10 Great Games For Google's Android

Android

It's said that Google's Android will be overtaking Blackberry by the end of this year!  With a predicted 17.7% of the marketplace, it's now the #2 smartphone operating systems.  With powerful new processors, and incredible screens, it's time to have a look at what is making Android loving geeks pull out their cell phones on the train, bus, or whereever they are.  The Android operating system has a ton of great games.  Even better - it has several great FREE games.  It's only a matter of time before Android Pads are here, too - and it's likely that Google's Android OS will see a lot more game action.

While Android hasn't yet attracted the many releases from companies like Electronic Arts or Ubisoft, several game creators have released some incredible stuff for the Android platform.  Today, let's have a look at some of the best FREE games on Google's Android platform:

Raging Thunder Lite - This racing game has great graphics, and can be controlled either through touch or through the accelerometer.   The Lite version of the app only lets you race around one track, and is hence quite short, but it's an impressive app that'll quickly give you an idea of how powerful the Android operating system really is.  If you have a great Android phone, like the Nexus One or HTC Evo, try out Raging Thunder Lite 2!  It's far more detailed, and plays a bit like Burnout.

Mystique Chapter 1 by Bendroid - This is a 3D horror adventure game, which has you waking up in a bloody bathroom.  You're locked in and you have to find your way out.  It's a point and click adventure, and you combine items to solve puzzles.  The 3D graphics are great for the platform, and the puzzles aren't easy.  The game isn't for everyone - obviously, it has a mature theme, and the game has a slower pace.

SpeedForge 3D - One of the best 3D games on the platform, because there aren't a whole ton of 3D games on Android.  Regardless, the game is a worthy download to show you exactly what the platform is capable of.  In SpeedForge 3D, you're flying a floating car that can shoot weaponry as you pick it up.  If it sounds a bit like WipeOut to you, that's because it IS like WipeOut.  As you can see in the video below, it was a bit hard for me to play through the camera's screen!
