It seems, with the advent of the Farmville craze, that simulation games are all the rage and the iPad provides a great platform for the truly addicted to play these types of games on the go. Achieve goals, move up from one level to the next in a seemingly endless game, where your goals and achievements just keep getting bigger. Below I had list 5 most popolar Free Simulation Games for the iPad on 2010.
The survival of the Angry Birds is at stake. Dish out revenge on the green pigs who stole the Birds’ eggs. Use the unique destructive powers of the Angry Birds to lay waste to the pigs’ fortified castles. Angry Birds features hours of gameplay, challenging physics-based castle demolition, and lots of replay value. Each of the 210 levels requires logic, skill, and brute force to crush the enemy.
Plants Vs. Zombies
Get ready to soil your plants in an all-new action-strategy game from PopCap! A mob of fun-loving zombies is about to invade your home, and your only defense is an arsenal of 49 zombie-zapping plants. The game itself is a sort of side-scrolling tower defense game with a funky personality. You’ll set up crazy plants who’ll spit speeds at incoming zombies of varying types, and you’ll have to use strategy to determine exactly what types of plants you’ll need to fend off the undead hordes. There isn’t too much of a difference between this version and others, although the iPad release does feature an exclusive minigame, “Buttered Popcorn.” The game also supports up to 11 simultaneous touch points, which brings nothing but horrific images to mind.
As mentioned, there is a dedicated app for the Zynga game that needs no introduction, Farmville. The iPad app syncs directly with your Facebook account, allowing you to keep up with your Farmville addiction on the go if need be. Of course the game on the iPad is no different from playing on your computer, allowing you to maintain your farm and interact with your friends in exactly the same manner. The iPad Farmville app includes neighbour, harvest and gift push notifications.
Pocket Frogs is a great iPad game for kids and adults alike. The pet simulation game will have you breeding and selling frogs, expanding your habitats and trying to level up and accumulate as many awards as possible.
Buy flowers, leaves and backgrounds from the Supply Shop to decorate your habitats, and increase your frogs’ happiness. Take your frogs to the pond to tame them, and find extra gifts, coins and other frogs to breed with.
Battle for Wesnoth HD
The Battle for Wesnoth is a turn-based tactical strategy game with a high fantasy theme. Build up a great army, gradually turning raw recruits into hardened veterans. In later games, recall your toughest warriors and form a deadly host against whom none can stand!

Wesnoth has many different sagas waiting to be played out. Fight to regain the throne of Wesnoth, of which you are the legitimate heir… step into the boots of a young officer sent to guard a not-so-sleepy frontier outpost… lead a brutal quest to unite the orcish tribes… vanquish a horde of undead warriors unleashed by a foul necromancer, who also happens to have taken your brother hostage… guide a band of elvish survivors in an epic quest to find a new home… get revenge on the orcs by utilising the foul art or necromancy…
