Games You'll Love Playing In Short Bursts

May 21, 2011

Did you know that Android now is bursting at the seams with more than 200,000 apps, and a lot of them are free? Most of these apps are games that make you think (somewhat) critically, and others require more time to play. We all know that not every one of us can sit in a corner and play these games for hours without having our lives fall apart.

So, we’ve taken the time so you don’t have to! Check out these cool games that do not require critical thinking, or much time to play. If you just want to play a little to kill some time, these games are perfect playing in just a short span of time.

WordFeud existed even before Zynga’s Words With Friends became popular in the Android Market. In fact, it reigned supreme before, and is even still quite popular today. With an estimated 3 million players out there, you will never feel undersized of competition when playing WordFeud. The ability to have 30 games going on at the same time means it’s the perfect game if you only have a few minutes to spare. Unfortunately, it isn’t available for free, but you can still try the free version first.

If you want a sort of “play until you die” game, this game may just be right for you. The gameplay is all about piloting a craft with tilt controls wherein you must avoid obstacles and pick up power-ups through ever-changing colorful, and quite hallucinogenic, tunnels. Plus, there’s some cool beats that play in the background to help you get in the mood.  The game is quite vibrant and works on a wide variety of devices as well. Unfortunatlely, Speedx 3D is not free. Nevertheless, a full free version is available for trials.

There are so many jumping games in the Android Market that feature zombies, ninjas, pandas, and other random stuff.  Abduction itself has produced a sequel and the more extensive World Attack version. However, the original free game is still worth trying first to see if you like and appreciate it, and gives you a lot of fun, quick and casual gameplay. In Abduction, you’re a cute little cow who must climb higher and higher so you can be abducted by a UFO. Simple tilt controls, fun power-ups, and the different levels make this game perfect to play when you only have a few minutes to spare.

This is a sort of “I only have five minutes to play” game. The game is simple. Your aim is to throw crumpled papers into a trash can while being challenge by the fans on either the left or right side that will blow anything to put you out of the game.

The name of the game says it all. It’s purely an air-hockey type game that’s full of glowing colors. Glow Hockey delivers a new style of hockey game. It’s easy to play, but will require a bit of focus and practice to fully master it. Challenge yourself with the computer opponents when you’ve got a few minutes available.
