Everlands is an odd game, even for the standards of Android Games. I used to play this game every now and then. Everlands involves placing different animals on a hexagon based battlefield to try to gain the numerical advantage.

Have Fun with Crazy Snowboard! Crazy snowboard is one of those Android Games that you are sure is a port from a console, but it turns out it is actually an original game from the ground up. That's not to say that it doesn't borrow from other games – the Tony Hawks series being the most prime example – but it has both an old-school familiar arcade feel and a modern mobile aspect to it as well... more.

Memory games are not something synonymous with Android games but I say Dottouch might be the one to break the trend. Each level introduces a new dot which must be selected. This is available as a free game and is supported by in game ads. These ads appear in between levels and are never really a problem. Initially, I thought this game seems like the dullest game ever, but it quickly becomes a di... more.

You know a game is successful when clones start to appear. Now on the Android Games scene Pandas vs Ninjas arrives. Immediately, the Pandas vs Ninjas game, you are stricken to the similarities with Angry Birds. Taking the template of one of the most successful mobile game to date (baring the old snake game) is a dangerous route to take. Too different and it loses what makes the game good, too simi... more.

Labyrinth is a game that is an update of one of the oldest games ever. Here in Labyrinth, guiding a ball to tend goal while avoiding the interim holes in the course. And so here it is on Android Games. The main problem with the original game was not that it required physical skill but rather that it was continually stuck with one level design. Replacing the physical actions of tilting the playing... more.

Slice It is an android game that really reminds me of what your maths should have been like. It takes shapes, grid paper and somehow makes the entire process seem like fun. The aim of the Slice It game is to slice the shape into a number of pieces all of equal proportion. Now this is easy if for example you need 4 pieces from a square, but given a rhombus and your mind draws a blank. Also only a l... more.

Pac man has been around for years and now I'm so glad that it arrives on the Android Games scene! Pac man is one of the facto faces of gaming, so for the series to make an appearance legitimises Android gaming to the wider world of gaming. This is a port of the championship edition that was first made available on the Xbox 360 and earned rave reviews. Now the gameplay has changed from the origina... more.

The story progresses through different memory playbacks which breaks the game up into chapters. Other NPC's fill in some of the backstory. Replica I... more.
