Enjoy hours of free gaming on Apple's sharp-looking and affordable smartphone.
Apple's iPhone 5c is colorful and full of cool features. It also plays a variety of video games you can download from the App Store, a majority of which are free. That said, make sure you download these enjoyable titles; all of these games also work on the iPhone 5s and iPad.
Plants vs. Zombies 2
The original Plants vs. Zombies was huge, so hopes were high that PopCap could deliver a quality sequel. The company did just that with the aptly titled Plants vs. Zombies 2, which ups the proverbial ante with new plant and zombie types, imaginative levels set in a variety of locations (Ancient Egypt being a favorite) and a cool mix of objectives. If you thought the zombies in the last game were strange, wait until you meet the Pirate and Chicken Wrangler.

EA Sports did the unthinkable: create one of the finest portable soccer games on the planet, jam packed with over 16,000 players and 600 licensed teams, and give it away for free. Throw in excellent touchscreen controls, improved visuals and online multiplayer, and FIFA 14 is an absolute must for any iPhone 5c owner. Just make sure you have the 1.17 GB to download it.
