Tiny Tower

It does not promote the in app purchase (but it is available) and since the money process isn't super speedy it is one of those games you'll have to leave and come back to later. It has ads (what free game doesn't?) but they are much more minimal than most games. Tiny Tower is a fun iPhone/iPad/iPod touch game for adults as well as kids!
