    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...:rolleyes:

    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

    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 :p

    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! :D

    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 ;):p:D

    Sorry to disappoint you though Brewstermax haha

    Bejeweled 2 not on the list? Wait until you have to sleep next to an addict..

    For me, Live poker, Chess with Friends, Fuzz Ball, and Ambiance seem to do the trick.

    My game has accelerometer controls, but you can still play it in any orientation... Go Pajatzo! :)

    A tiny bit, it doesn't make too much of a difference.

    Oh that's so cool. All I can say in my defense is "tldr" I guess. I think that's the very first time anyones mentioned my game anywhere. Eternal kudos to you! :D
