- 9MM HD
9MM HD from Gameloft is a cross between GTA and Max Payne, you control John Kannon a cop who is battling against a local drug lord. This game also has amazing graphics for a mobile device, the gameplay is pretty good as well with some very minor hiccups. What sets this game apart from the others is the soundtrack if you’re into hip-hop and the slow motion effects a la Max Payne.
Overall we loved this game @ TechHackz, it will take you a couple of hours to finish it (4-5 hrs).
- Riptide GP
Riptide GP is a water racing game created by Vector Unit, this same game developer created Hydro Thunder Hurricane for the Xbox 360 so they’re real water racing specialists!
Riptide GP is a great piece of entertainment with nice water effects, a great physics engine, multiple game modes and tracks. This game is also easy to control and allows you to do tricks in the air while you jump.
You won’t be disappointed. More info @ http://www.vectorunit.com/riptide-gp/
- Samurai II: Vengeance
Samurai II: Vengeance was also created by the folks @ MADFINGER games. In this game you control a samurai (as you have already guessed I am sure) named Daisuke who is hunting down Orochi his evil enemy. This game has very nice cartoonish graphics as you’ll see in the video below, the gameplay is great and it is packed with a lot of action. This one is a winner!

- Asphalt 6: Adrenaline HD
Last but not least we have Asphalt 6: Adrenaline HD also from Gameloft, Asphalt 6 is the latest game in this well-known racing series. This game provides a great racing experience for your Android tablet with console-like graphics, great controls options (tilt or buttons) and a good track variety.
