Best new Android, iOS and Windows Phone games for May 2014

Best new Android, iOS and Windows Phone games for May 2014
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 May, 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 extremely addictive game - TwoDots. The game is an iOS exclusive (don’t worry, an Android version is coming soon), and it has taken the App Store by a storm. It starts easy, but becomes very challenging quickly, and you’d find yourself playing time and time again to solve its puzzles.

Another game worth a separate mention is Pixel Press Floors that looks like just another platformer, but then you get to see its other side that allows you to actually build the world that you play and completely customize it, a possibility that we were hooked on.

While these two are iOS-exclusive titles, we have plenty of equally great Android games this month that you should not miss. The third ecosystem, Windows Phone, is notably lacking behind this month, as little of that tidal wave of great new iOS / Android games made it into the Marketplace. Still, we picked a handful of good titles for those rocking a Lumia, or another WP device.

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!

Yes, they remind me of games I played when I was a kid sometimes, but still they're good enough now to play when you're away and have nothing else in your hands ..

No, they will never catch up. They don't need to. After all they are just quickly played in a bus for example.

Well depends on your phone and its processor! I can say that Real Racing 3 is almost on par with Gran Turismo 5 on PS3 in terms of handling, graphics, engine and gameplay! Was pleasantly surprised by it! GTA as well are awesome compared to the PS2! 2GB RAM and Adreno 320+ GPU does magic!

I smell bullshi*. I suggest you to play GT5 (or even an older one) before posting stuff like that. I just tried Real Racing 3 yesterday. The graphics sure were impressive for a mobile game, but still not even close to GT5 or 6. But the ridiculous part of your comment is that Real Racing's physics and handling are almost on par with GT5... The cars behave super unrealistically. If you turn traction control off for example, it just drifts like crazy even on low speeds. And you cannot really control the drift. Also the cars don't under steer at all, even if the cars would in real life. A lot. Even Gran Turismo 3 has MUCH better physics.And the frame rate was under 30. Even with SD801 and 3GB RAM.

Well I'm a huge fan of the Gran Turismo games! I'm a pro and I've played all of them, but I don't like the fact that there are 10 or more variations of Skylines! Lol! I guess you did not like playing GT with all assistance, traction off/0, manual! Or if I'm incorrect, then my offence! What I meant for the handling was it's quite there, close to console quality! To avoid drifts, u need to brake hard before taking the corner and continue braking a little simultaneously while taking the corner! It plays perfectly on my G Pad with Adreno 320! No bugs or lags whatsoever! It's quite there with GT4 or GT5 as u need to be precise with driving and gives u a challenge worth it for a good game unlike others where u play for 2 hours and then delete! Chill man! I didn't mean to offend you in any case!

WP has tons of apps you will have to look hard to find popular apps and games that is not on iOS and Android but not on WP and for the very few that isn't there third party client apps exists. WP doesn't have an app problem, that was in the distant pass. Vine , path, instagram etc are all there. Haters just want to keep WP down.
