Best new Android, iOS and Windows Phone games for January 2014
We all expected 2014 to be a great year for games, bringing us console-quality titles, but truth is that it was not a game that the new year kicked off with - it was an addiction. Yes, we’re talking about Flappy Bird, the smash-hit by Vietnamese indie developer Dong Nguyen, that has quickly climbed to the top of the Android and iPhone charts. The game should be coming to Windows Phone in the next few days as well, which is good news.

In addition to Flappy Bird, we have hand-picked only the very best new games for Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone for the past month, all titles that you should check out if you have the time.

From first-person shooters with jaw dropping graphics like Deus Ex, to the enchanting story of The Cave, to addictive racers like Table Top Racing, there is something for every taste. We start off our selection with 20 games for the two biggest platforms, iOS and Android, and finish it off with five new games for Windows Phone.

Now, what’s your favorite new game?

Woohoo, a racing game! Got sick of Asphalt 8 and RR3. They eat up so much space in my phone. .-.

A simple stutter was all it took to realize that this game can be beat. I also had an app that could monitor and control cpu states and clock speeds called No-Frills CPU Control. Turned CPU states, clock speeds and frame rates to a minimum, the result was an answer to my prayers. The bird was super slow and I could easily time my flaps just right so I could easily pass through the pipes.

my high score in flappy bird is 30. Got that on 2nd day. Needs more concentration of eyes & finger. Last 2 days I am trying to beat that and scores are 22 , 24 ,25 , 29 and lot of single digits including zeros. Now feels migraine due to effort to concentrate on the bright moving pixels.
