This Week's iPad Charts: Of Course Free is the Right Price

This is Mike Fahey with Kotaku, reminding you to keep your pets spayed and neutered, in honor of a The Price is Right game topping this week's free iPad charts. You should probably just pick one—spay or neuter, not both.

I'm not a vet or anything, mind you. I'm just a big Bob Barker fan. I bet the retired game show host is sitting at home right now with his iPad, poking away at The Price is Right Slots and wondering what the hell is going on. I'm right there with you, Bob. Always.

Since this is the first week we're bringing back the iPad (and iPhone, Windows Phone and Android) charts, we're starting with a simple one through ten. Next week we go and make it all complicated. For now...

5. Zone Zero HD

This is the first I've heard of Zone Zero HD. It looks like an insane post-apocalyptic shooting gallery. I can dig it.

Experience the pure skateboarding connection between your fingers and the board. What, you skate with your feet? How quaint.

It wouldn't be a mobile chart without Angry Birds Space. Well, maybe the Windows Phone 7 chart.

The best way to listen to Bad Religion and The Offspring, period.

Don't tell me you've not heard of Snail Bob, and I won't tell you I haven't either.

10. Devil's Attorney

As I mentioned earlier this week, this is so, so very good. It needs to be a card game, a board game—they need to teach this in law school.

Now that we've spent all that money, let's fill our dirty little iPad with free games we'll play for five minutes and then forget are there!

Collect monsters and battle them online with friends? I need to avoid this like the plague—there's just not enough time.

5. Bakery Story Halloween

We're building a bakery. A bakery locked in time. It's like Groundhog Day meets the Nightmare Before Christmas, probably.

Now a major motion picture.

10. NFL Pro 2013

Still not that great, but what are you going to do, make your own NFL game? *cue game creating montage*

Now that we've established something of a baseline, next week we can begin positioning, tracking, and making fun of the NFL game for falling off of the list. That's my prediction. I'm like one of those ESPN guys now.
