Best new Android and iPhone games (November 22nd - November 28th)

Every week, we go through the new and notable games for iPhone, iPad and Android devices like the Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and we pick the best new releases that are worth a special place in your collection of memorable games.

The new Android and iPhone games that we pick have to be fun, well-ported to mobile, and not overwhelmed by in-app ads. Put simply, they need to be high quality games, but we don't discriminate by genre: you will find everything here, from shooters, RPGs, platformers, racing games, to strategy and more.

With no further ado, here are the best new games in the end of November 2016.

Re-Volt 3 is okay, feels nothing like the original though.

Why doesn't phonearena show the VR games. They are arriving every day now.

Because they are all pretty bad. This list is the Best New Games.

Your right, they are all pretty bad if you own an iPhone, especially with those low resolution displays like the iPhone 7/6s/6. They only have a resolution of 667x750 per eye. Whereas a QHD display gives you a much better resolution of 1280x1440 per eye. So if you all you own is an iPhone, then you clearly cannot make the call on what is good or not good when it comes to VR games.

Yeah, I think regardless of what you own, right now it feels like most VR games for phones are not really anything to write home about.

Clearly Victor, you and xcomaox never used the latest VR applications. For that matter you haven't kept up with what has been coming out. Oh, and it certainly does matter what device you own. If you own a 4.7" iPhone 6/6s/7 then your display will look very pixelated, and the field of view (FOV) will be a lot less than a display with a 5.5" or larger display. Not to mention the games that do take advantage of the mobile devices, like the Daydream VR or Gear VR look really good, and are very smooth. For crying out loud the Pixel smartphones have Daydream VR written on the side of the box. Did phonearena do a review of Google's Daydream VR headset yet? No they didn't. They did a review of the Gear VR. But why hasn't Phonearena done a review on Daydream VR? Hmm. What's the excuse?
