While some people are only interested in the communicational potential of their phones, it seems like a bit of a waste to have an amazingly powerful device with a large, brightly coloured screen and not use it for playing games every once in a while.
As chips are getting more powerful and most smartphones come with enough RAM to compete with some of the laptop computers out there, game developers are finding new ways to make use of the amazing platform that they are working with. So, if you like passing your time with an occasional game, or simply need something to do while on the commute or in a waiting room, take a look at our 2013 selection of games for Android.
A part of a successful franchise, Street Outlaws already has a fervent following of people who enjoy fast paced games, relying on their reflexes and skill, and drifting through vivid scenery.

For all of you racers fans out there, the latest game in the Drift Mania series will definitely not disappoint.

If you ever thought about playing Minecraft, that you might find this game quite appealing.

While FPS is perhaps not an ideal genre to try and bring to mobile devices, mostly because the controls and the smaller screens, sometimes the developers do it right and provide you with the excitement and enjoyable game play previously available only on PCs. An immensely popular franchise in this genre, Call of Duty did just that with Strike Team, a game capable of giving you hours of fun and, like all the similar games, quite a bit of frustration.
Even though you probably know what this game is about thanks to the immensely popular first part of the franchise, we’ll tell you that it’s a tower defense game in which you pit a variety of plants and different tools against advancing hordes of zombies.
