    Default Games on your Acer A500?

    So what games are you guys playing/enjoyingon your Acer? Has anyone tried the games already installed, as i've been having to much fun dng other things on my tablet and haven't gotten around to look at them.

    I bought the Riptide GP game because I loved hydro thunder.
    The price on it is a bit more than us Androidians are used to, but wow. This game really showcases the power of our tablets. I kept coming in last because I was looking at the environment and marvelling at how gorgeous it looks. The gameplay is pretty fun, tilting your tablet to turn and such. We do need more high quality devs for Android so why not support them. IMO well worth it, it's console quality for a fraction of the console price.

    Other game i've been indulging in is Robotek from Hexage (Radiant, Evac). Game play can get repetitive but hey its free and sticks to Hexages eye catching color usage and fitting ambience music. I went ahead and gave them 3 bucks (option to give 1, 2, 3 bucks anc gives you a few little extra features as a thanks from them). I did this because I love Hexage and their continued support of Android. They release their games on Android first before iOS and Win7. A great dev that does this deserves my donation money.

    Haven't tried the Gameloft games yet, maybe someone else has and can shed a little light on it.

    I'm still addicted to Angry Birds, Need for Speed is just ok, and of course I started Plants vs Zombies -free from Amazon today.

    Dungeon defenders, plants vs zombies, some angry birds, and I agree with c.hack, need for speed is okay. Picked up gun bros, and it's meh. Very repetitive without much incentive to keep going after a while.

    Does anyone know of any good RPGs to play?

    Call me old school but I've mostly been playing my Snes and Genesis games using the recently removed emulators. Can't wait for usb support to be expanded with 3.1 so I can use my Xbox controller.

    Tabs are a way better form factor for emulation than phones, IMHO.

    Air Attack HD and Fruit Ninja work well. I haven't installed Angry Birds on my Iconia because I'm honestly kind of over Angry birds-
    Enjoy every day.

    My kids play angry birds and I'm hooked on plants vs zombies. I also have several games going on words with friends.

    They used to be on the market but theyve been removed, ill put them in my dropbox for ya tomorrow.

    I have to recommend Battleheart. Its an RTS based game with RPG elements. The dev is really cool, too.That one is in the market and Tablet optimized.

    I've gone ULTRA old school! I downloaded BlowTorch and returned to MUDing. ahh... the good old days. I'm trying to get into Vendetta Online, but it's not clicking with me. Pocket Legends isn't bad, but gets repetitive really quick.

    If you like old school RPG try Gurk it is free in the market then if you like it buy Gurk II it is a much bigger game with more options.

    Have you tried the wiimote controller app yet? This way your wireless and I think you can use the classic controller with it. Combine that with your HDMI mirroring and you have yourself a portable gaming system.

    I've played a bit of Cut the Rope and Angry Birds. Both looked great and play as they should.
