Users familiar with Android-compatible phones such as HTC magic and T-Mobile G1 will be pleased to learn that some great free games are waiting to be downloaded from the Android Market. Here are some attempts, some of which can be avoided!
Mahjong – a faithful reproduction of the Japanese game of couples. Unfortunately, the touch screen is the only input device that can be used with this game, and unless you have skinny fingers to select small images, the touch screen can almost rule it out.
mem-This Simon-says game, in which you have to press the icon as soon as possible after displaying the corresponding icon, has some wonderful weird sound effects and can work well on the touch screen, but the long-term appeal is quite limited.
Myspace War- a 2D shooting game that uses the mobile phone mini-keyboard as the control surface. While the graphics are great, and you suspect it might be better on a laptop or dedicated game console, the controls are too clunky and not worth the download.
MisMisMatch – The goal in this seemingly simple puzzle game is to flip the boxes on the grid (currently not a few boxes) with your fingers so that they match up with the adjacent boxes and be removed. There is a handy tutorial mode to guide you through the basics and various levels of difficulty.
Namco’s “Pac-Man” – After the explosion of the space invaders in the late 1970s, Pac-Man appeared. This is a small yellow ball with eyes. The main goal is to get rid of the pills in the maze and to eat something from time to time. Making things shine when he’s confident, and only oranges can give him confidence will make ghosts feel. This is the perfect interpretation of all the original visual effects, but the touch screen and trackball are not suitable for playing with them.
Popcorn – Use your fingers as a virtual heating element to heat the unpopped popcorn on the grate until the popcorn pops, but be careful not to put your fingers on two long or surrounding popcorns that will burn—one of the better touchscreen games for the Android platform.
Santa Claus War on Terrorism – This side-scrolling platformer features a favorite metaphor of generosity in the Western world, which has fought fierce battles with terrorists. While the title may cause a few laughs, the graphics are bad, and it’s hard to control St. Nick to avoid any of it.
TxtSpeed-In this game, the words scroll across the screen, and you have to type them on the mini keyboard as fast as possible. If you want to type on the micro QWERTY keyboard, you can, but it’s still a bit boring.
