Check out these free games!
I got sick 2 weeks ago and finally feeling better. I haven't had a chance to play many games but take a look at what I've got so far! Games are all free to both iOS and Android Devices.

3D Bowling
Bomb Squad
Castle Storm

3D Bowling / Action Bowling (Free)

Offered By: Italy Sports / Kronos Game
Size: 12MB / 33.8MB
Version: 2.7 / 1.9.2
Required Android: 2.0.1 or Later
Required iOS: 5.1.1 or Later In-App Purchase? No
App Store Rating: 4.0 Google play
App Store Rating: 3.0 iTunes

This was a pretty decent game. If you didn't have like a Wii / Wii U with a bowling game this can be fun/ I couldn't find the same game for iOS so I just substituted with another game on the link. Both of the games are FREE for Android and iOS in their app stores. I wish I had a tablet to play this on, it may have made this game a little better for me. I managed to get a couple strikes while playing. The controls themselves are basic; pick your starting place by moving your finger / stylus from left to right then flick your finger and watch the ball roll! You also have the option for choosing two player, another reason I'd prefer this game on a bigger screen like a tablet. I'd give this game 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Bomb Squad (Free)

Offered by: Eric Froemling
Size: 50MB / 17.9MB
Version: 1.4.11 / 1.2.8
Required Android: 4.0 or Later
Required iOS: 4.3 or Later
App Store Rating: 4.1 Google play
App Store Rating: 4.0 iTunes

I found the controls for this game a little hard to get used to in the beginning. I found myself falling off a lot of edges, but the more I played... the more I kind of improved. You have your 4 main controls on the right side and you move your character with the left. You can throw bombs, punch, jump, and the ability to pick things up like TNT boxes. You have different bombs to work with, my favorite are the land mines. I'll drop those after getting like 2-3 enemies to chase me towards the edge and BAM! You'll have other types of bombs like ice and sticky bombs. Overall I'd give this game a 4 out of 5 stars.

CastleStorm (Free)

Offered By: Zen Studios
Size: 366MB / 396MB
Version: 1.65 / 1.05
Required Android: 4.0 or Later
Required iOS: 5.0 or Later
In-App Purchase? Yes
App Store Rating: 4.4 Google play
App Store Rating: 4.5 iTunes

This is another one of the games I plan on keeping on my phone to play again from time to time. It's a castle defense type of game where your main control will be shooting arrows from your castle to attack the enemy. The most effective kills are head shots with this weapon. You'll also get to summon up to 5 types of fighters. You'll have choices like archers, healers, and close combat fighters. The most important character in my opinion is your main hero you can upgrade and summon for a short period to fight, this character will have the ability to both do hand to hand combat, shoot arrows, and use the shield to block any projectile attacks. I'd give this game a 4.5 stars, really fun to play.
