I want to search the app store for similar games so I can see how much competition there will be for any apps I am thinking of designing.

Knowing how many clones/similar games there are plus there prices and success rate would go a long way in deciding which ideas to take forward.

Is there anyway to do this easily on a pc (I do not have an iPhone)

You can run iTunes and thus browse the store on either Windows or Mac. And actually I think you can browse the store through the iTunes website (not 100% sure of that since I've never tried).

To actually play the games you need an iOS device (iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad).

You can browse the app store from the iTunes site, but it's not nearly the same as in iTunes. Might as well just get iTunes. – doppelgreener Apr 16 '12 at 11:52
