I found more for iPad than Android (Nexus 10). But I can write my own for Nexus 10 without having to pay a stupid $100 developer fee. So I vote Nexus 10 > iPad.

Droid is a Lucas Film trademark. Serial Number 77845682. Used under license by Verizon.
Android is a Google trademark. Serial Number 77318565

They are not the same.

There are many Android tablets. Google is your friend.

It's true, this thread should be comparing iOS to Android rather than iPad to Android. But since iPad is the only tablet that runs iOS (as far as I know) it all comes out the same in the wash.

My Android tablet is a Nexus. It will not run *all* Android apps, but will run most of them. (Careful Android programmers create apps that will run on all or most platforms.)

So Android and Nexus make games for all platforms and this means no exclusive ones?
I know iPad has exclusive ones

Android and iOS are operating systems (software).
iPad and Nexus, and many more, are brand names of tablets (hardware).
iPad runs only iOS*. Only Apple hardware runs iOS (iPad, iPod, iPhone). They're tied to each other.
Android runs on many types of hardware (computers, tablets, phones) and many brand names.


*unless it's a 'jailbroken' iPad. I don't know what sorts of stuff folks have managed to get to run on a jailbroken iPad.

To answer your specific question, Android games run on many platforms, but not all. iOS games run on Apple's iOS devices only.

Go to the Google Play store. It will show you much of what is available for android. There are still a few apps that are only available on android phones and not tablets. As for games, most any of them that are worthwhile will be available on tablets.
The nexus7 does games very well. I assume the nexus10 is good also. Those are just two of the many android tablets out there. Those are just the ones marketed and sold by Google.
