Best new Android and iPhone games of the week (August 11th - August 17th)


Let's start off the week with some fun with the best new Android and iPhone games so far in August 2015! 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.

The big news this week is the launch of Fallout Shelter on Android. After the game made its debut on iOS first a few weeks ago, the game is now available on the Android ecosystem and is available as a freemium release.

And while we're used to seeing many great new games, this week we're smitten with the sheer amount of new releases. We enjoyed the  innovative gameplay of Sniper Who Forgot To Open Eyes a lot, this is a game that will surprise you. There is more to that, though. We won't spoil it - just take a look at our selection of the best new Android and iPhone games for the past week right below.
