    "I was tired of the basic Android games on my phone and knew that an arcade game would be a lot of fun. Super Hexagon has been the best game to play. Maneuvering takes some skill and the graphics are nostalgic, I find it very enjoyable."

    "Last week I was looking for the best arcade games for Android. During my search I found Crazy Taxi. I remember playing this game on the Sega Dreamcast and it was a blast back then. The Android version is a little clunky and a challenge to control on the phone screen. Another complaint I have is the classic songs that I remember hearing in the original are no longer there. I guess they lost the licensing for those music tracks but the music was one of my favorite parts of the game. "

    "A cool flight simulator if you're a fan of WWII combat like I am. These days it's becoming more difficult finding WWII-themed games as modern combat becomes more popular, but this is a really fun game that features most of the famous and important fighters of WWII and lets you take control of them in intense dogfights. Graphics could be better but it's a good game for what it is."
