So-called "casual" games are all the rage, and with good reason: They're fun, easy to learn, usually non-violent, and perfect for those times when you have 5-10 minutes to burn. That's in contrast to your average first-person shooter, role-playing game (RPG), massively-multiplayer online game (MMO), or the like, which can consume entire weekends--and a good chunk of your paycheck.
We have discussed it many times here on the blog, but video game pricing structures are failing the consumer on a monthly basis.

Fortunately, alternatives exist. If you want to give the kids something new for the Xbox, PlayStation or Wii, you can choose from dozens of fun-filled titles that haven't a trace of violence, gore or adult themes.

This week I take a look at another mobile gaming gem I actually broke down and bought recently. As you all know by now, my motto has always been "You can't beat free." But sometimes a good game comes along that justifies spending that hard-earned $2.99. That's right $2.99...stop laughing.
I have a confession to make: I've been cheating on my gaming consoles with low-priced to no-price Android games. Not just on the go, but on the couch at home as well. What have I been committing console infidelity with of late?
Let's take a look at three games that have been capturing my fancy over the last three weeks.
