Android doesn't really have a birthday... and by that, I mean it has lots and lots of "birthdays," like a cheapskate trying to score free desserts at Applebees. You could count the day that Andy Rubin and his team started the original independent company, way back in 2003. You could count the day that the original 1.0 software was released.

The game has been totally revamped from the ground up. It looks great and the gameplay is smooth.
They've added all new modes, new add-ons for your avatar, and new social options...that don't work yet
