Best new Android, iPhone and Windows Phone games for August 2013

Best new Android, iPhone and Windows Phone games for August 2013
August was a mind-blowing month for mobile gamers. Asphalt 8: Airborne blew our minds with its high-paced arcade racing action, Plants vs Zombies 2 launched on iOS and it is another instant tower defense classic, and the legendary Contra: Evolution launched on Android and iOS.

Even god-forgotten Windows Phone gamers saw the light at the end of the tunnel as Gameloft announced it will bring its 15 hottest titles to Microsoft’s mobile platform.

If we had to sum up the platform situation as per games, iOS is still getting the new titles first and with a timely advantage. Despite Google’s advantage in the pure quantity of apps, it seems Apple still gets major developers’ attention first.

All in all, though, this month we are seeing some amazing games arrive to mobile. Feel free to check them all out below and let us know which ones you like the most in the comments below.

Yet another Xbox live arcade game on something other than Xbox live. And its a good one too. You'd think microsoft would be able to get Xbox live games on Xbox for wp8. Games have gotten better for windows phone, but they are still quite pathetic in choice and diversity compared to IOS and android.

Are you serious? the only reason I clicked on this was to see how windows phone was keeping up by having Halo: Spartan Assault. Of course phone arena left it out. thanks. its the best exclusive Wp8 game that also came out in Aug and you FAILED to show it.

I am sure it was not Victor's intention to make you mad, bro. Your beloved game on your beloved platform was released on July 18, 2013 in North America. If you were talking about Verizon's end of exclusivity period for the game access, which took place in mid August, then you are better off enjoying it in your time-out corner.

I'm not mad lol.. I'm not really a phone gamer but since the game just came out it should be on the list. Yes Verizon had it for a month before I got it on att but I don't remember it making the list. Rarely does any wp8 app or game make the list ( with agreed understanding) but there are some and they should be recognized. Now I'm going to my time out corner

I have no quarrel with victor. Just sad about the game not being up. It wasn't on last months article. It's not on this month. So.......where is it? Is what I'm thinking.
