Following a weekend price drop to 99 cents, EA's Tetris overtakes Angry Birds as the App Store's biggest-selling game, even after returning to its original price of $2.99 today.

EA takes another chart spot this week with The Sims 3 Ambitions, which ranks behind Stick Stunt Biker and Halfbrick's recently updated Fruit Ninja in today's sales rankings.

Flight Control's Game Center compatibility update continues to drive sales for Firemint, meanwhile, as newcomer Lite Brite trails LucasArts' discounted The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition.

Here are this week's top free iPhone games:

1. Virtual Table Tennis
2. Mr. Runner
3. Pocket Frogs
4. Pimple Popper Lite
5. Color Fill
6. iBasket Free
7. Battle Bears: Zombies!
8. Coin Push Frenzy
9. Stick Stunt Biker Lite
10. Tap Fish

Wang Xi's Virtual Table Tennis leads free App Store game downloads during a limited-time free download promotion. Mr. Runner claims second place in its premiere week, as last week's chart leader Pimple Popper Lite lands behind NimbleBit's microtransaction-supported frog breeding sim Pocket Frogs at fourth place.

Coin Push Frenzy and Stick Stunt Biker Lite remain popular downloads after impressive chart debuts last week, while a free zombie-themed Battle Bears expansion competes with Color Fill and iBasket Free at seventh place.
