There are so many games in the iTunes App Store that sometimes it's really hard to figure out what to download and what's worth playing. There's also the dilemma of the age old adage that if it isn't broken, there's no point in fixing it. And, well, so many game companies have already perfected the kind of games we're looking for, so why bother looking anywhere else? Well, I can answer this one for you: do the words "free" ring a bell?
If you wish you had a free alternative to popular games like Plants vs. Zombies and Bubble Bobble, you're in luck! I've found exactly what you're looking for. Maybe. Take a look for yourself after the cut and save a couple of bucks on all those big blockbuster games with these free alternatives. Because you can't spell "free" without the "f" from "fun", right? Glad we're all in accordance here.
