Best new Android, iOS and Windows Phone games for May 2014 (part 2)

Best new Android, iOS and Windows Phone games for May 2014 (part 2)
This is our selection of the best games for the month. Take a look at our picks for best Android, iOS and Windows Phone apps for May 2014.

We have handpicked the very best new Android, iOS and Windows Phone games for the past month, and now it's time for a wrap-up. In the past few weeks, it seems that the flood-gates of gaming developers opened and brought us tens of extremely well-made apps, and while there was no one single name to really stand out from the rest, we had multiple equally well-crafted games and a really tough time narrowing down our selection to just the finest.

We start off with a simple, but a game that has raked in rave reviews with its well-thought out multiplayer - Battleheart Legacy. The game is an action-RPG with not just great-looking graphics, but also a very good fighting system, and plenty of enchanting levels to play and develop your hero. Unfortunately, it's an iOS-exclusive at the moment, but we expect to see it arrive on Android as well. Speaking of iOS exclusives, Botanicula has also recently made its way onto the App Store, a puzzler with simply jaw-dropping graphics from the makers of the acclaimed Machinarium.

Another game worth a mention is Heroes and Castles for both Android and iOS. A mix of castle defense, strategy, and RPG, this is a game that is not just a time killer - it will have you glued to the screen for way longer, exploring the many heroes with their capabilities.

On the Windows Phone front, Badland, one of the most atmospheric side-scrolling games for Android and iOS, has made its debut, and it's every bit as entertaining on WP as well.

With no further ado, take a look at our absolute favorite Android, iOS and Windows Phone titles right below, and let us know what you have been playing these days!

I dont think phonearena does much research when it comes to windows phone apps, The games I really luv playing on a large screen like lumia 1520 are Asphalt 8 Royal Revolt 2 Six guns Sims GTA San Andreas and countless others but these are my favorite.

This is iPhoneArena and AndroidArena buddy. It'll be better od you visit WP Central for news related to Windows Phone and Nokia.

What Nokia? You mean the network company? They have now nothing common with M$ and WP whatsoever.

Well in office when I don't have much work I just browse several tech sites, love the wpcentral app on my fone very informative and helpful for wp users, but for rest I prefer xda and phonearena.

lol thnx for pointing that, just opened this article on my laptop I was using the phone chrome browser didn't show the heading only the article details even than windows has much better new games like ballance, revolt 2 and some disney game they made a great deal about etc. Nokia Boys lol, I've never sided with any platform or manufacturer as i don't own shares in any of them, I buy whichever suits my work and personal life best and right now its the 1520 and htc m8. Your preference might be different from me, Im not forcing you to get a nokia phone so chilllll.

It sounds like you need to chill. Are you upset that only a tiny few WP apps is shown at the end. While the majority of new apps are still iOS and Android.

Lol no my wp phone is a secondary (Work) phone Its too big for everyday use I use it mostly to play games, work on spreadsheets while travelling and offline nokia world maps (Last two features are a must have for me), I have a htc m8 for calls and casual use, but I was expecting "best new games", not "new games" apart from that I don't have any issues with the list was just highlighting that much research wasn't done for the wp apps, and my para. was for comment # 6,

WP may not have as much apps as Android and iOS but there are tens of Millions who likes it better. Be grateful for choice.

You are a hardcore Android fan who quickly hates on others like WP, dont consider yourself a beacon of neutrality.
