Android games...

So, here I am playing with my new toy and keeping out of SWMBO's way Wink
I've downloaded the usual games I play; Scrabble, Sudoku, a Word puzzle but am wondering if there are any, preferably free (spent too much already), racing car games worth trying out on the 8" tablet for a bit of fun. Maybe even a snooker game.
There are loads listed so, again, I'm looking for recommendations.
Shame there isn't an Android or just a non-windows board but that's been discussed before, I think Wink

Re: Android games...

I don't play many games, but one of my favourites is 7x7 (free), a simple concept but can become addictive Smiley

Re: Android games...

Go to Amazon and get the free amazon android app, everyday they offer a free (paid) app sometimes games sometimes utils.
I got Moonshine runner off them last year great game for a laugh.
If you use the app, it will download and install directly on to the tablet, or if you go via the web site you have to side load it.

Re: Android games...

and if you want some fun get bluestacks on your desktop which also gives you some paid apps for free in its spotlight list that changes every day
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

Re: Android games...

Here's one that's very addictive, and the music with it is great.
Not racing, not tactical not even a shoot em up...but a combination of all three.
An adrenalin rush too.

Re: Android games...

I've just  downloaded Smashhit and had a quick play (not yet read the instructions, though) and I can see how it can be addictive.
I've also downloaded Real Racing 3 and GT Racing 2. Both seem good fun having had a quick try.
There was an Amazon app but I uninstalled it with a load of other apps which I didn't want at the time Cheesy

Re: Android games...

2048 is quite addictive Tongue
Piano Tiles is quite good too, haha basically scrolling tiles, you're not allowed to press the white ones, it scrolls faster as you go! (My current high score is 695!) on Arcade -> Normal mode and about 500 on Arcade -> Faster mode Smiley
Also, 8 ball pool is good as is "Move"
On the topic of Android, and Gaming, Google Play's adverts after every few goes at a game are SO ANNOYING!
