Spider Solitaire and Garfields Defense are the top-reviewed Android games for August
If you were wondering what the best-reviewed Android games on the web last month were, here's the Android Quality Index round-up for August to fill you in.

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.

It's the cat's whiskers

Whatever your gaming tastes, you (and plenty of Android gaming critics) can't beat a spot of digital solitaire and comic strip cats - as evidenced by Spider Solitaire topping the Android Qi game chart for August 2012 and Garfields Defense finishing in second place.

Down in fourth, meanwhile, the wickedly funny Organ Trail: Director's Cut is winning a lot of fans with its retro-tinged survival sim gameplay.

Few companies have embraced the Android platform quite like Kairosoft, however, so it's no surprise to see the Japanese studio's sci-fi management sim Kairobotica sitting pretty at #6.

Behind it in eighth lies Glu's Gears & Guts, a splattery mix of driving and arena carnage with a healthy helping of zombies on the side.

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.
