You probably didn’t buy your Android for playing games, but you’ve probably downloaded a couple since you’ve gotten your device. Who doesn’t like a fun game when you’re waiting at the doctor’s office or while lying in bed?
Here is a round-up of some of our favorite Android games, along with the AppBrain.com links, for easy download.
Wordfeud FREE is a new game for Android that is similar to Words With Friends on the iOS platform. Unfortunately, you can’t play the game with your iPhone friends, but you can play with other Android users in anonymous games, or with friends who also have Android devices. There’s a rematch feature and you can play up to 20 games at a time. This game is ad supported; I’ve emailed the developer and they are working on a way to remove the ads.
Hotel Mogul Lite is a fun game that has multiple levels. The game is based around Lynette, whose husband has stolen her business! She has to go through the challenges of getting her business back. This game’s graphics aren’t as fancy as you might want, but I still found them to be a good quality. I have gotten stuck on level 8 a couple of times, so I just restarted from the beginning and tried different tactics to get through that level. This game has a free version (with 10 levels) as well as a paid version with 35 levels.
Bubble is a classic bubble shooter game. Clear all of the bubbles before they reach the bottom of the screen. Simple, yet challenging!
OpenSudoku is a challenging Sudoku game that updates regularly with new games. You have to manually download new games via the app. Game times appear within the game. You can play multiple games at a time and input numbers via tapping on the screen or using the numberpad at the bottom of the screen.
Replica Island is a fun 40 level game with 3 alternative endings. You play the role of a small green robot with rockets for feet, on a mission to locate a mysterious artifact on a bizarre island. The gameplay reminds me of Super Mario Brothers. This game is challenging and time flies by when you are playing.
All of the Droid Women here at WWD love Jewels, a free Bejeweled-like game. The premise is simple – match up 3 or more jewels in a row and get points before the time runs down! This addictive and entertaining game is easy for anyone to learn.
Toss It is a classic game – throw a piece of paper into a trashcan. However, you might have a fan blowing, the wind blowing or even a moving trash can. It’s even more fun when you try to toss a cell phone. Simple. And fun.
Abduction! is also a single player adventure game. You are a cow whose friends have been abducted by aliens. Your task is to climb up into the skies to rescue them. It takes a little hand-eye coordination to make this game work, but once you get the hang of it, you won’t be able to stop playing! See screenshots and more info about Abduction! in Renee’s earlier review. If you want more levels and challenges, download Abduction! World Attack!
