I'm new to Android gaming and currently all addicted to Temple Run and Angry Birds.
I'm looking for cool free games to try out on my smartphone, any suggestions?

Not free, but the most enjoyable game on Android I've played for years is the Carmageddon port.

Loads of fun. :)

I recently switched from iOS to a Galaxy s4, I owned the very first Motorola DROID before I switched to iOS so I knew what I was getting in to and was fine with it, but I really, truly expected there would be a whole lot more decent games on Android. It really is a true mess. And there are a whole lot of crapware games as well (games that just seem to exist to showcase ads for other bad games), so I have to say I am pretty disappointed overall so far with the selection. Luckily I do not just own my phone for gaming, but if I did, I would be pretty disappointed indeed.

With that said, the games I enjoy the most, and think make sense from a touch screen perspective are...
  • Candy Crush Saga
  • Vector (awesome parkour game in style of Canabalt)
  • Chimpact
  • Zombies & Trains
  • Angry Birds Star Wars
  • Angry Birds Space
  • Fruit Ninja
  • Jetpack Joyride
  • Super Stickman Golf 2
  • Plasma Sky
  • Can Knockdown 3

Rayman Jungle Run is really amazing! It looks brilliant, is a lot of fun and they add content regularly.

The GTA 3/4 remakes are fun, I also like Order and Chaos, Avabel, Ragnarok Online Valkyrie. Don't really play a tonne of games on my phone.

Have to admit Valkyrie Crusade - mix of the card battles (with complex level up system), campaign exploration / duals, and town creation, resource building / management.
For F2P with cash shop, so far is fun without feeling like you need to buy stuff.

No problem. That is one of my favorites as well.

I found a new game that may very well be my favorite Android game so far.
Whale Trail Classic

You can apparently download a free ad supported version of it called Whale Trail Frenzy.

I outright purchased it, even though it was $2.99 and I never played it, and so glad I did. I really enjoyed a game called Tiny Wings on my iPhone and could not really find a similar game to it on Android. Well Whale Trail is that game and so much more.

I happen to think the most minimal of control schemes work best on a phone (of course without a controller hooked up, etc.) So when a game can create great gameplay with just one "button," to me they have done things very right. Whale Trail really is an amazing game. Super addictive. Looks fantastic. Really well done 70's cartoon inspired music. Just the whole package.

Definitely recommend at least checking out the free version.

Another game I think is a great single button game and I did not realize they had an Android version is Ski Safari. Another great mobile game, for sure.

I've just checked my phone, and I have 20 games there. I can't remember the last time I touched any of them. I even downloaded Carmageddon when it was free, but I haven't even opened it. :laugh:
