Free games come in all shapes and sizes. Some are mere demos, some are freemium titles trying to lure you into spending cash via micro-transactions, while others are genuine big-hearted freebies.
The most maligned type of freebie is the advergame – a program that's designed with the sole purpose of bigging-up a product, usually reeling you in with the promise of a full free game.
This week has inexplicably been a big week for the advergame. A handful have been released, and they range from the great to the comically bad.
