For my money (none of which I actually had to spend), this is the best week for free iPhone games in 2018 so far. The list this week is as long as its been in months, and it probably could have been even longer.
Some of the highlights this week include a turn-based spinoff of the Dissidia Final Fantasy fighting game, a golf game that boasts thousands of levels, a soccer sim that you play by rolling dice and a third-person shooter that looks like it could be on consoles. And that’s not even half of what’s on deck.
