The Android Quality Index boasts over 290,000 reviews from websites like Life of Android, Pocket Gamer, and GameDynamo, and uses a unique metric to create a single definitive score for each Android title.
Use the Force
At the top of November's Android Qi games chart sits arguably the highest-profile mash-up of the year: Angry Birds Star Wars. Rovio's familiar physics-puzzler strikes back with lightsabers, force powers, and a pair of hapless droids.
Behind it in second place, Expendable Rearmed marries old skool shoot-'em-up gameplay with next-gen 3D visuals, and places you in a seamless yet tremendously detailed futuristic world.
In fourth place, meanwhile, is Need for Speed: Most Wanted, which is every inch the modern console arcade racer.
Stepping back into the past once again, we have Knights of Pen & Paper at #5. In this tabletop RPG from Behold Studios, you play the part of both hero and dungeon master. Clever twist, huh.
Qi's Top 10 Android games of November 2012
|1||Angry Birds Star Wars||9.4||7|
|4||Need for Speed: Most Wanted||8.8||6|
|5||Knights of Pen & Paper||8.8||4|
|6||Clear Vision (17+)||8.7||3|
|9||The Haunt 2||8.2||3|
N.B. While we only display the average score to one decimal place, the list is generated to further significant figures. We just don't show them all.
And, naturally, this is a static graph based on live listings which are subject to constant change as new releases and reviews emerge.
In order to provide a regular marker of the critical zeitgeist, however, we will continue to round up the best of the Android games released each month to provide the definitive Quality Index top ten.
