Prince of Persia Shadow & Flame - this is epically good! Fantastically looking and great controls clearly designed for a touchscreen rather than adopted from another platform.

Dune 2 - this is a very good port. Unfortunately all it serves to demonstrate is what a leap forward Command & Conquer 1 was. I would recommend fans continue to look back on this with fond memories rather than learn how archaic it actually was by attempting to play it now!

But i's there if you want it. And it's free.

Natural Soccer - a sensible soccer type game. My lack of ability to use a virtual joystick on fast paced games makes me utterly rubbish at this! But it's clearly good and I can't wait for the PC version.

Wow! An actual good RTS has been made. MechCom - 3D RTS

Fairly simplistic but plays very well on a touchscreen.

Giana Sisters has been updated to v2. I dunno what they've done, improved the controls in some way I suspect, but it's a lot better to play now.

Dungeon - a nice puzzle, a substantial amount of which appears to be free. You have a character you have to move from the start to the end of the level by flicking switches, directing laser beams, riding on moving platforms. And you can even add new objects to the level such as switches and choose what the switches do. There's a huge variety of things you can do and many tutorial levels to teach you to do them.

Telekinesis Kyle - a puzzle platformer, again with the aim of moving from one end of the level to the other. In this one you have the ability to move objects around the level to help you reach the end. There's a story behind it with a Portal style 'the people testing you actually want to kill you' feel to it. The first several levels are free with an IAP for the rest.

Dots is now available for Android. Apparently this has been a sensation on iOS. Can't see the appeal myself though i suppose it's good if you only want to play something for a minute or two.

Well, it's certainly a good job mobile devices can run out of battery cause that's the only way to stop playing.

Looks like Trackmania! Gonna have to give that a go. Thanks for the heads up because I typically ignore the racing genre so I would have missed it!

Not only is it amazing it looks superb.
If your phone can handle it raise the gfx setting from medium (which is default) to max.
Close to console quality for 69p

Anyone know how Ashphalt 8 plays on an SII? 7 has some frame rate issues on the SII when it gets pretty heavy going.
