The best free iPhone games
It's funny how a new games system can actually alter our speech patterns. As I hunt through the App Store now looking for free games, I come to realise how many new words I've been taught since it launched.
'App' seems to have been accepted as a preferable alternative to 'software', while fiddling with capitalisation is now perfectly acceptable as long as the capital letter is preceded with a lower case 'i'.
And even though my spell checker still doesn't like it, 'Lite' is undeniably the buzz word of the iGeneration (you see! Even I'm doing iT now). Even though it's not actually a word, its meaning is understood by every iPhone and iPod touch user across the world.
If something's 'Lite', it's free, but has reduced functionality and, for the most part, has a full version counterpart that you can pay for.
Of course, we could just say 'demo', but that's not yet been approved or copyrighted by Apple, so for the time being we're going to have to stick with Lite.
'Free' is a word that's not going to be so easily put aside, of course. 'Free iPhone games' is the phrase that brings a lot of budding iPhoners directly to Pocket Gamer, so I've spent the afternoon sifting through an iSea of Lite games to dig out some freebie gems just for you. I mean, iYou. Whatever.
Spaceballs, Bryan Mitchell
No, Spaceballs sadly isn't linked to Mel Brooks's classic spoof sci-fi movie, but it's still well worth a look.
It's a free version of the match-three chain style of game, in which you're required to shoot coloured balls into a long and winding line of other balls. Once you punch together a row of three or more same coloured spheres, they evaporate, and the chain is shortened.
It's relatively new, but it's going down a storm over on the App Store thanks to several different game modes and an online high score leaderboard, so check it out if you like a good Zuma-clone.
