I never play games on my N7, but my 11 year old niece claims to be expert in this area and she recommends:

Polara
Temple Run (also Temple Run Brave)
Going Nuts
Jetpack Joyride
Plumber Crack

But you don't say if you are an 11 year old girl, so your tastes may differ :-)

Wtf.

I like the Sonic The Hedgehog games (my wee lad does so I have no choice really). They're on sale at the moment too.

The avatar makes sense now. Looked at buying one of them before when it was on sale but the graphics looked terrible in the pics. What do you think?

Never had an issue with the graphics, they're obviously not up to current console standards, but ok for a mobile game. They're a bit of a nostalgia kick for me more than anything else.

I'll throw some in there that haven't been mentioned.

Zen pinball HD (only one free table but fun if you like pinball)
CS Portable (Cs 1.6 nostalgia and the best multiplayer fps I've seen on android)
Major Mayhem
Plague Inc
Agent Dash
Osmos HD (free campaign is short tho)


... I uninstalled plumber crack after coming to the realization that it's quite awful
Was entertaining for a while tho.

Gave Nun Attack a try and it is indeed awesome.
Also found this during a search, if you like tower defense games and the movie Army of Darkness, then you'll love this.

Good one, it was made by the studio that did Horn. Dark Meadow is something special tho, the combat is a bit dull but the story and graphics are great

I can't believe Crazy Taxi hasn't been released yet. They said in October, soming to iOS and Android, came out in October for iOS, still waiting for the Android version. I love that game. That being said

Dead Trigger
Dead Space
GTA III
GTA Vice City
Max Payne
Modern Combat 4

all great games.

You should try Temple Run II, the new version really takes the most advantages of the CPU and graphic of the N7, there is a new setting allowing you to define the image quality of the game, the highest setting will give you a lot of details but it will consume more battery.

Another game, the Air Navy Fighter also has a great 3D flight simulation engine.
