All games on the list were created by independent developers, so some allow the player to donate if they like the game very much and want to help the developer.

The wide variety and diversity of apps and games is exactly what makes the Android system so good and fun, and although we rely heavily on big stadiums for big apps, on the independent developers we find innovations and creativity that will later be used by Google, Microsoft, Rockstar and others.
