Despite the overload of flashing ads flooding Gametop.com, some of the freely downloadable games there are actually quite good. There’s currently a list of 80+ (and growing!) free games and as befits Gametop.com’s motto, are genuinely free without any hidden catch – you don’t even need to register to download
Obviously, you won’t find any Game of the Year winners in here but there’s quite a good selection of casual gaming gems at Gametop.com for those five to ten minute gaming breaks.
Below are my five recommended picks with a brief description of each one.
An arena shooter by Elephant Games with some really quirky characters – how many games give you the chance to play the Grim Reaper?. Blast away truckloads of enemies, upgrade your skills, pick up new tools of destruction and repeat. RIP3 is best savoured in frequent small doses as the over-the-top bodycount tends to numb the mind (and trigger finger) after playing for too long. A more detailed look at this game in the near future.
2. Pirates : Battle for The Carribean
Defend your island stronghold, protect friendly convoys or simply survive the onslaught of various kinds of ships from the Age of Sail – galleys, galleasses, caravels, huge galleons and even nasty wooden ballistic submarines. As usual, kill everyone shooting at you, upgrade your little island fortress and repeat.
Download Pirates : Battle for The Carribean.
3. Star Sword
A mouse-controlled shoot-em up which grants your space destroyer incredible agility (and makes it a bit too easy for hardcore shoot-em-up fans). Upgrade your ship and weapons after each stage.
Download Star Sword.
4. Extreme Racers
A decent arcade racer which encourages frequent use of the nitro boost since the other cars are incredibly quick. Graphics are reasonably OK but don’t expect GFX like motion blurring and high quality shadows.

5. Forex: Learn to Trade
I’m not too sure this one can be categorized as a game (perhaps a business simulation?) Watch the realtime graphs, plan and send your orders and watch your virtual profits soar. Now if it was so easy in real life
