Figured I'd start a thread about gaming recommendations for Android. Some of these overlap with iOS as well. I'll start with a game that has already been mentioned elsewhere: Pitfall. It really isn't anything like the original game, but if you like these running games, you'll enjoy this version of Pitfall.
Thanks, it's nice to pad this small (but hopefully in the future), slowly growing section of this site. Unfortunately I can't add to it myself due to not having a Droid (and not the ones others are looking for, sj ).
Is Another World just a port, or does it have some bonus/new stuff in it? From some screenshots I saw it looks like the Genesis version.
My cell phone is a Samsung Galaxy S, which uses the Android OS. While I've had many complaints about its reliability over the past two years, it does handle apps reasonably well, and out of all my apps on the phone, my favorite one is Draw Something. I play it with friends and family, and I absolutely love the idea of a Pictionary-type game that can be played at the user's own pace. I'll forgo a detailed review of the app, as I'm sure most of you are familiar with the premise. Besides, I think a picture would illustrate my point better, so I've included some snapshots below (click to enlarge) that were taken from my phone.
That looks like a fun app. Insofar as the phone, the Galaxy line has become one of the best phones in the market. Samsung has done a great job evolving that line. The Galaxy S III is a top seller phone today. It is remarkable how much smartphones have changed in two years!

I hope so. At times, mine will inexplicably freeze in the middle of a process like Draw Something, and I'll need to remove the battery to reset the device. This is inconvenient, but at least I'm in control of the reset function; if I'm having an unlucky day, the phone will reset itself, even if the battery is fully charged. On rare occasions, the screen will not register my touch commands properly; this is especially evident in the text message tree, where a press of the J key, for example, will sometimes put out an H or K. It takes long enough for my message tree to load up that minor vexations like the one described become infuriating. The phone does handle apps fairly well, though, and the battery life, which used to be my greatest complaint, has improved since I performed a factory reset several months ago. Overall, I'm happy to have the phone, but I don't imagine that we'll ever come to a point when smart phones become as reliable as the standard clamshells that preceded them.
Smartphones have evolved quite a bit. Current (as in, 2012 released) smartphones have fewer of those glitches as the OS's have matured. I have an HTC Thunderbolt that is showing its age because it was one of the last single-core phones that were released two years ago. As soon as my contract expires (next March), I'm jumping to an Nexus 4! Now, that is a beast of a phone.
