32 Best New Android Games From 1 to 8

1. Burn The Rope

Android Police coverage: Big Blue Bubble’s Popular iOS Game Burn The Rope Makes Its Way To The Android Market
One of the top iOS games has finally made it to Android. Definitely one to look at if you're picky.
Burn the Rope is a challenging game where you try to burn as much rope as you can in each level. There’s a catch! The fire only burns upwards, leaving you to tilt and turn the puzzle to keep your flame alive!
As you progress through the levels, you'll encounter bugs crawling along the rope. Different bugs have different reactions to the flame. For example, the ant changes the color of the flame so you can burn different colored ropes, and the spider shoots out a web bridge so you can access parts of the level that you could not before.

6. Orbital Defender Lite

Android Police review: [Review] Orbital Defender Might Just Be The Hardest Android Game You’ve Ever Played
This could very well be one of the hardest games on the Market, alongside Battleballz.
Save The Universe!
2012: Our Solar System is in danger. Your task is to protect it at any cost.
Try it and you will find it highly addictive...
What makes Orbital Defender special is its unique flick-based control system. You can use various weapons by slightly different gestures (Tap, Long touch, Flick, Drag from the planet's surface). The result is a highly playable and fun shoot 'em up that you can play anywhere you take your phone or tablet.
There are 5 levels in this version and 20 levels, a vast amount of enemies, and cool weapons in Full version.

7.Pax Britannica

Android Police review: [New App Review] Pax Britannica Gives Us One-Button, Competitive Strategy
Pax Britannica is a one-touch real-time strategy game by No Fun Games. Two players battle it out underwater, struggling to be the last one standing!
How to Play
Select your ship to start a battle against the computer. Select two ships to start a local multiplayer battle.
Touching your game area (Left screen for player 1, right screen for player 2) spins the needle on the radial menu in the middle of the player's factory ship. The needle will only travel as far as the player's current resources allow. Resources (gold? seaweed? who knows!) accumulate over time.
Releasing the touch creates a ship that corresponds to the quadrant that the needle is pointing at.
Fighter: Small, fast and cheap. Great at chasing down bombers.
Bomber: Shoots slow projectiles that do massive damage to frigates or enemy factory ships!
Frigate: A great hulk of a ship that fires volleys of heat-seeking torpedoes. Effective against fighters.
Upgrade: Improve your factory ship to accumulate resources more quickly.
Ships you spawn fight automatically using the latest in artificial aquatelligence technology. The player who keeps their factory ship alive wins!
This is a complete rewrite/port of the orginal game available for Windows, Mac OS X and GNU/Linux:

Android Police coverage: Heroes Of Might And Magic 3 Comes To Android <INSERT EXTREME EXCITEMENT HERE>
Yup, Heroes of Might and Magic 3, ported to Android (using the VCMI game engine). Unfortunately, the developer temporarily pulled the app from the Market to fix a crash, but I'm including it here anyway for future reference. Update: The game was taken down for about a week to fix some critical crash bugs, but as of 6/22/11, it's back!
