Subway Surfers and McPixel are the top-reviewed Android games for September
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 September to fill you in.

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.

Running away with it

Subway Surfers has managed to park(our) itself at the top of the Android Qi game chart for September 2012 through its blend of Temple Run mechanics and street art.

Kiloo's freerunner tagged the #1 spot ahead of unhinged point-and-click puzzler McPixel and the long-awaited conversion of The Bard's Tale (an epic and humorous RPG taken straight from far-off Consoleland).

Down in fifth place, meanwhile, Rovio's latest Angry Birds spin-off Bad Piggies gives those wicked oinkers an all-new physics-puzzler of their own to star in.

Propping up the table in tenth, Granny Smith is an engaging platform-racer starring a vengeful octogenarian who's handy on her skates.

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.

Jon is a consummate expert in adventure, action, and sports games. Which is just as well, as in real life he's timid, lazy, and unfit. It's amazing how these things even themselves out.
