I'm not sure if there already was a thread like this. Our forum search is coming up short as always.

Anyway, newly discovered today (though it's already on the Market for a few days): Grand Prix Story!

Full: http://goo.gl/ntXRz

Lite: http://goo.gl/xi7Zk

Another game in the Game Dev Story template, but this time you own a racing team trying to build the best racing car and making money by winning races.

I liked Hot Spring Story, but it felt more like a 'Theme Hot Springs' without the humour. Grand Prix Story is a lot better and at least tries to come across as a bit deeper than its predecessors. Do you upgrade your current car or scrap it for better research? Sign that driver for another year, or exchange him for a crappy driver that brings along a monthly income? It's all rather nifty and watching a race, crossing your fingers, hoping your driver takes home a cup is excellent. To me the best 'Story' Kairosoft have developed so far.

Anyway feel free to add more Android gems as we definitely need to filter stuff.

Glad someone started this thread.

X Construction.

Hex Defense

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.gotow.hexdefense&feature=apps_topselling_paid_game

Anyone any idea on how PES plays on Android? Up to now I just find "conventional" games control terribly, so I'm a bit put off buying it.

Been digging around for some games today actually. http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/ seems a good resource, though perhaps not quite to Touch Arcade's standards. Hyperactive Ninja is probably the highlight of the day so far, and there is a lite version available.

X Construction looks quite neat, Bridge Builder basically, right? And whilst I'm sure I wouldn't get on with any of the Story games, the only people I think I would like to recommend Grand Prix Story to are iPhone owners - d'oh!

Edit: and thanks to Cyhwuhx for starting the thread. Let's hope it flourishes...

I don't get Construction X love at all, not fun IMO. Sorry!

I've been playing this one a lot recently, Guns N Glory:

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.hg.gunsandglory&feature=search_result

I love tower defence games and this plays with the form a little by allowing you to move your "towers" (Native Americans, cowboys, Cannons, Dynamite equipped banditos and gatling cannons mounted on trains) there are power ups and extra finances to collect around the map and units can be upgraded. It costs less than a pound and is perfect for five or ten minute games.

Woah, feels like that game has come out of no where, downloading now.

It isn't a bad game tbh! Various different control schemes, but the more traditional pad layout seems to work well enough. I've wasted many a lunch time winning the Champions League with Cluj!

Forgot to add Chaos! Very good version too. And its FREE!

https://market.android.com/details?id=chaos.app&feature=search_result

Also,

Spaghetti Marshmallows - Bit like World of Goo

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.fiffigt.spaghetti.lite&feature=search_result

Archipelago - Very simple RTS but really works on mobile

Oh crap, Legends of Yore is thoroughly addictive stuff! So much better than the Zenonias and their ilk.

Downloaded this last night, and sat there for a good hour or so playing it.

Absolutely fantastic!

Do you guys know if it's worth setting up an online account for this? I see there's options to login on the intro screen, but aren't really sure what it gives you if you do.

No idea yet. Going to try that tonight I think. I did upgrade anyway. :P

Gameloft do some decent games if you have a powerful enough phone and you can bear downloading 200-800MB files over your wifi. They do tend to 'borrow' ideas though (as discussed in the latest issue of Edge):

Dungeon Hunter 2 - Diablo style clone

Shadow Guardian - Uncharted clone

Eternal Legacy - Final Fantasy clone

Hero of Sparta - God of War clone

Sacred Odyssey - Zelda OOT clone

Nova - Halo clone

Games are currently 3 pound if you browse their web site via your phone but are often on offer for 99p - don't bother with the Android Market.

Also emus - some are quite good:

"Yongzh has had his apps taken down from the android marketplace. To please the people who have already purchased the app, he has temporarily allowed access to all the emulators on the 3rd party app store Slideme http://slideme.org/.

It is free to anybody that want's to download and use his apps for 2 weeks,

I am not suggesting you pirate software for the emulators at all. Just to play back up of games you already have. The reason his apps was taken down by Google was that he used other people's code and sold the apps.

Nesoid - Nes

SNesoid - Snes

Gensoid - Sega Megadrive, Genesis

GameBoid - GameBoy Advance

GBCoid - GameBoy Color

Gearoid - Gamegear

Ataroid - Atari 2600

N64oid - Nintendo 64"

These are the full versions that support saves, snapshots etc. Just tried a couple on my Desire Z and have to say the SNES, Megadrive and GBA ones are very good.

Apparently logging in uploads your saves to The Cloud. So that's a nice touch, I guess. Still melts the morning commute away.

X Construction is amazing. My bridges are a knat's whisker away from self destructing, but doing the job :)

Peggle works really well on a touchscreen, as I expected it to. Only slight bug is zoom mode not working on mine, but I tend not to use it anyway.
