Best new Android and iPhone games (February 16th - 22nd)
Let's start off the week with some fun! In our weekly round up of the best new Android and iPhone games we introduce you to everything new and worthy with no limits to the genre, platform, or price. We can't guarantee that you'd love the genre of the game we've picked, but if you do, chances are you’d spend hours playing one of these games.

This week everything is abuzz with the gorgeous new Alto's Adventure, an endless game for iOS that features a calming atmospheric environment and a snowboarder who performs all sorts of jumps and tricks in in an ever-changing mountainous world. That's hardly all there was when it comes to new releases, though, with a few nice puzzlers, a brand new racing game that fans of the genre will like, and a lot more.

Reach IOS first ? They don't just reach IOS first. They also stay exclusive for iOS.

Developers choose IOS as the first priority because the IOS has a zero tolerance of piracy. That's the only good thing i like with the IOS. Whereas majority of android users download games & apps for free via third party websites.

There is a lot of stuff that never reaches iOS, the entire freaking Conflict strategy game series is Android only for example. IMO the fail with Android is that there are so many low quality devices out there, who the F manufactures phones with 512k memory? You can't even run all the default apps on those phones.

I really like Android, but Google really is going to have to find a better way to incentivize Devs to create for their platform at a faster rate. Heck if Xbox & Playstation (not to mention SEGA & Nintendo well before them) can get side by side releases they (Android) shouldn't settle for a coming soon tag.

Sorry, but I just see some indie sh*t for Android in this article, and really great games for iOS.

Sorry, don't the point of your comment. If you only what to hear of Apple and iOS news then you should stay on site that does that. e.g Mac Rumours or Apple Insiders.

Its ok to buy a iPad to play the iOS exclusive. Then have an Android phone for price and flexibility. This a list of games that are Android exclusive; not exhausive as Legion of Heros are not on that list and the link is three year olds.
