Buying iCloud storage does nothing for the amount of storage physically on your iPad.

If the apps were purchased through the App Store, then they are already "in the cloud". They can be deleted from the iPad to free up space and "more games" can be downloaded.

As noted, however, iCloud space doesn't give you more space on the iPad for apps.

Note also that you can change the iCloud storage you "purchased" by going back into the account. This might be an option you want to explore if "purchasing additional iCloud space' is not what you were trying to accomplish.
