Best new iPhone, iPad and Android games for July 2012
This is our monthly game selection with no other apps included. Go here for the best Android, iPhone and iPad apps of July 2012.

July has come and gone so quickly despite the long days and short nights, but it has left us with a few truly awesome games and if you still haven’t checked out the best new arrivals this month now should be the perfect time. We’ve brought together the best of iOS and Android in one place and this time there is quite a few titles, all of which caught our attention in one way or another.

With the big movie premiers in July, The Dark Knight Rises and Amazing Spider-Man game both climbed to the top of our listings, and they both offer some top notch graphics and excellent gaming experience for both Android and iOS.

Some awesome new puzzlers arrived - Amazing Alex is a game by Rovio, the makers of Angry Birds, and that alone should capture your attention. We also have the brand new Where’s My Perry, building up on Disney’s hit game Where’s My Water.

But the biggest news for Android owners was definitely the arrival of Asphalt 7: Heat on the platform. For just a buck, it’s probably the best racing game on Android. The rest was mostly iOS - tons of new launches as we already said - so check them out below, and don’t forget to let us know about your favorites in the comments section!

Yes, developers start turning away from Android.

They do? Square-Enix has just released two big-hit games on Android, and has a schedule of several more soon to come.

BS Google play is the fastest growing application store on earth. Simply as that. The thing you're looking at is due to fact that most games are being released on iOS first, and then after some time on android.

Yep, quantity over quality, your opinion over user satiafaction polls and piracy over fair downloads. That is the spirit.

Funny how you choose which comment to reply to just like taco. "They do? Square-Enix has just released two big-hit games on Android, and has a schedule of several more soon to come." No response from you? "The thing you're looking at is due to fact that most games are being released on iOS first, and then after some time on android." No comeback for this part? How's living in taco world working for you, must be quite carefree.

Cause i agree with dsDoan and disagree with darac. Simple as that. Dont know much about this iTaco-guy, but it seems he really is a bunch of trouble for you when you try to insult him behind his back.

When you're commenting at a site like this, It's hard to insult anyone behind his back because everything is out in the open. As you were saying, you agree with dsDoan, but disagree with darac. It seems to me that you only disagree with "Google play is the fastest growing application store on earth." but agree with "The thing you're looking at is due to fact that most games are being released on iOS first, and then after some time on android." since you didn't bother to reply on that. If that's the case, Android does have quality apps, just that they get them a little bit after. Android market has quantity and quality, so how does that apply to developers turning away? We could pretty much conclude that developers probably increased compared to rate of those that left.

That's the impression i got after reading the article. I also read a lot of stuff on tech sites saying the same thing. And i posted it here. I'd fully agree with dsDoan, but darac's post made me angry a bit, cause everyone knows why the Play Store is growing that fast - lack of quality control. Ah, yeah, the main thing i wanted to say is actually under this post.

If only the piracy would go away, the Android ecosystem would change drastically, and lure more users to switch 2 Android.

And iOS continues to obliterate Android apps in legal sell rates.

Hi, I would like to add an application that I really liked its name is Rock & Boulder, it has very good graphics, great music and the best is that it allows to use all ten fingers to play!!
