An awkward dungeon management game, with walls you can't dig out, rooms you build but don't know how much of or what size, and an interface that could only be inspired by a 1980s DOS game.

Absolutely not recommended.

An operating system most notably on mobile phones, but also found on media boxes.

Fundamentally flawed - It is tethered to Google in as many ways as they've made possible. From a time server, to internet traffic compression. From google play requiring an account requiring your verified phone number. From hoops to download and install software from their store. It's fucking awful.

A tower defense game, but with tanks and more upgrading.

I tried the demo and didn't give it much of a chance. For example, I didn't customize units. I prefer the more sandbox-style of Gratuitous Space Battles.

Be a gang member, run around in a sandbox world and shoot stuff, I guess.

A utility (primarily) for those with multiple monitors.

I got it to stretch my bottom bar across into the other screen, and it also has a feature to fix alt-tab so it only shows/includes the current desktop. Also of interest is putting a proper screensaver on alternate monitors.

It has a huge array of features. Of note is a configuration backup/restore feature, so I don't have to make any notes on it.

I'm using the for-pay standard version, and can't review the without-cost version. So while I can say I highly recommend this, I don't think it's really valuable to recommend something with a price tag.

A combined first-person shooter and tower-defense game.

Seems pretty cute, but I hate tower defense games which have multiple entrances.
