Meganoid - is b&%$ard hard, and may cause me to launch my phone one day. More skilled gamers may enjoy it though :)

This is amazing with a hardware keyboard, even so the Oreah levels are just plain sadistic. Great stuff, reminds me of Super Meat Boy a fair bit. Now that I'd like to see them have a go at...

Some new ones I've picked up.

Reckless Getaway

From the makers of Reckless Racing (one of my fave time killing games on my phone) I just had to buy this one. Simple enough premise, avoid collisions, escape the police, perform stunts. Very similar to Racing Moto - 3 lanes, avoid traffic, but considerably more polished and easily worth the £1.89.

Saving Private Sheep

Puzzle game where you have to blow stuff up and take physics into consideration in an attempt to get the sheep safely onto land. One thing to consider though, it does require perfect timing later on, and I've found the touch response to be less than brilliant. It's a minor niggle.

Alabama Smith

Hidden object puzzle game. You either love these or you hate them. Me, I hate them. Should keep the Mrs quiet though :).

Y5 battery saver

Manages wifi by remembering locations of known network and turning it off when out of range. It's free, it works, and it's a lot easier to config than Juice Defender.

Got my girlfriend a Asus Transformer for christmas, can anyone suggest some games that would be new to her as an iphone owner? Her favourite iphone games are Angry Birds, Diner Dash clones, Plants Vs Zombies, Zookeeper, Robot Unicorn Attack, World of Goo etc

I like the Airport Mania games, Cut The Rope, Where's My Water, Slice It, Chu Chu Rocket, Walkabout, Toki Tori, nothing there that isn't on iOS already though (as with your list). You'll probably stuggle to find any exlusives that are any good, or aren't just complete ripoffs of popular iOS games.

the onlive app has been updated to include xperia play hardware controls.

just tried batman arkham city and it is amazing. Such a shame the xperia doesnt have L2 and R2, or it would be perfect.

Impressive none the less, much better than using my pc with the same internet connection.

Pyra Defense

A tower defense game made by an intern of mine after he left the company. It's pretty straightforward save for the fact that you can divert the enemy route if you block it with a pyramid turret. While basic, I was kind of surprised by this 'gimmick' at the same time.

I've been playing a bit of kairo's pocket league story and although good, it's nowhere near as good as game dev or the racing one. After playing it round twice you're almost unbeatable as you can work out all the mechanics and unlock everything useful. It doesn't have anywhere near the progression of the racing one in regards to upgrades and what not. It also has some odd opinions on football itself. There's absolutely no penalties or fouls / cards of any kind, there is no ' ball in play' or extra time meaning that you can not get a goal if the ball is on it's way to an open goal when the whistle goes and you can seemingly tackle keepers.

It's entertaining but just a bit lacking, the football manager chaps should release a pared down version on android. I'm sure they could run one of the earlier versions I had on my 486 on an android phone no problem.

Latest Humble Bundle is a go, and features EDGE, Anomoly, World of Goo and Osmos. Each comes with an Android version as well as PC/Mac/Linux.

Have just got round to downloading mine. Galaxy Nexus owners - Osmos HD is playable on the device but all the text is really, really small. Might be worth trying the standard version despite having a high-res screen.

Popular iPhone match puzzler RPG Dungeon Raid has been ported, I notice this morning.

I can confirm, this game is a horribly wonderful addiction of mine. Several minutes/hours/days plugged into this game already, I've lost count!

Also recommended is /ESCAPE\, which is a decent port of the game's Flash counterpart. Meaning it's a bit good.

I'd be happy to stump up 9.99 for a fast pared down port of FM2001 or similar. If that ran fine on my old Pentium then should be a piece of cake for a modern Droid phone. The other thing I'd love with those games would be a time machine mode, so you could start in 1995 say with the Kevin Keegan's classic free-wheeling Newcastle side of yore
