Whatever your Android device, there are a metric poop load of games for you to play. Here are a few games that may blow your mind, destroy your mind, or just drive you batty.

Minecraft Pocket Addition

Candy Crush Saga
Here’s the part where I tell you about what Candy Crush Saga is and how it plays, but let’s face it, if you don’t know what this game is, or you haven’t’ watched someone play it by now, stop reading this article, and tell your mom that she needs to download it for you.

If you do a lot of waiting around for people or things, this game is also for you.

Angry Birds Space or Angry Birds Star Wars
Either of these titles is bound to be spectacular, because they are birds that are angry, and there are more levels that are
Grand Theft Auto 3
Ten years after GTA3 carjacked the world and caused a moral panic among non-gamers, here’s hoping that many who were appalled then now have it in their pockets and are happily thieving and killing along with the rest of us. Who could resist a mobile death experience?
Prince of Persia Classic
Finally, here’s another old classic given a new lease of life thanks to Android. Beneath its slick new look, this is still the original, much-loved platform from the 1990’s, and no bad haircuts and grunge music. YAY!
So if you want some great games, check the list above. If you want some lame games, go to the Google Play store, download some random game, and don’t listen to me. It’s your choice.
