Advantages and disadvantages of free games for iPhone

It seems that the fashion of paying for games on the iPhone has passed, now we see how the App Store is flooded with free games, or so it seems . These games are installed for free and later there will come a time when you will have to pay, directly or indirectly. In this guide, we are going to talk about the best games for iPhone taking into account these advantages or disadvantages that today's free games provide us .

When we open the App Store we have exclusively a section dedicated to games, in it we can see the selection that they offer us with a series of Top in each type of games where they will show us, naturally, the most downloaded , this does not mean that they are the best . In addition, if we look at each of these games, we can see how the price icon has changed in most of them for one that says to obtain since if no price appears it indicates that this game is free , at least when installing.

If you look better under these games that puts obtain we can see a small text purchases within the app , with this means that, although the game have installed for free, you may have to pay to continue playing. This is where we find variety when it comes to facing the truth of these free games that are everywhere in the world of mobile games.

Games with integrated micropayments

It is possible that the game is actually free, although it is quite rare, but the normal thing is that within the game we can obtain certain improvements or some extra option that will make us improve or advance more quickly. This is known as micropayments, where for a small amount of money we obtain some rewards or improvements that will make certain situations easier or allow us to accelerate some situations to reach a better level more quickly.

For example, if we play Pokemon Go , we simply go down the street looking for some pokemon to catch, we have stops where to collect pokeballs, potions and other objects, but these are not infinite and they are over, we can well wait to go through a new poke stop to collect just 3 or 4 pokeballs or we can use these micropayments to buy Pokecoins that we can exchange for objects in the game, among others, the pokeballs necessary to catch pokemons. These purchases are made within the game and they will be charged to us associated with our Apple ID and the payment that we have associated with it.

I have to say that, in most cases, it is possible to subsist in these types of games without spending a penny , you can wait to collect more items in pokemon go without paying, but if the rush runs through your veins and not you can wait, you will have to resort to micropayments to advance more quickly in the game.

Financed by advertising

Other equally free games allow us to install them and do not have the option to purchase within the App, or if ... , in this case the game can be free and financed with advertising, most of the time it is very annoying to see a banner in a screen of this size. You can also get power-ups and other improvements based on advertising, in the application itself we can watch videos to unlock the equivalent of a new level, infinite lives for a while, or some objects.

This is the example of Gardenscapes, a puzzle game in which you will have to decorate and arrange the garden of a mansion, the puzzles are of a different type in which you will have to achieve a series of objectives, otherwise you will be left without a life , these lives are recharged from 30 in 30 minutes with a maximum of 5, but sometimes we can have a recharge of 5 lives in exchange for watching an advertising video in the application.

On other occasions, by paying a small amount of money, we can stop seeing that annoying advertising, it is like buying the application, but in an indirect way, at least they give us the option to play for free if we are able to endure this constant publicity in the screen.

Incomplete games

Other times we will have a part of the game available , we can download this game and install it and sometimes play some screens having to buy the full version to continue with the game, or only play a part of the game where the rest is blocked for the full version. So we can test the game and if we like to continue with the full version , but without the possibility of financing for free.

We are talking about the famous Super Mario Run , in which they offer us the possibility of playing the first screens at no cost, we also have available within the game and for free, some of the modes that it has in addition to the main one. Once these screens are passed, it will ask us to buy the rest of the game if we want to continue playing . In addition, with the purchase of the game we will receive some extra objects for the different game modes.
