Best new Android, iPhone, and Windows Phone games of March 2015


April has knocked on our doors with an endless bombardment of jokes - some clever and others not so much - and after all of the euphoria has settled, it's time to take a look at something that is exciting and has nothing to do with jokes. This selection of the best Android, iPhone, and Windows Phone games of March 2015 are no joke: they are serious business.


We've had a pretty stellar month when it comes to new game releases. Dungeon Hunter 5 tops our list of favorites, but it was a very tough decision as many other awesome new games fought for our attention. We won't spoil it - you can find them right below. What we do observe once again in March, though, is that iOS remains the go-to platform for game devs, with some of the hottest game still available first and, so far, only on iOS.


Windows Phone is getting a few games, but it is a very distant third, lacking much of the excitement of the bustling gaming scene on iOS and Android. Hey, the few games that are available there are not all that bad, though. For the complete list of the best new Android, iPhone and Windows Phone games of March 2015, take a look right below.
