    It's a tower defense game where you build towers to kill monsters. There are already some other games but they have predefined paths, here monsters want to go from A to B, and the great thing is that you can build your own "maze" as to say, to form their paths and make it harder for them to make it through.

    The game has great graphics, cool features and it's just fun to play.

    There is a free version available in the market and a recently released full version. The full version cost $2.99.

    Gem Miner

    Flash 10.1

    [​IMG]
    I know, I know. This isn't a game, but it opens a whole new world of gaming to the Android Platform. One of the biggest uses of Flash is games and the most popular game right now is Farmville (75 million active users). I've never actually played the game, but I'm familiar with it from all the spam in my Facebook news feed.

    Might be worth putting a section on the emulators here? Possibly a few choice games for each platform too (although someone who downloads the emulator for a system probably does so with a few games in mind)

    Homerun Battle...I'm excited about this game since I've played it on my iTouch. Funny thing is I can't find it in the Android Market for my Samsung Moment. Do I have to wait until Android 2.1?

    Thanks.

    Should I specify which games are not compatible with whichever Android phones out right now?

    Well, I'm guessing from your last post that, if my phone can't see it in the Android Market, its not compatible...?
