Yeah, dump your best apps/games/customization apps for Android here. I just solved my device's RAM issues so I can afford to run some games without the device lagging like hell.
A few mentions from me, since it wouldn't be too fair otherwise.

You Must Build A Boat -  a pretty nice time killer, sort of like an endless runner, but not quite. Each 'dungeon' is procedurally generated, and your task is pretty much... building a boat! A bigger and better boat with more staff. Fun game overall.

ICE - a game I used to run on a friend's device during breaks in the college. A nice quick-time strategy game, nothing too complicated, but relaxing. Your goal is pretty much capture every single camp, before any of the CPU opponents does it. So claiming camps, fighting with CPU armies, reclaiming camps, fighting for yours, pretty typical and yet fun.

Tap Titans - just your typical clicker game. Nothing too special, but the visuals are nice and it's actually pretty well-optimized.

Oh! Edo Towns - city management, settlers-like. Pretty nice if your device can't run The Settlers HD. As mine.

Well, everything I posted runs perfectly fine offline. And that's pretty much the type of games I like - for instance, I would play a shitload outta Puzzle and Dragons or Soccer Spirits from mis's thread, but they both require you to be online as you play, and I don't have that sort of luxury. Well, that, and Soccer Spirits kept crashing for no apparent reason.

So yeah. What are your picks?

I'll dump some of my favs here.

Neko Atsume
A cute little game where you organize your yard and collect cats. It's free to d/l and play, there are some micro-transactions but they seem completely pointless as the premium currency is super easy to get. Aside from that no annoying adverts or whatever so 5/5 for me.

Make your phone a little faster on startup with this one, also kills some background apps and just generally keeps things clean. This one is free too, no downsides.

Nova Launcher
My favorite launcher. I really like having all my apps in an alphabetical list, also the home screen is super minimal now thanks to this app. I'd definitely suggest it. Free app but there is also a premium version that gives you a couple more aesthetic features.

One Cleaner
Similar to Purify. Monitors RAM usage and stuff, lets you clear all your processes besides OS and stuff with one swipe.

Just a couple there. Might throw some more in later.

Feel free to PM me if there is anything I can help with!
Also if you just want to talk I'm always available.

Pixel Dungeon is the only app I'd particularly recommend at the moment. There's a couple modded versions, so choose according to personal preference; I myself like Shattered Pixel Dungeon best.

It's so good. It's challenging, it's free, it has no ads, it's simple enough, et cetera.
If you like traditional roguelikes even one bit *cough*@mis*cough* you really should pick this up.

In reality, all he's doing is pushing the same buttons he always has, nothing has changed. The longer he spends here, the more invested he gets, the more he forgets which life is the real one.

Cytus - a rhythm game, basically. It's actually pretty fun, you follow this Active Scan Line and you tap each note as the line passes through.

Just gonna list games for this one. - Don't Look Back by Terry Cavanagh - Same guy who did VVVVVV and Super Hexagon. If you like his stuff check this one out. (Free) - Hill Climb Racing by Fingersoft - Fun 2D physics-based racing game. Does have advertisements and pay-to-win stuff but isn't terribly unbalanced. A good time waster. (Free w/ ads) - RETRY by Rovio Entertainment Ltd & Level 11 Games - Retro-inspired flight-game. Super difficult but addictive with awesome pixel vibes and chiptunes. Does have pay-to-win and advertising. (Free w/ ads) - Horizon Chase by Aquiris Game Studio S.A. - Inspired by the original Top Gear game on the Super NES, this racing game features beautiful low-poly graphics, amazing music by Barry Lietch, and tons of unlockable things with a arcade gameplay style. You can play the first 5 levels for free, full game is $2.99 USD. (Free Demo, Unlock full game for $2.99 USD)

Hoplite is a really good game. Google won't give me the unwrapped link so I can't link it.

Tasker - Great app for customization. I use this for my wallpaper rotation (~100 walls), and a few other things like auto-replying to SMS while I'm sleeping.

My Boy! - GBA Emulator. Has a free version (I linked paid). Works wonderfully, and is probably my go-to app for entertainment.

Portal - WiFi File Transfers. Great for transfering files between your computer and your phone, unfortunately its one way (Computer -> Phone), but its great nonetheless, and I use it all the time.

AdAway - Although it isn't on the play store, it is a great app. Requires ROOT, but works as a host file ad blocker. Works wonders.

Vopor - Icon pack I use. I really like it, and its worth the money.
