Ikaruga by G-Gee
The Xbox Live Arcade (and more importantly Sega’s Dreamcast) action-shooter Ikaruga is now available on Android for play on the go!

Super Hexagon by Terry Cavanagh
Super Hexagon is an insanely challenging game that’d tempt you to throw your phone or tablet out of the window, and curse profanities at the same time. You play as a triangle with the goal of surviving mazes of geometrical shapes. Hit the oncoming walls and you meet an instant death. If you need to have an idea as to how hard the game is, it starts off on “hard” difficulty. Yeah, no kidding!

Super Knights by Chillingo

Undead Slayer by NHN
In Undead Slayer, you play as a slayer from an ancient Chinese dynasty, stuck in a world infested with zombies and other monsters that you’ll need to kill in order to survive. Played out in a top-down manner, the visuals are solidly rendered, and it is all the impressive that this is made by a one man team. You have 90 stages to play and 20 skills to master as well.
