NiMH's thread has shown me how iOS-saturated this place is.

So... Who else has an Android phone? Any good games you can recommend? Severely lacking rhythm game love minus Tap Tap (total poo IMO, prefer faster-paced games to be on the PC like Flash Flash Revolution) and shoddy games like Finger Dance. Still waiting for that ReRave port, hoping for stuff like Groove Coaster.

Argh. Thanks @rayword45. I'm totally clueless about mobile gaming and admittedly, I've been a bit of a bigot toward the genre. Now that I have a Droid phone, I'm eating my words. Do any members of this fine Nintendo community have any suggestions on some good games with substance I can put on my mobile?

Other genres (I don't use my phone for games much because of the lack, mostly prefer using it for movies and music)

Rhythm Game: ReRave (worth the wait for this to be released). Other then that, Bit.Trip Beat. Personally wouldn't touch Tap Tap with a 9-and-a-half foot pole.
Simulation: Zen Pinball
Platformer: You can find tons, but controls are usually shoddy. Only action-based one I can think of is Gunman Clive
Puzzlers: This is where platformers shine moreso. Karoshi and Toki Tori are both awesome
Visual Novel: Surviving High School (Really cheesy, but not much in the way of VNs anyways)
Strategy: Swords and Soldiers/Bloons Tower Defense 4
Mindless gameplay: Any Bejeweled clone. Screw Rovio.

Hook Champ is on Android. Get it. Now.
It's basically a platformer where you move with a hook. It's fun, addictive, and funny.

Baroque, one of the better Wii RPGs is now on iPad for free download (pay money for the full game etcetc)

Really worth the download. Takes a little tweaking to be comfortable (by default the camera controls are too slow) but once you're there it's as good as the Wii/ PS2 game. Hardcore difficulty, dark setting, action roguelike style. Great stuff.

Didn't see Hook Champ on the Play Store.

I downloaded Jetpack Joyride and Kung Fu Master... Shallow yet fun! I can dig it.

I'm a huge fan of the old Bard's Tale series. After I picked up my iPhone, I hopped on the App Store and saw it was available for download. I picked up the pack that includes the new game as well as the three old ones.

I hear it's also available for Android. Great games imo!

Yeah, it's a brilliant download. Compatible with the 60beat controller, too, which is a nice touch for people who refuse to learn how to use touch controls.

Of course, right when I'm looking for a simple, pick-up-and-play arcadey game, Halfbrick makes their latest brand of crack free. Seriously, those guys really know how to make simple, yet fun and especially charming games, thanks in no small part to their creative use of achievements (well, "missions," actually, since they still have standard achievements for Gamecenter, too), and Jetpack Joyride is no exception. Seriously played this game for, like, 40 minutes straight, which is exceptional for a game of this nature and my usually very short attention span.

BTW, who is Jarvan Zheitk on Gamecenter? I just kicked your record's butt on Jetpack.

Anybody know how EPOCH. is? I'm thinking of giving that a try. I like robots.

Holy crap Real Racing 3 is incredible.

Real Racing 2 on the Retina iPad is literally a stunning title. I'm very disappointed that RR3 went with the F2P model. I was going to track down a preview build, but never got around to it. Do you know if it has a pay to unlock everything option? I flipping hope it does!

@Mickeymac EPOCH is a cool little iOS title, but it isn't great. It's a shooting gallery styled shooter that has you swiping to move from multiple positions and ducking to cover when being fired upon. It's cool, but I would recommend picking it up when it is on sale for $0.99, which just might happen today with it being Valentines Day.

No, it doesn't. The F2P annoys me too, because this is a game worth charging $20 or more for, and it's my honest belief that most people won't spend $20 in in app purchases, too.

I blame EA. not for being 'greedy' or anything so silly, but rather for not having te confidence to charge for this game as a premium-developed game.
