    Cool Some low-spec games?

    I have an HTC Desire C that has a single 600MHz CPU and 512MB RAM, so I can play a very small range of games, Could someone please suggest a list of games I should be able to play smoothly?

    Welcome to Android Central! What kinds of games are you looking for?


    IN CASE YOU'RE WONDERING, I'll be on vacation from 7/27 to 8/13, with only intermittent web access. So if you don't see me around much, don't worry, I didn't defect to another site or anything like that.

    Thanks. Right now I am playing Clash of Clans, Hill Climb Racing and Angry Birds which I really like, and they barely lag. I also have Cut The Rope full free version which doesn't lag, but I don't enjoy the game much. I was looking for an RPG or something like that, but Zenonia 5, though incredibly smooth in the beginning, became laggy after a point in the game.

    I don't have any game recs for you right now, but have you tried doing a system cache partition wipe? This can sometimes speed up performance, and you won't lose any personal data. Follow the steps in this video, but at around 0:50, make sure you select "wipe cache partition." The video is for the Desire, so I'm assuming it'll work for your Desire C.

    Sounds like a nice idea but when I tried getting my phone into bootloader, nothing happens, the phone just switches on. I googled it and found a thread in XDA forums: [GUIDE]Unlocking Bootloader - Desire C {Step-to-Step} - xda-developers which is basically a guide to do the exact same thing, but it says that by "unlocking" bootloader on my phone I will void my warranty. It's a new phone man, have plenty of time before warranty expires, what do I do?

    That's too bad--HTC tends to lock their bootloaders, which is a pain.

    Getting back to your original question, here are some games I like (not all of them free) that should work pretty well on low-spec devices:

    Doom & Destiny: retro, funny, and fun RPG. I got it free when it was the Free App of the Day on Amazon.
    Gunman Clive: fun side-shooter, quirky graphics
    Jones on Fire: 8-bit retro fun
    League of Evil: more 8-bit fun
    Meteor Blitz: nice take on Asteroids
    PewPew: lots of fun, retro vector graphics (can you sense a theme here?)
    Pinball Ride: probably the best pinball game for phones, since it doesn't try to cram a ton of detail in
    Plasma Sky: space shooter, lots of fun
    Pudding Monsters: I enjoy this more than Cut the Rope.
    Quell: very Zen
    Sinister Planet: nice take on Sinistar
    Gyro: warning, can be very addictive.
    Grabatron: alien invasion from the alien's perspective--might not run smoothly.
    Major Mayhem: also might not run smoothly, but worth a try.

    Hope that's a good start!

    You are awesome, man. I was expecting one or two, but you really gave me a lot of games and that too with a mini-review and a Play Store link. Unfortunately, I don't want to pay for mobile games and neither do I want to play free trial versions so that removes a chunk of the list but am getting started with the free ones right away. Much appreciated dude. BTW, yeah I was expecting retro-themed games.
