Best new Android and iPhone games (February 9th - 15th)
So what new Android and iOS games has February brought us? We start off the selection with a Flappy Bird-esque game called Rise of the Goat - it’s challenging, has a goat in it, requires tight focus and will have your fingers sweating for the highest score in no time. That’s just for starters, though, as there was really a bunch of great new apps, and we've picked a total of 9 great ones for you to play.
Game of the week: Auro: A Monster-Bumping Adventure
|Developer: Dinofarm Games||Download: Android, iOS|
|Genre: Strategy||Price: $2.99|
We love original titles, stories, and gameplay and Auro has got it all mixed together in a very charming strategic game that puts you in the feet of Prince Auro who roams a fantasy universe where he faces monsters with different tactics. Auro stands out with its strategy of bumping against them to battle these monsters, its great animated pixel art style, and gameplay that takes a lot of time to master but is still not too hard to grasp.
