It's Friday and that means it is time for another end-of-the-week round-up of Android games that are currently on sale over on Google Play and Amazon's Appstore.

Google Play has many different nicknames for it, with one of the more popular ones being that it is the 'Wild West' of games and applications.

Games that get denied by Apple usually make an appearance on Google Play.
