Like Tetris? With a little bit of awkward iOS app work, you can get it for free on your iOS device. You won't find it for free in the App Store proper on your iPhone or iPad; instead, you'll have to head to to the Apple Store app and download it from there.
Apple is marketing the EA version of the once wildly popular Soviet game as "A throwback for you. On us." It's normally just priced at $0.99, but hey, free is free. The idea seems to be to get us to start using the Apple Store, and thus you won't find it unless your scroll down through all the notices about the iPad mini, the iPhone 5s, and associated accessories on the Featured panel.
Alternatively, you'll find it near the top of your list if you click on "Stores" to see the information for your local Apple Store. You can also download the children's book Franklin's Valentines for free, too, while you're at it, which has been available since Apple updated the store for Valentine's Day last month.
You can find Tetris for free in the Apple Store app until April 7. According to the disclaimer, it's "subject to availability," so you might want to act sooner than later.
