Well, when are you going to create one? I haven't found any killer games for my phone or Kindle Fire that I can't live without.

Did find one good Android game today. "Hey, that's my fish!" Fun game. Cutthroat action. Highly recommended.

It is an adaptation of a boardgame by Fantasy Flight Games. Also available for iOS. Check to see if Android has Elder Sign, Ingenious, and the Arkham Horror Toolkit. All these are from Fantasy Flight Games, and are on the iOS, but I don't know if they put them up for Android quite yet.

I looked about a week ago for games with Cthulhu in them. No dice, though it may take more time for iOS games to hit the Android market.

I need a good Civ-Lite game for the 'Droid.

Preferably a free one

I'm also playing a beta wargame called German Eagle vs Russian Bear. Not a lot of flash but at least it is a wargame. The outfit (DK Simulations) has done a couple others too.

Brant,

Same folks how did Eagle and Bear that I'm playing. No graphics flash, but a decent game. Brings back memories of those old SSI games on the C64 back in the day. I would try German Eagle and Russian Bear first since the beta is free to see if you like the style. Then get the others if the topic is cool.  8)

Just curious how it's worked...

Do they have Civilization Revolutions on the Droid? Not free, but very very good (basically a cross between Civ 2 and 4 on the phone).

I worked with Vic on both those titles. He's great to work for/with. Very willing to hear ideas and yet not get bogged down or side-tracked by well meaning alpha/beta testers.  8)

Small General has turned out quite well for me, especially s something to play while waiting for a kettle to boil.   :)


One thing that confuses me -- sometimes it seems a unit of mine is attacked, not killed, and then enemy units move on top of it and it disappears....?

Let me get my replacement phone in hand (someone at the office knocked mine off the desk and broke the screen, and then never fessed put to it) and I'll see if I can get this on-board and running.
