Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.

85% of Today Calendar Pro’s users are pirates, and the dev has a very interesting plan to change that

  1. Would it be wrong to ask for lists like these to exclude any “freemium” titles? Maybe that’s impossible these days. Developers can be quite greedy. I miss games like Real Racing 2. FULL games with ONE price. Heaven.

    Mobile gaming can be so much better than it is now.

  2. Galaxy Trucker on Android? I need that.

    1. I picked it up a few days ago, and it is pretty sweet. It’s a must-have if you’re a fan of the board game,

  3. RPG clicker is the game I have been playing lately. It’s quite fun and is a different take on your normal rpg gameplay. The dev is going to be adding new levels soon too

  4. I’ve been playing crusader quest. It’s pretty fun if you like grinding like Diablo 3

  5. Does anyone really game seriously on their device anymore?

    1. Why else would I have bought a tablet?

  6. Oh kids these days… ‘Crossy Road’? Don’t you mean Frogger?

  7. DQ 5 is, by far, the best in that list, the price is very good taking into account that Cloud Saving comes out of the box and it doesn’t require full internet connection when playing

  8. Few good games there.
