Infinity Pocket's reflex-testing action game Flick Home Run returns to the iPhone's sales charts following the recent launch of a content-expanding update. Rovio's Angry Birds remains the iPhone's fastest-selling app for the fourth week running, as OMGPOP's Draw Something trails at second place.

Activision's Skylanders: Cloud Patrol disappears from the top ten after a promising debut at fourth place last week: it's currently 12th on the paid charts, and is the 57th top-grossing App. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 reports a sales resurgence at ninth in this week's rankings.

Here are this week's top free iPhone games:

1. Slide To Unlock
2. Kick the Boss
3. Draw Something Free
4. Flick Home Run New Free
5. Design This Home
6. StickWars 3
7. Bike Race Free
8. Battle Duty: Modern Field 3
9. Rage Wars
10. Fruit Smasher

The Falco Initiative's iPhone unlocking sim Slide To Unlock tops the free charts this week, unseating former chart leader Kick the Boss.

A free version of Flick Home Run ranks fourth in today's results, leading to a boost in sales for the paid edition, while App Minis' newly updated interior design sim Design This Home claims fifth place.
