â€œDead Triggerâ€Â â€”Free
If thereâ€™s a better stress reliever than mowing down wave after wave of zombies, it hasnâ€™t come to light yet. This first-person shooter has everything going for it: easy controls, post-apocalyptic landscapes and a plethora of undead-obliterating weaponry.
â€œBadÂ Piggiesâ€Â â€”Free
RovioÂ achieved great fame with a little app featuring ill-tempered members of the avian family. This entry focuses on the antagonists of that wildly popular franchise: the pigs.

After all, a budding honor-bound assassin has to start somewhere.
With these games downloaded to an Android device, the user should be able to while away as much time as his or her lifestyle will allow killing zombies, slicing watermelon, launching pigs into the sky and whatever else his or her little gaming heart desires.
