25p sale has been great, got enough games to last a lifetime now and I finally broke my Coin Dozer addiction :oops:

Has Machinarium been mentioned yet? Absolutely beautiful point and click adventure, already had it on Steam but double dipped on Android.

Also...
Monsters Ate My Condo
Bag It!
Dead Trigger
Dungeon Village (Game Dev Story guys)
Mc Pixel
Canabalt
Another World
Cytus

If you have a spare Wii remote and a classic controller, get Wiimotecontroller to use them with all your emulators.

Meh external controllers and emulators. Feels pointless using that kind of thing on a tablet - extra bulk to carry around and I've got enough to play anyway.

There's a pretty decent Outrun clone called Final Freeway on the Amazon App Store for free today, it made my trip to the **** considerably longer :lol:

Two good Android games I have in heavy play are Flow and Tiny Tower. Flow is a puzzler and Tiny Tower is... hm... I would think it's a sim, basically building a tower and managing the building ops and tenants to keep funds coming in so you can add more to the tower:)

Will give it a go when I'm able to test in the refund window :awe:

anth wrote:So either you use the virtual d-pad and block your ship with your thumb or you use the non-responsive touch controls. Yeah, no way to win here. Basically a mediocre shmup that's virtually unplayable. There were much better on the Neo Geo. Come on SNK. Get to it. Update: Controls have improved, but still aren't nearly tight enough. If the controls were perfect, this would be a four star game.


Wouldn't even bother testing, tbh.

Riptide GP 2 is phenomenally good, and discounted at the moment.

Cheers, I'll give it a try.

Danmaku Unlimited 2 is great fun too, on the harder difficulty levels. ;)

Last night I got the brilliant idea to buy a turn based PS One game for our Sony Tablet S, but could not, because the lovely folks at Sony decided to remove Playstation support from their own tablet with an update (yet the free copy of Crash Bandicoot that came preinstalled still works!).

So, can anyone recommend any fun turn based Android titles? RPGs with only turn based combat are fine too.

Great Big War Game is very good. Let me know if it supports cloud saving nowaday, as I lost interest in it a while ago when I lost my save file.
