Best new Android, iPhone and iPad games for June 2013

Best new Android, iPhone and iPad games for June 2013
June has come and gone bringing us the usual dose of high-quality apps for Android and iOS. We are seeing more complex and graphically-intense titles arrive on mobile platforms and it’s an absolute joy to see how quickly console grade games are appearing in application stores.

Right before the end of the month we saw one of the most popular racing games of all times, Colin McRae, arrive for iPhone and iPad, but the majority of new releases gracing application catalogs were mobile-exclusive titles.

You get the usual variety in genres - from puzzlers to action games. We loved the logical thinking required by games like Bridgy Jones, and endless runners like Despicable Me were a great way to kill time.

As always, we have summed up the best new Android, iPhone and iPad games right below. We are looking forward to your opinion about them and feel free to also chip in with your favorites in the comments section below.

Most of these games are only on iOS. What's wrong with these developers... Android is still a profitable platform. I don't know why they just don't develop concurrently for both platforms. It's not like hardware fragmentation is what it was 2 years ago. There are many competent handsets that aren't just produced by Samsung. LG, HTC and Sony have all made excellent strides.

Yeah but even paid android games and apps are easily available for free as apks on some websites whereas in iOS users have to jailbreak which is not as easy as enabling unknown sources and installing apk. Devs profit more on iOS than android.

That is a myth. Anyone that would go to the trouble of side loading an app on Android would do it for IOS. There are a lot of us that would pay for quality and PA has posted articles on Android v. IOS sales that favor Android very well.

Victor, victor, victor.. Always the iOS fanboy. Sighhh.. To think there's a lot of nice new games in the Play Store lately that are far better than what you put in this silly "best" list. But NO, you just have have to assert your fanboyism for Apple right? Why can't you just put two separate articles for each OS?
