Games on XDA: Money or Death
I’ve met very few people in this world who do not like money. It stands to reason then, that someone would create a game using greed to make a life or death decision; XDA Member coder1cv8 has done just that with his latest creation, Money or Death.
Your objective is simple: get the money on the ground without being killed by the snake. According to coder1cv8 the game features:
+ great graphic and sound effects
+ realistic animation
+ this game is absolutely free
+ you and your friends may compete with help of OpenFeint
+ it’s simply gambling and fun

Although repetitive, Money or Death is an excellent time killer and a great way to gamble without actually endangering your life. Head on over to the thread here and give the game a try. Don’t die.
