Game Genome Project for Android makes game discovery easy peasy
The Google Play store is full of great video games, but finding the ones that best fit your personal preference is much easier said than done. The folks behind the Game Genome Project are well aware of that and are working on solving the issue once and for all. 

Their solution is a new video game discovery tool that suggests titles based on traits that users specify instead of prioritizing their rating or number of downloads. A fast-paced, space shooter with swipe controls? No problem. A zombie-themed 3D action game with tilt controls? It can be found in an instant. And if you have a personal favorite video game genre, just save your preferred combination of traits and the software will automatically inform you of any newly-published titles that match your taste.

This new game discovery tool will be part of the Best Apps Market, which is a well-known application for finding the best software available on the Play store. You'll have to wait until October to download it, however, but in the meantime, you can check out the Game Genome Project web page and see for yourself how it works.

It is a zombie wearing a sombrero. Gotta protect that sensitive skin somehow. :)

Either way, Android's Play Store is much more easier to find, recommend and install new apps than iOS app store.

You even get trailers of most application, and relevant reviews regarding the device you are using or the version of the app.

Good to see they are improving over an already awesome market place.

This isn't a Google project this is a third party app to find games on Google play and I don't think will be that great since the results of searches will be skewed by ads or games that pay to advertise on this app
