Tap That App: Free games for Android phones

2:18 /

Since you'll be hard pressed to find any 99-cent games in the Android Marketplace, these free ones will hold you over, and are the most compatible across all phones.

^M00:00:00 [ Music ] ^M00:00:09 >>Oh, oh, welcome to Tap That App, I'm Brian Tong and this is the show where we cover the hottest apps in the mobile space. Now, this week we're showing games for Android. Earlier we did a $.99 games for the iPhone platform but there really aren't many $.99 games in the Android market place so we're going to find out the best free games that are more than demos for paid games. And honestly, the free games are probably the ones that will work the best across all the different Android phones out there. So, first up is Bonsai Blast. The idea here is to shoot colored bubbles at a moving chain. When you get three in a row it breaks the chain and you can move the shooter around; there's other bonuses and it's a good one. Now, we love Doodle Jump on the iPhone but its $3.99 on Android so check out the free game called Abduction. You're a cow, your heard has been abducted and using the accelerometer it's up to you to reach the top where a UFO has taken your friends. Now, if you want a retro old school feel, checkout Radiant. This games pays homage to space invaders, you have power-ups and you have asteroids and space aliens to destroy and it's a smooth running time waster. There's also Bejeweled on Android but it has performance issues and its $4.99 so checkout Jewels which is free. You swipe to create chains of jewels that break and you'll also be able to post your score to a global leader board. Now, if you want a tower defense game, you'll want to take a look at Robo Defense. The free version goes up to 10 levels and you'll need to prevent enemies from crossing the screen. Place your different defense towers down and upgrade them as well. And finally, Paper Toss is one of our favorites and it made it to Android. Flick paper balls into a garbage can while a fan blows at different speeds and it's probably one of the most addicting games of this group but if I had to choose my favorite out of the bunch, I'm probably going to have to pick Radiant and Robo Defense but all these apps are free and that alone makes them tap worthy. Now, if you have any apps you'd like us to check out or a theme for a show, send us your suggestions to TapThatApp@CNET.com. I'm Brian Tong and we'll see you guys next time. ^M00:02:10 [ Music ] ^M00:02:17
