The page comes up in a normal browser looking normal. Click options and mobile format beside one of the links and you'll see the mobile view hosted by Google.

Something is different about your settings or something, not seeing it.
Either make your site mobile compatible or disallow googlebot-mobile & don't expect any traffic from Google Mobile Search.
Played the game as described above with EXACT KEYWORDS that brought up ONLY MY SITE, and guess what, everything worked properly, even links back to my home page, next page, etc. Not sure what you're seeing.
I do see what I think you're seeing, and I'm in the US. Every page comes through a Google Android URL and the page is stripped down and missing certain features. Every link goes to another Android url, too.
I think the best advice comes from suratmedia above, because the kind of treatment your site is getting is not uncommon at all in the mobile world. Them little computers just can't handle a full-blow website.
So either create a mobile version or block them, if that's your choice. You'll probably get more mileage out of playing the game, however. And since you're already getting mobile traffic, I'd say go for it - it's an opportunity.

I honestly would NOT block them, I'd work to give them a better experience. It's a marketing opportunity - really.
Site I used to test is not your ordinary site. It is "1997-2001" in code, thus very friendly to mobile from the get go, also does not have ads. Might not be the best test, but worked just fine.
