Best new Android and iPhone games of the week (June 30th - July 5th)


Let's start off the week with some fun with the best new Android and iPhone games so far in July 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 of the week is, naturally, the big launch of Vainglory - the hugely popular massive online battle arena (MOBA) game - on Android. After a lot of testing, the game has appeared on the Google Play Store and has been updated on iOS, so that many more people can join in the fighting action. A new hero - Rona - has also arrived, which is nice.

Another high-profile launch that is fascinating is the curiously drawn fighting game The Executive. With its peculiar graphics and engaging gameplay, it's a lot of fun to play.
