Mobile Monday

JohnBA little alchemy to go with your high-speed car drive out of town? Maybe you're more the brainy type. You know, the kind that goes to space with other cosmonauts, vacuums the shuttle while some all-powerful being guides you to the surface of alien planets. Either way, we've got you covered. Provided "covering" you means providing you with Android games. Which, well, that's how we meant it, so... there!

Use a barcode scanning app to scan the QR codes and start downloading the games to your phone. We also recommend AppBrain, a wonderful program that integrates app browsing/installation across web browsers and your phone!

flee.jpgFlee - Were you one of those lucky kids who had a cool handheld LCD game back in the day? Now we're all the lucky kids, thanks to the nostalgically-minded folks at Frugal Games. Flee is a deliciously old-school arcade style of game that emulates the look and feel of those classic gaming systems, recreating not only the design, but incorporating little touches like pressing on the screen to get a peek at the graphics underneath. Two modes of play allow you to be a car avoiding obstacles or obstacles avoiding the car, and over 30 levels of play give you plenty of challenge to deal with. A full 20 song soundtrack is extra special icing on the cake, and you can even view the full manual from the title screen, which should definitely bring back some memories! The QR code on the left is for the full version, the one on the right is for Flee Lite.

alchemyclassic.jpgAlchemy Classic - Similar to Doodle God, Alchemy Classic is (apparently) based on an old MS-DOS game. Alchemy works exactly like you would expect it to, with a simple drag-and-combine interface that makes it easy to experiment and try theories. Tap the icons at the top of the screen to clear the board, undo your last combination, see created elements along with elements you can create with your current outfit, and go to the element adding menu where you can choose icons to drop on the playing field. Double tap any element to clone it, and double tap an empty part of the screen to spawn fire, earth, air, and water. Simply drag elements onto each other to try combining them. If they can mix, they will, and your new element is born. It's all about experimenting, and it's every bit as captivating as you think it would be. Hundreds of combinations are possible!

gravitylander.jpgGravity Lander - Three cosmonauts are on a mission to clean up debris cluttering the Mars base. To help them land on the red block, you must remove girders and tilt your phone to shift gravity in the proper direction. It's never as easy as it sounds, and if the rocket doesn't land just right, the three astronauts won't be able to eat their tinned beans anymore. A browser version of the game is available if you want to get a taste of rocketship landing before firing up your phone. Note: Gravity Lander requires Adobe Air, available from Google Play Android Games, and is only compatible with Android 2.2.

memorytrainer.jpgMy Personal Memory Trainer - No one would be surprised to know that brain training games have become something of an item in the last several years. My Personal Memory Trainer is a great-looking brain game that features twenty different sessions with a mix of games that test your spatial and working memory, focus, chunking and concentration skills. In practice, this means you'll be playing simple memory games, working with numbers, and practicing recall skills. Memory Trainer doesn't break the bank when it comes to features or visual impact, but it has a smart interface that lets you choose workouts and even track your progress. While the actual science behind brain training is still up for debate, Memory Trainer is still a good game that will get the gray matter buzzing.

NOTE: Games listed may not be available outside of North America. Prices are subject to change and are therefore unlisted. Please see the individual game pages for purchasing info. Games have been confirmed to run on Android 2.2 on an HTC Incredible.

Alchemy is awesome! It really was an old MS-DOS game, I used to play it back in the day. It's still out there for download actually on the game's website http://cstein.kings.cam.ac.uk/alchemy/

Hi! This is Nacho from Frugal Games.
I'd like to point that Flee Lite has indeed an 8 song soundtrack, but the paid version comes with a mind-blowing 20 song soundtrack from the best Creative Commons talents.
Thanks for featuring our game!

There is already an excellent game called "Alchemy" for android. And it's not only the title that's the same, the game is also similar. The free "lite" edition can be downloaded free from the Market (and i guess the pay full version also, we don't yet have the pay Market here in Hungary).
