Frontline Commando 2
The long awaited sequel to the original third person cover shooter from Glu, Frontline Commando 2 is an improvement over the first game in every way. Short of maybe the IAP, which still plague the game. They wouldn’t be so bad if certain items we’re a little more attainable without having to buy them with real money, but i digress. Minus that one issue, the graphics are better, the controls are more fluid, and you have plenty of squad members, items, and weapons at your disposal to help you through each mission. Playing through campaign missions can help you earn cash and level up you and your squad members. Use the obtained skill points to enhance your players. Even join in the PvP mode against other players online and see who has the strongest squad. For a free-to-play game, Frontline Commando 2 is actually pretty damn fun and worth a look.

Run into any of the glass objects and you will lose a chunk of your health bar. Too many hits and you lose. You also have a set of amount of metal balls to fling, which deplete as you toss them at glass. you can also lose by running out of balls, but you can obtain more by getting combos and more points. The game is easy to play and has a nice atmospheric soundtrack with extremely polished visuals. The game is free, but you can make a one time purchase in the game to unlock the full mode which allows things like restarting from the last checkpoint, as opposed to the beginning of the level.
