Best new Android, iOS and Windows Phone games
2014 treated us, gamers with an amazing start - Nvidia unveiled the first true console-grade graphics chip, the Tegra K1 with Kepler. The K1 manages to beat the productivity of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 without having their huge power budget, and we can only imagine the kind of games that will make use of that in 2014.

Even from the start of the year, though, we have some great games to play - the sequel to Cut the Rope, a new Grand Theft Auto, and a few amazing adventure games. What more could one want? Well, we have added a few more games from various different genres that are equally awesome.

As always, we have hand-picked only the best Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone games, so you don’t have to wander in the depths of app stores. Take a look right below, and feel free to let us know which games you like best.

Android and iOS games: #1 to #13

This turd about unavailability of "major" apps is getting old, too. Tell me how many "major" apps do you use, then tell me which count as "major" in iOS and "major" in Android.

Every OS has their exclusives, so those count as relatively "major" as well. They may or never get ported (in time), but I understand that, for some, it's hard to accept change and dissolve fanboyism.

If you are content with the wp titles good for you. I see two temple run clones, and a few other repeats.

Still lagging behind.

What about...
Halo Spartan Assault
Asphalt 8
Modern Combat 4....

Are these not good quality high end games❔

And Microsoft is charging how much for Halo Spartan Assault?

Its a half ass title and Microsoft want $7 for it. That's just for starter cause there are plenty of in-apps purchase to be bought insides the game.

Microsoft epic greed showing and they just have one halo branded generic fps. To me it shoud be free to help sell wp phone besides the game has in apps purchase which is always free in android ecosystem.

Apps are arriving to the BB App World slowly, the latest app on the BB App World is Asphalt 8 which is surprising. Just hope they will get more apps and games like Dead Trigger 2, GT Racing 3, Real Racing 3, Angry Birds Go!, GTA San Andreas etc.

I want to switch to BlackBerry but the lack of famous apps on their App World is just scary. Oh well, let's hope BlackBerry can survive and keep improving. Keep moving, BlackBerry.

I'd like to own Blackberry, too. Too little apps for me, unfortunately. But, yeah, Keep Going, BB.

GTA San Andreas is the only one that looks worth playing, and it's not even originally a mobile game.

I have GTA SA on my Nexus 7, one of best mobile games, though controls are bit crappy, it's expensive and lags sometimes.

Windows phones is still a joke. They got the crappy endless running games that we've had for years already. It's like a hand me down lol

WP is the fastest growing operating system in the world , hitting double digits in many countries, WP has many of the very latest games available on Android and iOS like, Trial Xtreme 3 etc, Despicable Me: Minion Rush, N.O.V.A 3 etc amongst many more, we also have exclusives like Halo: Spartan assault etc.

Many games are now launching on WP the same time or shortly after they are released on iOS and Android, like for eg Grand theft auto San Andreas is launching very shortly a mere month or couple of months after iOS and Android. competition is good for consumers.

Fastest growing?
That's a metric that is very contrary.

So it outpaced iOS or android in the same four years they've been out?
Oh you must mean a specific version, otherwise BS.

Numbers clearly speak otherwise.

Windows Phone has halo spartan assault!! And your crappy fuggy, buggy and laggy droid will never have it. How about this? LOL And don't forget about the Lag free perfromance that every Android users dream about, but sadly it's still a dream.

So, wake up and live in reality.

Wp is still waiting for a file manager, and pull down notification.
Wp, Ios, Jellybean they all run on 60HrtsFps. Ios and Wp are still in Beta mode. There still classed as half platform, still has not matured like Android. How funny insulting and bashing a full Os, vs half matured version. Others will laugh at your childish I'll behaviour. Would love to see if every features are migrated to Wp, from Android to Wp. Lags and stutters will be very imminent

Did IOS have a notification center before the IO7 update? I don't hear any complaints about how late they were to implement such feature. As a matter of fact I didn't read any comment about them being premature without a dedicated notification center. WP runs butter smooth as is. With the upgrade in specs used in phones such as the Lumia 1520, you can bet the silky smooth experience will continue even when more features are added. Your comment about, "Lags and stutters will be very imminent" is pure speculation. Don't hold your breath because WPs are penetrating deeper and deeper into the market.

I am lag free, as well not smothered/covered in transitional screens either, I see a lot of that in wp still like ios, why?

That water cold enough to wake you up maybe a bit?
Lag, I think that shoe had found a new foot.

My Galaxy Note 3 is the most advanced and powerful cell phone on the market. There isn't a windows phone anywhere on par with this. So you saying my "droid" lags is beyond under educated. Oh yeah, and by the way: I don't have a phone under the Verizon Droid line so...

They really didn't name the really good games on WP like Halo Spartan Assault, Asphalt 8, and, Modern Combat 4 just to name a few... This isn't a very good view of the games available for WP..
Nevertheless, it does show that the platform still has a ways to go compared to Android, and iOS... The good thing is that the app situation is tons better than this time last year and isn't showing any sign of slowing down... Give credit where credit is due people... WP is nowhere near failure, it's a wonderful experience for people with open minds, and it just keeps getting better and better,,, regardless of what other say..

Agree. WP is not a failure by a long shot with Microsoft backing. However, could they adopt a better business model and stop overcharging us.

E.g why should they design a special firmware for xbox360 hdd so they could charge an extra for their version of xbox360 hdd while Sony allow their user to swap their PS3 hdd cheaply for bigger model or faster SSD.

HDD is not M$ primary business but yet they want a share because they are greedy.

wp is not windows....people get things straight already ubuntu touch, blackberry, palm os, hell even bada makes wp look like crap...now ios without steve jobs will be dead before 2020 i guarantee it, android is growing big time and if they would quit making stupid choices they could be perfect....renderscript instead of open cl was retarded, and they should have taken monos lead and migrated to c#
