You can download StackEm from the Android Market, the Verizon VCast Android store, or the Amazon Appstore for Android.
In StackEm, you place pieces on a four-by-four board and win by creating a row, column, or diagonal of four pieces of your own color. The twist is that there are pieces of varying sizes and you can place larger pieces on top of smaller pieces, regardless of if they belong to you or your opponent, to block them or to win yourself. StackEm was originally written by Shawn Grimes and released as an Apple iOS app for both the iPhone and iPad device lines. The Android version was written by Jeff Six for Android devices; this version uses the same graphics and gameplay but has an entirely new and separate codebase.
StackEm is played on a four-by-four grid of tiles. Players alternate moves and are allowed to move one piece (a stacker) at a time. When it is your turn, you may move any of your exposed pieces (be they from one of your three stacks of not-yet-used stackers or already on the board and not covered by another, larger, stacker) to any open tile or to any tile containing another piece that is smaller than the one you are moving.
Here is a video of StackEm for Android, showing a game played against the computer, to illustrate the gameplay.
