If you're a fan of games like Threes! or 2048, Hues is a game you should check out. While the premise of the game is similar to other card-matching games in that you have a 4x4 grid to match different cards to earn points, instead of numbers, Hues lets you match colors.
A particularly unique Android game just came to the Play Store today called Bounden, where two players each hold their thumb on a short edge of the screen, and have to move the device together so the center area hits targets around a 3D sphere at the right time.
