Android – Four Free Games to Waste Time With

1.  Stupid Zombies (Gameresort)

At first glance, you’re going to think “damn…this is just Angry Birds, but with zombies”.  And you’d be dead (pun definitely intended) wrong.

The goal is simple – kill all the zombies on each level before you run out of bullets.  You get bonus points for how many bullets you have left over after each level, which rates your performance with 1-3 stars.  If you find the right angle to fire your bullet, you’ll likely be able to take out all the zombies in one fell swoop (err…shot) as it ricochets around the screen.

Later levels become more complex with barriers, explosive barrels, and numerous other objects to aid (or hinder) you in your quest to save the world from the undead.

Very bloody.  Very addicting.

2.  Slice It! (Com2uS)

A piece of graph paper, some pencils, and a shape.  Doesn’t sound very fun, does it?  Don’t be fooled.  You’ll soon be sucked into this clever puzzler.

It starts out fairly simple.  You might be asked to cut a circle into eight equal slices using four pencils (like a pizza…duh).  Then you’re asked to make twelve equally sized shapes (from the image on the right)  using five pencils with those red barriers in your way.  Not so simple now, is it?  Luckily, Slice It! has a nice little hint system in place to aid you when you get stuck.

Slice It! comes with about 180 levels of time-wasting pleasure and a decent amount of replay value.

3.  Words With Friends (Zynga)

The title is a little misleading.  The second you start playing this game your “friends” quickly become your enemies and your spouse will start sending you snarky text messages.

A simple Scrabble (TM) clone with turn-based gameplay.  One of the coolest features is that you can run TWENTY games simultaneously with different people.  It features in-game messaging with push notifications that alert you when it’s your turn to come up with another brilliant four-letter word.

4. Robo Defense (Lupis Labs Software)

I’m not a huge “tower defense” guy, but Robo Defense is a pretty decent take on the genre.  If you’ve played any tower defense game before, you should find it very easy to learn and get into.

It features a fairly fluid control scheme, decent graphics, and a nice experience point system that will allow you to upgrade certain towers/abilities as you play.

The only huge gripe I have about it is the sound.  Dear god…the sounds is quite horrible.  It makes fingernails on a chalkboard sound like the New York Philharmonic.
