Ice Age Village

Ice Age Village is the official game tie-in for Ice Age. Created by top developer Gameloft, it is an adventure game for everyone. While primarily designed to promote Ice Age, itís actually pretty cool. The game takes place at the onset of the Ice Age (keeping in line with the films). This leads to the breakup of the continent of Pangaea. This situation means you have to find new homes for the characters (the same as those in the films).

Jurassic Park Builder

Jurassic Park Builder by Ludia is based upon the popular film series. If you ever wanted to build your own park with dinosaurs, this is your chance to do it for free. The game setup is similar to that of Tap Zoo and Farmville. Here you have to build a park for dinosaurs. The objective is to make money and manage the resources. The dinos make you money that have to be collected, and you than have to use the income to buy vegetables, meat and other necessities. If the animals are well taken care of, they will grow and attract more visitors.

London 2012 Official Game

The London Olympics 2012 has just concluded, but the fever among the sport enthusiasts never will. After having various spin-offs of Olympics games available on different platforms, London 2012- Official Game is nothing on the same lines. It is different and actually serves up the Olympic games with panache and the way it is supposed to be. The game was developed by Neowiz Internet, a developer who has developed quite a few premium apps and their legacy can be seen in London 2012- Official Game.

Offroad Legends Warmup

Offroad Legends Warmup is one of the coolest racing / simulation games for the iOS. Developed by Dogbyte Games Korlatolt, it allows you to drive a variety of offroad vehicles on different tracks. Whether you choose six-wheeled Behemoths, 4x4 off-roaders or Monster Trucks, you need to go over hills, smash barriers and in some cases make your vehicle fly over ravines. The physics are challenging, so good driving skills are necessary.

Microsoft Flight

After a very long-time, Microsoft Studios is back with a major uplift of the Flight Simulator series. This time around it is called Microsoft Flight. This time around, the game is a free version and very well integrates with games for Windows Life. Developed by Microsoft Studios, Flight is one of the best in the simulator series and does the job really well. Instead of the boring environment, this time around the developers have incorporated the beautiful scenic locales of Miami. Allowing users to hover around the beautiful beaches and the likes.

Pucca’s Restaurant

Pucca's Restaurant is one of those game that's so hard to put down. Not only does it feature a familiar (and quite popular) character, it also incorporates great gameplay to the mix. The game puts you in the shoes of a cute little Korean girl who is aspiring to become one of the best chefs around. You start off as a mere underling and have to work your way up the ladder in a 5-star restaurant. You can slowly reach your goal by keeping customers happy and serving them great dishes. Like most sim games, this one provides tons of fun features. Worth checking out if you'd like something to get busy with during your spare time.

Dusty

If you ever wondered how smoke behaves during any particular scenario, then you could definitely benefit from having Dusty in your computer. Now, I know you're probably scratching your head and asking yourself, "what do I need a smoke simulator for?" Well, for one, it's helpful if you're an animator, game developer or artist and you want to realistically portray how smoke would flow when a fire is lit up. The program is available for download on Windows but there's also a Mac version. The algorithm is based on the Stable Fluids Algorithm created by Jos Stam.

TrackMania

TrackMania Nations is one of the best and most enjoyable FREE racing games we've seen in a while! Nadeo studio - the creators of the TrackMania game series - took all the advantages PC has as gaming platform and created something very unique and addicting. The game lets you drive in solo & multiplayer modes on 65, beautifully designed and progressively difficult new race tracks. The newest version - TrackMania Nations Forever allows even more users to race and interact with each other online. It is a very big download - 650Mb - but if you are into racing games, this one is definitely a must have!

Frets on Fire

Frets on Fire was created as an entry to the Assembly 2006 Game Development Competition by Unreal Voodoo and it placed first in the competition. The game tests your musical skills and the speed of your fingers in a similar way to the very popular Guitar Hero games do, but instead of forcing you to buy the guitar controllers, the game & the console, it lets you play your favorite tunes free using your keyboard and your home computer (and it is available for PC, Mac & Linux). Of course if you would like to, you can also use the guitar controllers or generic joysticks.
