Although there are plenty of great games to purchase for the iPad and the newly-released iPad 2, not everyone likes paying for them no matter how cheap they are. However, there are also a lot of free games available on the Apple App Store, and some are just as good as or better than the paid ones.
Craig Grannell over on the techradar.com website has provided a list of what he believes are the Top 40 best free iPad and iPad 2 games available to download. The list of apps range from puzzle games such as Trainyard Express, which features a total of 60 puzzles, to platform games such as Cliffed: Norm’s World XL.
Air Hockey Gold is another game on the list and although this is in fact a universal iOS game, it does work better on the iPad’s larger screen. Another game that made it onto the list is Aurora Feint 3, which has been described as Bejeweled welded onto a basic role-playing game.
If you enjoy playing puzzle-adventure games, you might just like the Bub — Wider game. Players have to tilt their iPad back and forth to guide a bubble around the forest. The aim of the game is to collect different seeds such as popples and zing, while avoiding foes such as thurns and zanpets.
Other free games featured on the list include Checkers Free HD, Dizzypad HD, Flick Kick Field Goal Kickoff, AlexPanda, Paper Toss: World Tour HD and SLS AMG HD. You can see what other free games are on the list by visiting the techradar.com website.
