40 Free and Entertaining Games for Android Phones

40 Free and Entertaining Games for Android Phones
By
Beyond Angry Birds

Many techies know that all versions of Angry Birds (featured in the next three pages) are available for free download on Android. But tons of other games on the Android Market—Google's online store for Android apps—also cost nothing, save for the cost of your data access and the electricity you'll need to keep your phone charged.

What follows are forty games we've tried and found genuinely worth the hours you'll spend on them. Some have been around since the early days of Android, while others are new releases. We're open to suggestions, so if you think we've forgotten to include a great free game or have issues with our selection, let us know in the comments.

    I like Gurk II alot, but have since downloaded an emulator and am playing through all the final fantasy games.

    The simple old-school style RPG works perfectly on a mobile platform I think. You can always put it down without worrying about losing something and they generally have just enough storyline to make you keep coming back.

    I actually enjoyed Drag Racing... Until the last patch where it destroyed all of my profile and forced me to start from scratch (read uninstall). Be warned before you patch it. I lost a quite loaded profile with millions of dollars, thousands of respect points and six loaded cars of various level status from 1 to 10.

    Wow. This sucks. I've had better games on my WM2005 PDA - better graphics AND gameplay. And not a single RPG worth playing - RPGs were awesome on a portable device. Hmm, I wonder if HOMM exists for Android - was like the best thing to kill time... well, pretty much anywhere :D
