A good collection of the games. One of the games I like most and I have on my device since long is pool break Pro. It is a combination of Pool, Snooker, Carron and Crokinole. Each of these indibidual games have multiple variants.
The interface anfd the look of the game is quite natural and realistic. The Pool game, for instance has different real life versions of the game in the real world - like 8 Ball, Rotation pool or a 9 ball pool. Same goes for other games like Carrom or Snooker.
One more game that love playing is Chess Genius. It gives you a realistic pleasure of playing chess. I would have loved the addition of these two games to the list.

I didn't try Pool Break Pro. Have to check that game. I had plenty of games to choose from. Some of them include LUDO, Card Duel games and few others. I found multiple chess game apps on Android. And I only played pre installed Chess in tablet once, so not sure about Chess Genius interface. I'll be giving these two games a try. I may review some more game apps in future.
