February might be the shortest month in the year, but this year it brought us an amazing amount of great games. Traditionally, some of the best titles launched around the end of the month, but it was definitely worth the wait.
Real Racing 3, of course, would easily become the most popular game for the month, and it shocked gamers with not just amazingly detailed graphics, but also a very aggressive in-app purchase model. Freemium at its worst for one of the best games around.
AVP: Evolution is much less controversial - pay five bucks up front and you get all the action fun you want with the Predator and Alien saga without the tricky in-app purchases.
Those are just two of 25 amazing game picks ranging from racing to platformer to pocket stables manager!
With no further ado, take a look at February’s finest games on the Apple App Store and Android’s Google Play.
