puzzle where you try to lay all the numbers out in order, with some numbers pre-placed.

High Speed Chase 2:

Your a squirrel, and you jump up a tree to get nuts. You need to move around so you can bounce off the nuts to go higher, or you fall and die.

Park a car. Timed.

Loony Aviator:


Moonlights -

Music Catch:
Relaxing and soothing "game" where you catch notes to music. Weak as a "game," but pleasant.

Nintaii: (Nintaii is said to be a copy/based on Bloxors)
Nintaii was voted one of the top 5 puzzle games. Roll a ball through an obstacles course.

Same concept, different puzzles.

Perfect balance Harmony:
Stack tetris like pieces into a tower so that they are perfectly balanced; not timed.

Pigs a Pop'n: (simpler version)
The iphone version is considered a quality puzzle game.

Poker Superstars III:
What you would

Prolix: (some very significant implementation differences, but the concept is the same)
Word game where letters fall tetris style and only dissappear when you make words.

Shift: http:
Puzzle platformer. I believe I have seen it in some people's top 10 lists.

Sumo!: (sumo game; havent tried yet)

Teeterblox: (this is the lite)

Vending Machine Champ:
You bash a vending machine and hopefully a snack falls out. People on this forum seem to like it.

Who has the Biggest Brain:


World War: (World War original) or (World War 2)
Extremely simple "dice-wars" style game/very simplified risk type game. Computer AI is poor.

50 States:
Place states on map; timed.

Links To Be Alphabetized and Labelled:

Airport Mania: (one hour trial)
Battle for Wesnoth: (Iphone version not out yet)
Enviro-Bear 2000: (this is a predecessor to Enviro-Bear 2010)
Glyph: (one hour trial)
Hidden Expedition Everest: (one hour trial)
Pathpix: (trial)
Peggle: (Free downloadable trial)
Return to Mysterious Island Demo:
4 Elements: (one hour trial)

Please add any you are aware of.

Wow, thanks for the help all, keep them coming! Thread updated. Looks like a great way to try some games.

Please note if the iphone game has a different name, or is meaningfully different from the flash game.
