Other Cheap or Free iOS Games
A game like Fruit Ninja where you cut things to advance is iSlash. It’s free too.
The last game is Grokion, an apocalyptic game where you try to save the remaining survivors who are traveling to the moon on a ship called 144K. Borrowing names from biblical end times prophecy, this action game might even teach you something for free – but not much.

If you are doing any traveling or come across people who speak other languages, Translation Fire could help for free.
