    I haven't gone through all of them but as a former apple user (I can't wait for my nexus 7! i sold my iPad for it.)..one thing that stands out to me is 1.05 for a game? 3.21? what's with the odd prices? where's the standard .99 or 3.99 or 2.99?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Those are probably converted prices from foreign developers who didn't set prices specific to your country.

      • http://btwnworlds.tumblr.com/ Lou G

        Ah, that would make sense! I'm new to Android, so I didn't think of that at all. I'm sitting here thinking "wow...Google will let people get away with anything!"

    • andiwd

      Probably due to conversions. The developer has probably chose a price in their local currency that's been converted to the odd prices you see.

    • http://twitter.com/daveloft Dave Loft

      It usually is .99 or 2.99 in the country the developer is from. But when it's purchased in another Country, Google does a currency conversion for the developer and you end up paying an odd amount like $1.05.

    • Himmat Singh

      I don't see anything wrong with that. Even if you don't count the currency conversion, it's ok. Good infact. You don't see so generic pricing.

    • GazaIan

      They're converted currencies. I honestly like this better because you can't overcharge or undercharge in another country.

  • http://www.torikomix.pl/ Adam Szopa

    Neuroshima Hex is one of my favorite board games! Looking forward to playing it on my phone.

  • Josh C

    Flow obviously designed for windows phone (its a free app on windows 8 too). That said, its actually a fun game, spent a bit of time playing it on windows 8, look forward to it on android.

  • http://twitter.com/dynomike666 Mike

    Hey Artem, I'm sure these posts take a lot of time but they really set you apart from the other Android sites out there. GJ, keep it up.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Thank you.

    • hyperbolic

      Totally agree with you!

      • Chris

        Thirding this.

  • Lachlan

    Any chance of a full review of 'The Naked Gun: ICUP'?

    Also, I see you pee... *hilarious* :-D

  • Himmat Singh

    Well, I've only installed about 10% (7) game from this huge exhaustive list. Out of those, the ones I find respectable somewhat are Dead Trigger (but a big disappointment), Oscura and Puddle THD (refreshinly good!).

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=710725171 Karthik Nayak

    this are some amazing games , nice list , thanks a lot :D

  • bobby.tables

    Speedball is just pure awesomeness. Worth every penny. I loved it 20 years ago on my Amiga 500 and it is still so much fun! Brutal Deluxe FTW!

    • http://www.talltechtales.com/ Mattias

      I saw Speedball, can't wait to try it! SB 2 BD was awesome on the Amiga...in fact...I'm pretty sure I still have the original disk somewhere...

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MCERGZBEMMYO7SY23NYDXSLOIM db., heyu

    I have a problem with all mobile platforms. The top apps are junky, digestible fodder... games.
    It makes me wish that, (yes, through a lot of these game development, apps improve) that there were more useful applications to make mobile devices more indispensable. I don't need 10 different apps to wipe out background apps,or battery managers, cache cleaners. I'd like to see austerity Improvements in personal assistants, voice recognition, better GPS, money apps time apps, activity apps, not fruit ninjas, or angry birds. This are the things that make smart phones more then a cell phone.

    • Nicholas Loomans

      It would help if you didn't look for those in a list of games...

  • Ping Ling

    Broken sword looks interesting but 541MB???

    • http://www.talltechtales.com/ Mattias

      I've seen a lot worse than that....

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        I think the record I've seen was 2GB.

  • Michael

    I haven't downloaded so many games in a long time! i love how fast games are starting to come out!

  • http://www.talltechtales.com/ Mattias

    Wow, you weren't kidding...I need a month at least to get through these. I've already been through some of them and there's some real good games on these pages. Good work getting it all together, Artem....as always!

  • http://twitter.com/alekhkhanna Alekh Khanna

    Brilliant round-up. Installed nearly half the list ! GJ, Artem !

  • Andrew

    That's probably the most impressive new games list I've seen yet for Android. Glad to see it's finally getting a steady stream of quality games (now if only we could get the same for tablets; hopefully Nexus 7 will prompt a change).

    Thanks again for creating these roundups!!

  • CJ456

    Man I haven't seen such a fine collection of Android games for a while!
    now I can make all those annoying iSheep I have to live with (not my family, but... other people around me) shut their mouths forever with their "Android doesn't have any good apps"

  • nonotz

    CS Portable really blow my mind .... even though i dont like the control but its a cs quality game with zero lag and its free !

    Nice post indeed!! Just thought if you don't mind the suggestion, my kids love playing with T2 The Elf. One of the things I look for while allowing my kids to play is if the app is spamming kids with age inappropriate ads or not. This game has very clear graphics in my tablet and is not spammy

    Android games are lame, I'm very sorry to say, and I have always ALWAYS bought android phones...
