The Android Quality Index boasts over 290,000 reviews from websites like Life of Android, Pocket Gamer, and Gamezebo, and uses a unique metric to create a single definitive score for each Android title.
In the shadows
June was clearly the month of the silhouette platformer on the Android gaming scene, with not one but two visually minimalist offerings leaping into the Android Top 10.
In thought-provoking platformer Continuity 2, Noodlecake has tinkered with the genre formula slightly by introducing a tile-rearranging element into proceedings, thereby forcing you to manipulate the environments and then push forward - an innovation which has propelled the title to the top of the chart.
Meanwhile, the shadowy Oscura has brought haunting visuals and clever controls to the table, earning it critical acclaim and a very respectable sixth-placed finish.
It wasn't all about platformers in June, though - Kairosoft's latest time-management title Pocket Clothier helps maintains the company's impressive track record of producing compelling mobile sims on a regular basis, ensuring it - cough - sews up second position on our rundown.

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.
