    That site rips off developers in the worst way. Not only do they rip off games and distribute them illegally but they make a profit from it as well. It's bad enough when someone shares a program or a game with people at no charge but when you start profiting from your sketchy behavior it really destroys any argument you might have made (providing people trial use, fair use, etc).

    I won't claim total innocence when it comes to downloading a TV show or maybe a program I want to test out before I buy but I would not feel very good about paying some shady character money in order for him to sell me ripped off software.

    Just my 2c.


    Seriously? I traded my old Touch Pro to a dude off craigslist for an iPod Touch and that thing was loaded with pirated games and apps. He even showed me how to do it if I had wanted to. It was a simple one-click jailbreak and a couple of quick app installs to allow installation from pirated package files that are all over the net.

    iPhone gets better games because until recently it had by far the largest install base of any single mobile platform with decent graphics hardware, not to mention very small hardware set which makes development easier and a simple way to monetize your creations.

    PhoneFraze! Because it gives you a great excuse to invite your friends over and pass it around to everybody. :)

    Glad you like it! It is a whole lot of fun when getting a big circle of people together and a bigger supply of beer... :D

    I like Crusade of Destiny, partly because it looks so pretty on my Evo! :)

    One small addition for any new readers to the thread, make sure you go to the gameloft website on your computer and not on your phone as it will auto detect your phone, BUT! small update to their website does make some games available to your HTC EVO 4G by selecting Sprint and your actual phone model now. Not all the games are available, hopefully soon they will be.

    Edit: @ zwrm1 - I had some problems with my games while I was using a combination of unrevoked, the superuser permissions app, wifi tethering and Overclock CPU Widget. I wasn't able to narrow it down, more like I didn't try to narrow it down I just uninstalled all those apps and my problems went away. Is your phone rooted using unrevoked and are you using any of those apps?

    flukeSG2, we have seen others run into some similar problems with the same setup, but the friend reformatted before we could help him out - luckily it was not a compatibility problem with any of our apps! :)

    It certainly is if you want to discuss it on android forums.

    Linking to pirated material is against the forum rules, as most of you are aware. Please keep your suggestions legal in the future folks.

    I know I might wound like a tool, but NOVA is actually a pretty entertaining game, and runs very well. It is pretty impressive how they implemented purely touch screen controls for a FPS. Ok, I'm a tool.

    Ea Worms and Game Dev Story are as good as it gets. Need for speed works great on my stock evo.

    Top 5 (specifically for Evo, in order)
    1) Need for Speed Shift - This is the driving game I have been dreaming of!
    2) Live Hold'em - Self explanatory, VERY well implemented!
    3) Spaghetti Marshmallow - GREAT on this large screen! Could NOT put it down till I beat it!
    4) Angry Birds - best if phone is rooted and using 'AdFree' app!
    5) 4 Player Reactor - Great option for multi-touch screen multiplayer fun! (coming from a Samsung Moment it is AMAZING to utilize the multitouch).

    Honorable Mentions
    Rocket Bunnies - Pretty cool, smooth, and HUGE (move to SD!) but gets old pretty quick.
    Glyder 2 - Free version combined with root and 'AdFree' app... not bad but gets old pretty quick. Reminds me of 'Pilot Wings' for the N64
    The Sims 3 - Very well done, but not for me.

    Others (for any android phone)
    - Mini Golf Wacky Worlds
    - City Jump
    - Jewels/Sudoku/Solitaire (of course)
    - Mushroom Wars
    - Robo Defense (of course)
    - Tank Hero (must have high end phone)
    - Tank Recon 3D (must have high end phone - I don't have the paid version, can anyone tell me if it's worth it?)

    Just saw a couple games on the news called "Sky Siege" (paid) and "Android Archer" (free). Does anyone have an opinion about them?



    UPDATE: DO NOT bother with Android Archer...
