    Free games are often add supported and the ads will use up some data. I'd suggest using 3G Watchdog to monitor data usage and maybe JuiceDefender to shut off data at a certain threshold. I'm on a 150mb plan so I feel your pain, however it hasn't been that difficult to track my usage and stay under the cap. Good luck!
