Best new Android, iPhone and iPad games for January 2013
This is our monthly game selection with no other apps included. Go here for the best Android, iPhone and iPad apps of January 2013.

January is over, and it kicked off 2013 with a huge selection of new arrivals in games, right in time to keep you busy during the long wintry nights.

With games like Temple Run 2 and Dungeon Quest that made an entrance in the first month of the new year, there is no time to get bored. And alongside the big titles, there were plenty of games in virtually every genre you can think think of - from puzzles to sports, to adventure and racing.

This time, we’ve widened our selection of the best games for the month simply because there were too many of them, and all managed to live up to the high standards we’ve set for this monthly game pick.

So with no further ado, take a look at the finest games that arrived on the Apple App Store and Android’s Google Play in January 2013.

..240 000, to put it better :)

My point was that the game gets way more credit than deserved, imo

I disagree. Temple Run is a perfect blend of casual and hardcore, it is really easy to play and rounds are short which is good for casuals, but its good for hardcores because it is challenging, fast, and the free 2 play aspects dont cheapen the experience like they do with 99% of the free 2 plays.

And how is that retroarch allowed on the google play store? LOL. I get emulators, but that comes with the games? Has it been pulled yet?

Well I would expect some basic creativity at least.
That doesn't necessarily mean a change in the core of the game.. but just reshaping, refreshing and enriching it.
Angry birds star wars is a good example of that

I agree. The game is garbage. I don't understand the popularity of it. I did the same the first. A simple watching of a video the second told me there was no need to waste my time.
