    Your Android device does not have to be used strictly for productivity or communication. It also has plenty of potential in the way of entertainment, particularly with gaming. The Android Market is loaded with games for you to master, but here are a couple of its best selections that you may want to try first.

    Angry Birds


    Even before you had your Android device in your hands, you probably heard of the buzz surrounding Angry Birds. After all, it was a hit on the iPhone, so when it finally made its way into the Android world, many gaming fans rejoiced.

    Angry Birds is a free download that is known to provide addicting gameplay. It's premise is simple, but is sure to hook you once you start playing. You are basically in charge of several angry birds that are seeking revenge on green pigs that have stolen their eggs. You have to use a slingshot to catapult the birds into structures protecting the pigs. The structures differ each time, so you will have to use different strategies to attack them. As you hit the structures, they will collapse in varying ways, and you earn points as they tumble down and destroy the pigs. 

    While the game's premise may sound simple, it offers plenty of replay value. The Android version offers 150 levels that are sure to stump your destructive mind. As you progress, you will take control of birds that have special powers, such as acceleration, the ability to explode, extra strength, and more. You use these powers to your advantage as you attempt to destroy the pigs within their protective structures.

    Angry Birds is a quirky selection that does not provide great graphics or realism, but it is plenty of fun and will surely have you eagerly playing once downloaded. The game's simplicity and fun gameplay make it a great first download to your Android gaming catalog.

    Homerun Battle 3D

    Whether or not it's baseball season does not matter. You can still enjoy a part of America's favorite pastime on your Android device with Homerun Battle 3D. As its name would suggest, Homerun Battle 3D's simple plot revolves around a home run derby. Your goal is to hit as many home runs as possible to max out your score and earn some customizable options.

    The game offers a few different modes to keep your interest. To start, you can use the training mode to improve your timing and skill. Once tested, you can then try your hand with the single player mode. As you gain achievements, you can earn some player customizations. For instance, you can tweak your player's wardrobe, their body, or their equipment. 

    The single player mode can get repetitive. Luckily, there is a matchup mode where you can play against live opponents online. You can see their progress via a picture-in-picture option to pace yourself as the competition heats up. The game does have some nice 3D graphics, but don't expect a ton of realism.  What you can expect is a lot of fun, particularly with online opponents. Homerun Battle 3D's limited game version is free, but you can purchase the full version for about $5.
