This critically acclaimed game of the year title basically rose to fame over night in the Android Play Store and is hands down one of the best free Android games around. Unfortunately this super addictive title is no longer available in the play store and there are many clones trying to take its place due to the fact that the developer removed the game due to unwanted attention.
Flappy Bird is one of those titles that is easy to pick up and nearly impossible to put down, simply watch the hours drain away as you palm slap your forehead in anger for not being able to beat this seemingly simple game. So you are probably wondering since its removed from the Play store, why we have listed it here?, well fear not as you still can find and install this great app, so if you are interested in this fun game see the link at the end of this article.
The concept: You basically tap the screen to control a weird bird in mid flight that rises and falls based on the intensity and the number of taps you make, the trick is to hover and never making the bird touch the ground while maneuvering daintily through the Mario like pipes that are evenly space one after the other with gaps at different points. And as always the bird cannot hit any of the obstacles.

Death Moto 2 is a Biker Gang wannabe’s wet dream, that mixes in a apocalyptic end of the earth zombie scenario with missile launcher, chain wielding, sword slashing action that will have you feeling like the biggest badass this side of the Death Moto high way.

Yeh amassing title right? It simply jumps out at you literally and trust me this Granny can run better than any long distance and sprint runner hybrid I have ever seen. I wish my Grandma was this agile and in this game you will have tuns of fun escaping Grans asylum.
So its a Grandma world after all as you blase through the streets picking up boosts and encountering some really weird obstacles along the way such as Aliens, Dinosaurs and large sheets of glass.
