Android gaming is very satisfying kind of portable gaming. But, it is definitely not as satisfying on low-budget or entry-level or outdated devices. With games ranging from intensed high graphics to low graphics, from space consuming (1GB - 2.5GB) to not so space consuming (10MB-30MB). But, some of those games need very high standard hardware and software.
