Best new Android, iPhone and iPad games for April 2013

Best new Android, iPhone and iPad games for April 2013
Each month we pick the best games out of Android’s vast Google Play store and the Apple App Store, and in April we’ve had one of the releases in quite a while.

This time the boom happened in all sorts of genres - we have some awesome platformers, racing games, classical game remakes and even a unicorn game.

So if you’re still looking for an excuse to enjoy the first weeks of spring outside, you have plenty of them.

If we had to recap some recent trends, we’re definitely noticing that while earlier Apple had a time advantage in getting games, this is largely gone and most games are now getting released for both Android and iPhone at almost the same time. And that’s great, isn’t it? Check out our picks for the month below and let us know which are your favorite ones in the comments below.

"Android, iPhone and iPad games"..why not say iOS games?

Some games are for iPhone only and some are for iPad only

Since some games require IAP (In App Purchases) to be played after a few levels, like I've read about DH4, the "Free" label can be misleading. Listing if a game offers IAP, may help... as well as listing if a game can be played without IAP, would also be a great help. Just a suggestion. :)

If it's a good game and it's free you can expect it's freemium.
