    Hi guys!

    Intro
    As many of you know, I do the best apps and games lists on Android Authority and I wanted a sort of table of contents. I thought, why not the forums? Below is every app list / game list I've ever written (which will be updated with more as I publish more).

    Requests
    The other purpose for this thread are requests. I'll reach a point where I'll simply run out of ideas for apps and game lists to write about. If there's one you want me to do, don't be shy! I love Android apps and games and every request is just another opportunity for me to dig deeper into the Google Play Store.

    *Note* the titles are clickable links that go to the article.
    *Protip* if you're looking for something in particular, use CTRL+F (CMD+F for you Mac users) and type in the keyword. If you don't see it, ask me to write it!

    Thread navigation:
    1. General Applications
    2. Games
    3. Android Wear and Android TV

    Asus memo pad 8
    Hello I'm new to the smart technology and Android. I just got a Asus MeMO pad 8 this last October and love it. I won't a consal system some day but hell am loving the android app store games like room 1$ the bards tale 2$. Just great games graphics game play all the bells and whistles. I just bought the skyturns at the app store this past week and am loving it. It's new and has not got any looks yet. I posted my thoughts at metacrit when I bought the game for $2.02. So being new, don't know if you review or what but this is great. I to love the android games so I will be enjoying learning more about a fellow gamers thoughts about the games out there for us to play. So you get a sec check it out see what you think. Be really cool to see what a person with a following thinks about the game. Again it's Skyturns at the app store a 3D run and jump platform game. Very simple and fun. Well look forward to checking out your stuff thinks for your time and happy holiday weekend.

    @Joe Hindy maybe Offline Multiplayer games? Like air hockey or chain reaction? Cause I just feel like when people go camping and there's almost no internet, they would like something to do together.

    Asphalt 8: Airborne is our favorite racing game on mobile right now. It skips all pretensions of realism and provides an over-the-top, high-octane game with all the fixings. Players can work their way through the career mode, unlock new rides, upgrade the ones they have, or take the competition online in staggered or live multiplayer. The usual race modes are there, plus a new Infected one where players have to tag other racers before succumbing to an explosive virus.

    Hey @johnsmike
    Asphalt 8 is the best game though it's not compatible with all the android devices due to it's graphics and resolution. For high end mobiles, i stand with you. But when coming to low end mobiles it's not worth of other games. :rolleyes:
