Line Rider is one of those games that is instantly recognizable by anyone who has had a computer in the past few years. The game has been around on the internet for a while and has recently made it to mobile phones. Android phones have been lucky enough to get a version of the game that is available in the Market for free.

The game features our favorite Android mascot ready to take the plunge of his life into the crazy maze of lines that you create. The game is pretty simple. In fact, it's not really much of a game at all. The whole object is to draw different types of lines, press play, and watch the little guy go careening down your creation. You can make the coolest roller coaster ride known to man or you can just see how far you can make him fall. The choice is all up to you.

The app's controls were fairly simple although there were different tools like the eraser that just didn't seem to work as well as they should. The lines just wouldn't read the input made by my finger. The other large complaint I had was the constant asking for donations by the app. The developer obviously wishes they would have made this a paid game because in the menus and pretty much everywhere else there is a request for money. But still, this is a fun little app. Check it out.
