Is there a WarioWare Twisted-like Game for Android?

    My favorite GBA games were the WarioWare ones where it was a bunch of simple 10-20 second games. Twisted had an accelerometer in the game cartridge and as far as I know as the first handheld game to use an acceleromertor like that. While there are a bunch of single games that would be longer (time-wise) versions of 1 mini-game on WarioWare available for Android, I'm wondering if there's a game more like WW that has a bunch of those 10-20 second mini-games that use the phones accelerometer.

    Any suggestions (if there is actually one) would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    ps - I already have Gameboid but because it's based on the Gameboid controllers, WariorWare Twisted itself doesn't work on it at all, so already tried that route. :)

    Try the other Wario Ware on the GBA emulator. It doesn't use accelerometer, but it is definitely one of my favorite emulated games on my phone. The controls work great! :)

    Games for Robots it's called, it's free, not played it myself so can't comment on the quality, but the average rating is four stars :)

    Thanks for the recommendation, I tried it out. It doesn't use the accelerometer, just the touch screen. The games were fun, but there were probably only about 25 of them, but the author said he was adding more. The controls were a tad unresponsive at times, but overall, it is a great game! 4/5*

    Thanks for the tips so far. I had already downloaded the original WarioWare that just uses the buttons for my emulator and yes it's fun, but not near as fun as WarioWare Twisted using the accelerometer! And since this phone has one, I'm surprised there aren't more games like WarioWare Twisted being developed, because for every 1 person who will actually use their phone to play "real" long games, there's probably 50 who aren't really "gamers", but would play something that just had easy quick micro games like this.

    Maybe I should hook up with someone to develop one myself. If only I had the knowledge to do such things! :)

    Anyway, thanks for all the input and I'll try that Robots one.

    Games for Robots is now renamed Pixel Chaos and is a good game albeit short.
