Android Apps for the Casual Gamer

May 19, 2010

Let’s get one thing clear, the terms “gamer” and “geek” are not mutually exclusive. In fact, I haven’t seriously tried to beat a game since Secret of Mana for the SNES (AKA the greatest game ever made). Still, sometimes I’ve got some time to kill and that’s where these basic, but fun, Android apps come in handy.


This is THE game for the casual gamer. This app actually is 4 versions of solitaire in one: regular, spider, freecell, and forty thieves. No thumb dexterity required for this one.



The object is simple, fill the entire screen with one color in the allotted amount of moves. With six colors to choose from and boards with up-to 35×35 panels, the casual gamer can enjoy this one over and over again. Try and beat your lowest score for maximum re-playability .


Slide Puzzle

This game is based on the classic kids toy. Take a picture, slice it into panels, mix them up, then try to put it back together. This app is a lot of fun and has some great features like choosing your panel size (3×3 – 8×8), high score tracking, and the ability to customize the puzzle picture.



This is an awesome (and free!) Bejewled port that looks great on the Android. Very simple game mechanics, good graphics and sound effects will give hours of gameplay to the casual gamer.


Totemo Free

This is probably the most game-esque game on my list. The gameplay itself is a simple (in concept) matching puzzler, but the real reason I love it is because of the graphics. It really is a beautiful looking game. The free version gets you 12 levels, perfect for the casual gamer, but over 60 are included in the full version for you hardcore types.
