Playing In Bed List

Let's make a list of games that you can play in bed...criteria for the game to be added to the list...
1) The screen doesn't flip as you turn it sideways (as it would when you lay down and turn sideways.)
2) The game is (obviously) not accelorometer based (Or has an option to turn it off) so it does'nt matter what direction the phone is.

Therre are so many games I'd love to play as I go to sleep but can't because of the screen issue or accelorometer..
PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE GAMES THAT YOU NEED TO TILT TO PLAY SUCH AS FASTLANE, ACE TENNIS, SCOOPS, TRISM, ROLANDO ETC...Thanks

Here are some examples of games that are "bed worthy"
Hanoi
Koi Pond
Deal or no Deal
Checkers
Rescue 500
ihangman
Pajatzo
Wurdle
Brother In Arms
Price is Right
Tiki Towers
Soul Trapper
Pajatzo
Alphabetic
Sneezies
Fieldrunners
Slingshot

Please add yours! Thanks!

Well, there are many many different touch based games that you could play while lying down, so it'd take a long time to list them all...

A few I like to play at night are:
- 7 Cities TD
- Chronicles of Inotia
- Vay
- Arvale
- Frenzic
- Fuzzle
- The Creeps! (although some parts require the accelerometer, the game is touch controlled)
- Fieldrunners
- Orions
- Tetris
- Snail Mail (I think this one works well even when lying down)
- Quick Draw
- Hero of Sparta
- Galcon
- Platypus
- TanZen
- Tiki Towers
- Uno
- Warfare Incorporated
- Zombie Attack!

As you can see, there are several that you can list, but those are about all of the games I could think of. :P

You can play all of those while laying down, and they're awesome to boot.

This is great! Thank you for making this thread. I was thinking about doing this.
I always am laying in bed but can't play more than half my games because of how I'm laying and it's late and don't wanna move

Here is a list of the games currently on my phone that I could play at night:
(in no order)

Quick Draw
Touch Hockey
Fingeric
Anaconda
Live poker
Tap Defense
TanZen
Fuzzle
All my other TD games.
Frenzic

And then I think you already named the rest I would have added to my list.

well I wasn't looking really for games that you have to tilt to play such as rolando,fastlane, ace tennis and trism since when you're tired and on your side and just have the phone in your hands as your drifting off to sleep, you're not really in the mood of turning and tilting the phone.....please keep this list to only games that do not require tilting.... thanks!

Lol I know I know

I do play it on my side and just do my best with the accelerometer only staying on the side.

But I wasn't going to recommend Trism here since it is an accelerometer based game and takes a lot of skill to be able to play while laying down about fall asleep

Sorry to disappoint you though Brewstermax haha
