Maybe it’s because the month is winding down or perhaps it’s just a coincidence, but I found a good deal more interesting-looking freebies this week than usual. Not that I’m complaining. Anyway, here’s this week’s helping of games that don’t require cash to enjoy.

Dark Summoner – Online dark fantasy social games. Typically good stuff. At the very least it tends to be quite popular. So it stands to reason that a free online dark fantasy social game with three different factions to choose between, over 350 kinds of monsters to collect and use, gorgeous artwork, planned monthly events, and free updates (naturally) miiiiiight be worth looking into.

Quantum Legacy – Being able to jump right into an action-heavy 3D space shooter is cool. It looks pretty nifty, claims to have “simple and innovative controls,” is free, and overall seems like a decent way to kill time with no cost. But Quantum Legacy really caught my attention because the hero’s ship is called the “Omnithias.” I mean come on, that’s hilarious.

Small Street – Everyone loves to build their own cities; the evidence of which is plastered all over the App Store. With such a saturated market, it’s nice to see a game that takes things down to a more intimate level. Say by putting players in charge of a few dozen buildings instead of hundreds. Customizable citizens are a nice touch, too.

Cutout Fighter – I’m usually not big on fighting games, but the ones I do enjoy tend to have some kind of visual gimmick associated with them. Clayfighter had claymation, Killer Instinct used cutting-edge (at the time) CGI, Marvel vs. Capcom 2 had Jill Valentine (*swoon*), and now Cutout Fighter taunts me with its paper-focused presentation. I’d say I’m bothered by the temptation, but the game is free so I really don’t care about giving in.

Save the Cubes – Cubeland is in peril after a mishap at the local chemical plant, so players will have to Save the Cubes. Save cubes from “infected” cubes. Yes, it’s a physics-based zombie game. With nothing but cubes. Color me intrigued.

HUNT THE MONSTERS – A princess is nuts for monsters. The king wants to make the princess happy. The subjects… well, they’re just along for the ride. Catching monsters earns gold, gold buys better weapons which can help nab more monsters, and the whole thing feeds on itself until the monster book is full.
