Gameloft uploaded ports of their Iphone games on their Website, they are all AAA Titles that will push the quality of Android gaming immensely.
BUT DON’T BUY THEM YET! There are problems with all games at the moment, you cannot download the additional files to SD Card yet and you don’t have any rights to ask for a refund, as long as the games aren’t listed after you selected your handset. After the problems Asphalt Urban GT 5 had on Snapdragon processors, wait for them on the Android market, so you can return them, if they don’t run as they should, or at least wait until they were tested.

The nine games are Hero of Sparta, N.O.V.A, H.A.W.X, Real Football, Let’s Golf, Dungeon Hunter, Gangstar, Assasins Creed: Altair chronicles and Modern Combat Sandstorm.

Here are some videos of the games
