The Android Quality Index boasts over 290,000 reviews from websites like Life of Android, Pocket Gamer, and AndroidRundown, and uses a unique metric to create a single definitive score for each Android title.
Keep on running
Making the transition to Android in record-breaking style - and sprinting straight to the top of our game chart - is everyone's favourite free-to-play time sink Temple Run.
Critics agree that this multi-million-downloaded endless-runner deserves the attention it has received from consumers, resulting in a glowing Qi score of 9.1.
If you get tired of running and fancy hunkering down and defending some towers, WestRiver's Slime vs. Mushroom2 has done an excellent job of repelling potential usurpers to finish in second place on our April round-up.
Alternatively, if managing resources in sub-zero conditions is more your cup of tea, then the highly rated Ice Age Village may put a freeze on your productivity.
Qi's Top 10 Android games of April 2012

N.B. While we only display the average score to one decimal place, the list is generated to further significant figures. We just don't show them all.
And, naturally, this is a static graph based on live listings which are subject to constant change as new releases and reviews emerge.
In order to provide a regular marker of the critical zeitgeist, however, we will continue to round up the best of the Android games released each month to provide the definitive Quality Index top ten.
