Agent Dash for ARMv6 Devices Brings Addictive, Facebook-Compatible Gaming
Gaming on Android is slowly but steadily gaining momentum. Just a couple of short years ago, the center of Android gaming was Angry Birds and a few other scattered games. Now, gaming has become much more popular, with many more titles to choose from. This includes games that are compatible with Facebook.
