If you’re a football fan, the day after the Super Bowl can be a very sad time…especially if you’re Mrs. Tom Brady, apparently. But as I often say, don’t hate the game, hate the league. Just turn away from the NFL. Give it up. Don’t pretend watching the draft in April is interesting, or that free agency will make a difference. Rather, stick it to Roger Goodell by playing some iPhone and iPad games. We’ve got a couple limited time freebies available today, neither of which have anything to do with football or MIA’s finger.


Instamory is an iPad version of the classic concentration game in which you memorize and collect matching pairs of Instagram photos. You can either play with your own Instagram photos or choose from over 150 million public ones. Every day you’ll have a new card set to discover; all you need to do is to type in what kind of images you’d like to play with.


Though based on Instagram, there’s no Instagram Account requirement, so even non-instagramers can play the game.

Instamemory requires an iPad and iOS 4.0 or later.

Kona’s Crate

You’ll want to hurry on this one, as it’s only free today via OpenFeint’s Free Game of the Day.

Kona’s Crate tasks you with delivering wooden crates to Chief Kona by controlling a jet-powered delivery platform…because I guess Chief Kona doesn’t care what brown can do for him. Compounding the problem is the fact that Chief Kona always seems to be waiting at the end of twisted hallways full of floating blocks, steam geysers, TNT and more. You’ll have to squeeze through tight spaces and turn sharp corners at blinding speeds in order to achieve time-based and skill-based awards.

Kona's Crate

Kona’s Crate contains 60 levels, broken down into 3 campaigns. The iPhone version (for, alas, the iPad version is not part of the free festivities) is compatible with iPhones 3GS, 4 and 4S, iPod touch (3rd and 4th gen) and iPad, and requires iOS 3.2 or later.
