Tablet gaming

When I bought my Nexus 7 the main reason was to replace my laptop/notebook, I never really thought about gaming on the device when the reasoning was taking place about whether to make the purchase. Now I usually spend a few pounds to pick up some titles each month, admittedly a number of them are titles for Little Troll who also enjoys gaming on the Nexus as much as I do (if not more)

As proven on the Apple Store for many people the price tag is a huge part of a games appeal , less than £1 I’m likely to pick it up without a second thought. In fact most games I buy are probably in that price bracket, with a small fraction costing around 2 to 3. The most expensive I bought recently would have been Days of Wonder’s Ticket to Ride app (that finally made the transition from iPad to Android) and Elder Sign.

So I guess I can list myself in the mobile gamer camp, over the last 11 months I have managed an ever growing wishlist on Google Play and keep an open eye for deals. I half wish that Google would employ a feature  similar to Steams wishlist notification service. Although that type of system would surely see me poorer of wallet but richer in games.

Another source for my game has been those offered through Humble Bundle, the installation of which is made easier by their own Android app that downloads the games for you, that said you are offered the ability to download the game packages to install manually should that be more a more preferable option.

There are 2 Humble Bundles running currently, one of them is for Android Games and is worth a look:
