The gamer scene for Android is getting hot, with more devices emerging all the time.  This past week brought the exemplary HTC Evo, which presents a big screen and speedy processor, both of which are great for mobile gameplay.

News of ZodTTD’s upcoming PS3 emulator has heightened the anticipation around Android games as well.

Emulators

If you were lucky enough to get an HTC Evo this week, you may want to try Nesoid.  The $3.98 Nintendo game emulator was designed with such a phone in mind, offering a large screen and faster processing. Any games added to the emulator will look better on the Evo or similar phones.

ZodTTD has announced plans to launch a PSX Emulator for Android, making it the first of its kind. Already popular on the iPhone, ZodTTD’s mobile apps introduce new options for console game lovers that would like to go mobile with their favorite titles. The announcement reminds us of the changing landscape of  the Android games market.

In anticipation of having a PSX emulator on your Android device, why not try the PS3 Trophies and PS3 Friends PRO app?  At $1.99, you can add a widget displaying when gamer friends are online, as well as their statuses.  Share scores and track friends’ progress.

Action games

Growing in popularity is Heavy Gunner 3D, a shooter game that’s set in the future; your job is to kill all the aliens before they invade your station. The graphics-driven game will cost you $2.99, but it may be worth it if you’d like to see its full details on an Evo screen.

Vendetta Online’s MMORPG is headed to an Android device near you, starting with the Nvidia Tegra tablet.  The space adventure game is already popular on the Web, and its move to the mobile industry is a big step for developer Guild Software.

Casual games

ClingMarks, the team behind Pair Up, has greatly widened its reach with the release of the version of Pair Up for Android 1.5.  This free puzzle game requires you to match cards, but only through an eligible path.  There are several difficulty settings, and global leader boards for showing off your high SAT scores.

Just like a game of Risk, Dice Wars Online Beta pits you against four players to see who will be the last man standing. The real-time gameplay makes for exciting rounds, and the colorful imagery is actually quite pleasant. Free, this new dice game also tracks player progress, adding a social layer.

Bunny Mania Lite has seen some good growth recently, after having launched this spring.  The free game takes you on a lemming-like adventure, where you are faced with the obstacles of leading the bunnies to safety.
