It always brings a smile to my face when one of the games we consider the very best on a platform makes a comeback on the charts. The brain-twisting puzzles of The Room are on fire this week, and the galaxy is 2.

The Room is currently on sale for $.99. Coupled with its status as Apple's pick for iPad game of the year, there's no wonder it's flying off the virtual shelves.

A sale also explains Galaxy on Fire 2 stealing the top spot on the free charts from Temple Run 2, as you cannot beat that price on the incredibly gorgeous sci-fi shooter, not without getting paid to play it.

Nothing explains why Baby Care and Dress-Up is at number three on the free charts.
