I love a good puzzle game for Android. What I love even more than that though is a puzzle game that’s free to try. The concept here is super simple: there are fruits of different colors on a wheel you can spin to match them up with a plate of the same color. Sounds pretty easy right? Well, as the game adds in more wheels to spin with more fruits on them, you’ll definitely find a good challenge here. The challenge is not only to match up all the colors, but also to match them in the least amount of moves. If I was forced to come up with some negatives about the game, I would prefer to be able to change the cartoonish looking fruit to something else. There is also only one static background for every level and no sound. Though there is nothing fancy happening here graphics wise, this also leads to the game being ultra smooth. If you’re looking for a brain twister and a good time waster, Revolutionizer should be next on your list. If you enjoy the free version you can go ahead and grab the full version with more levels for $.99. Check out the screenshots and game video after the break and let us know what you think.

Oh Amazon, I love it when you give me games like Eve Of Genesis for free. I am an old “Final Fantasy Junkie.” It has been a while since I have seen or played a game that reminds me so well, of “Final Fantasy.” The game opens with you getting a back story about how humans were beaten by the machines (golems) some 2000 years ago. Well we all know how things go from there.
One adventures girl is determined to find out if the rumors of the machines attacking humans are true. Of course it’s up to your character to go after her. In doing so you discover that the rumors are true, and the human race is in danger once again. Check out the screen shots and the rest of my review after the break.
If you’re like me, you love the thrill of Black Friday. It can be overwhelming, but thanks to TGI Black Friday, your planning will be simplified. Upon opening the app, you will see what the hottest items are, but you can also sort ads by individual store, download PDF ad scans, or search for whatever you are looking for. You can even create your own shopping lists, and for those of you that love to share, you can via Facebook, Twitter, or Google+. TGI Black Friday is super easy to use. Check out my quick hands on video and hit one of the links below to download it for free from the Android Market.
Hungry Shark 3, there was two other versions of this game? Anyways, Amazon’s free app today is Hungry Shark 3, basically a “Jaws gets revenge” game. The game uses your devices accelerometer to control, that’s right, a hungry shark. You eat everything; people, fish, and even other sharks. You have to keep eating while looking for the exit or you will die.
I didn’t play much of it before I had my opinion on it. It’s free today so I encourage all of you to check it out while it is, however this is not a game I would spend the $4.99 usual price on. Maybe there is some cooler levels in the game, but it’s definitely not a game worth 5 bucks. I don’t even want it for free, this was a quick uninstall folks. Check out the images after the break as well as the download link if you dare.
Today, Amazon’s free app of the day is, Lets Bowl, a decent game with great graphics and easy gameplay. I am not going to spend much time going over it as this is one of the bowling games that we have reviewed in the past. To get a comparison against other similar games, check out our other bowling game reviews for PBA Bowling 2 and 3D Bowling.
When playing the game I notice that there isn’t much control over placing spin on the ball and sometimes ball travel seems very unrealistic. I don’t think that this is one of those in depth physics based games but rather something you can play to kill a few minutes of spare time. Hit the source link below to get the free download but be sure that you already have the Amazon Appstore installed on your device, if not, read up on our quick tips page to learn how.

Today Craneballs Studios, LLC released SuperRope to the Android world. It already has a successful track record with iOS as over 2 million people have downloaded it and rated it at 4.5 stars.
The premise is simple – Jump from rope to rope to see how high you can climb. Along the way you will collect as many coins, diamonds, and other bonuses as you can. Of course there are items falling from the sky that you need to avoid, like pianos, anvils, and evil robots. Last but not least, you can get help by grabbing helicopters, magnets, and little rockets.
First off, I love games like this. I have X Construct, which is a same style game and made nicely, but Wooden Bridges is by far the hands down winner for me. In Wooden Bridge you’re asked to build bridges to get the car or train across the gap. The game gives you a set number of wood planks to use, and you have to create a solid bridge. If the bridge is strong enough the vehicle makes it across. If it’s not strong enough however, gravity kicks in (well the computer simulated gravity anyways) and the vehicle falls and you must rebuild your bridge.
What totally hit this home for me is, the developers thought outside the box and gave us a level right away that asks you to make the car jump the gap. OK, so maybe I’m a little to happy about this, but it is an interesting new take on bridge style games. How many of these games can they make before we are no longer interested in just building bridges? Answer: Not very many.

Amazon has done it again with another very good selection for their free app of the day. 3D Bio Ball HD is an awesome throw back of Marble Madness for me. As a kid I loved that game, and now that I am older it is really nice to see a game like 3D Bio Ball HD. Now even though this game is different from Marble Madness on the old NES. It is one of the better labyrinth-style games on the Android platform.
The game opens up with your choice of campaign or quick play mode. I suggest you start with campaign mode as it gives you the much needed tutorial as well as the story line of the game. I use traverse the playing field, you are given objects to collect like; bolts and coins that can later be used in the shop to upgrade your Bio Ball. As with all labyrinth-style games there are obstacles to watch out for and I’m not just talking about holes in the floor, they got creative on this one! Check out the images after the break.
We here at TalkAndoid are often approached by developers with hopes that we will review their latest apps. I recently looked at the growing list and thought I would randomly check one out. A game called Toon Ball caught my eye with its quirky art and goofy looking camel.
After downloading the game I noticed that the camel really has nothing to do with game play and is just used as background art (and, in my case, successful advertising!). The mission of the game is to get the ball to roll past obstacles and traps by altering the path it takes. Relying on gravity, the ball rolls from the starting point once you initiate movement by breaking a wooden block or other object that is keeping the ball at rest. As soon as it’s off and rolling you have to act quick in order to complete your next move to keep the momentum going. Once the ball is static you have to start the level over.
Amazon’s free app today is an entertainment app only. Ghost Radar uses the phones sensors to measure the electric magnetic fields around you. It features a radar image that shows you different color dots on the screen that represent possible nearby ghosts. Every so often it will give you a word. Some of them are random and others have made the hair on my arms stand up.
I downloaded it this morning around 2am, and it was a little creepy hearing words like “coming” and “attack” in the total dark. I’ve been playing with it more this morning and it doesn’t seem to have the same creepy effect as it does in the dark.
Even though this is for entertainment purposes only, it is defiantly an app that you could (and should) trick your friends with Halloween right around the corner. Especially if you have one of those easy to scare friends. Cause everyone knows scaring people is what Halloween is all about. (oh and candy too)
Check out these screen shots to see the look of the app.
If you’re not using the App Store, you can grab the download here by entering your email address or phone number in the upper right hand corner for a download link. Be sure to have the “unknown sources” box checked off under Settings—>Applications on your Android device.
You can also find Ghost Radar here. For an app that will usually run you $0.99, it is worth the money for a good laugh and maybe it will make your hair rise too. Today would be even better to get it while it is free.
