    ...please stop making puzzle games. I'm tired of having to sort through dozens and dozens of puzzles to find a decent game. K thx.

    Not that this thread is going to make a but of an impact, but +1.

    I'd rather see google improve their market to include deeper categorization of apps and games, and enhance the searching and sorting.

    Additionally...please take the extra days or weeks it takes to polish the program into something I'm justified in paying for. I hate the iPhone but the iPhone games put ours to shame most of the time...

    This. PLEASE.

    Also get rid of all the:

    Slider puzzles
    Memory games
    Bejeweled/samegame clones
    Brickwell
    "Lights out"
    "Touching games"

    Countless amounts of trash apps...

    I'm pretty sure the OP doesn't mean that kind of puzzle game, I only have ShootU of those you mentioned and it's pretty good :)

    No, I love ShootU! I'm tired of slider puzzles themed around various pop culture, Bejeweled rip offs, etc. I don't care how well they sell, we have enough. I'd gladly pay iPhone App Store prices for games that are actually worth a crap.

    Haha I'm not holding my breath, most decent flash games run poorly even on rather fast PCs. I'll be impressed if flash applications run even reasonably on the phones.

    Paper Toss is fun and clever. Physics based games are a real growth area for all handsets.

    Well i for one agree and disagree.

    1. Those puzzle games are probably a stepping stone in learning how to code. I wish them luck and success for better things to come.

    2. The games section has genres. Why don't you just NOT click on puzzle games?

    THIS would be a really good soloution. and im also hating the sliding puzzle crap. This is one of the few downsides of opensource that every ape can bring his wannabe games to the market.

    I agree that it should be more distinct with the market.

    Like a CRAP and a NOT CRAP section! :icon_ banana:

    and you look down at all the Just In apps, wtf are people doing these days? lol :)

    I'm fine with those puzzles being stepping stones but we have enough now...keep them on your handset and move on to the next job.

    I personally click on "all games" and it ends up being severely dominated by puzzles. I want to view all the other genres, just not puzzles. Perhaps they should finally let us browse the full market online. I found the iPhone app store much more manageable in iTunes.

    Finally, please don't take this thread as me being a jerk. I'm simply giving you instructions on how to get me to open my wallet. So far, I've purchased Crystal Light and the rest have been utilities I need to keep my rooted Droid working right. I really do want to buy more games, just have to find some worth it. dancedroid

    I did laugh at the post, but it brings up a serious lack of organization on Googles part. Hopefully they can clean up the app store with more specific catagories.

    I'm not seeing a lot of innovation when I look at the games available. You're right, way too many slider puzzles, bejeweled clones and "add me!" reviewed games. Maybe it's a bit too early but I'm hoping someone starts breaking from the pack and starts pumping out some games of distinction (worth buying).
