Remember when your mom used to tell you to go outside and play? Well thanks to the miracle of the iPhone you can go outside and play -- from inside. All it takes is a few apps for you to deceive your family and friends (Hey mom, I just played Frisbee with all my friends). And guess what? They're free right now. Party!
You know that old saying "You get what you pay for"? Well, it holds up just about everywhere, but the App Store is pretty obviously an exception.

Thing is, if you don't have the original, you won't know if our alternatives are better, so we think you should consider getting both!
Physics might not seem like a qualifier that should ever go in front of "games" but the iPhone has other plans. On any given day, there are dozens of "physics games" selling like hotcakes in the iTunes store.
