Choosing from the thousands of free iPhone games available on the iTunes store is not the easiest task in the world. You want to have the best games and make the most of the limited storage space on your iPhone. Most importantly you want games that are great for killing time, when you are at a loose end with nothing to do and can just whip out your iPhone and play a game to keep you amused. While the title range of free iPhone games available changes constantly this is a list of our current top ten favourites.
Best Free iPhone Games
Angry Birds Star Wars
One of Rovio’s “Angry Birds” titles should surely feature in a top 10 free iPhone games list and our choice at the moment is the Star Wars version. Use the force with lightsabers and lasers to help the Angry Birds battle pig troopers in familiar Star Wars Angry Birds scenes. The game app is available for free with ads.
Real Racing 3
Real Racing 3 free from EA features stuuning graphics with real cars and tracks in a game that it is unbelievable to get for free. Yes they do try to sell you a lot of in-app purchases but all-in-all this is a great racing game, which rightly features near the top of the App store charts.
Virtual Table Tennis 3
Virtual Table Tennis 3 is a cool game based on the popular table sport. You can simulate various different ways of playing the game such as swiping your finger across the screen to play a smash, and the AI of the computer opponents is based on human behaviours such as reaction, speed, strength, endurance, and defence making it a tricky but realistic rival. Multiplayer mode is available via the Internet and Bluetooth and you can even play your own music from iTunes as you play.
Solitaire has been a stalwart as a time-wasting game since it was included in the original Windows formats. This app version allows you to quickly swipe the cards into the place you want and customise the deck and table to suit your mood. A great app which can offer hours of simple fun as you strive to complete it again and again.
Temple Run 2
The follow up to the enormously successful Temple Run app, Temple Run 2 has more running, jumping, turning sliding and evading as you try to escape with the idol. A great game for those fans of “Indiana Jones” and “Tomb Raider” style titles.
