Best New Game Apps in 2018 for Android and iOS
Several of the top games dominating in the market right now seems to be classics with new and improved animation. And we’re not just talking about better saturation but striking visuals that are almost distracting to the game itself, in a good way.
1. Alto’s Adventure
An Editor’s Choice, Alto’s Adventure is one of those classic race-against-time types of game that everybody loves to forget time with. It’s about a man skiing (and almost flying) down snow-capped mountain slopes, trying to escape a dooming avalanche.
Combined with its epic music and backdrop of muted mountains, the game is almost therapeutic to play. For a few minutes (or an hour) you almost forget you’re running away from a deadly storm but having fun a nice time skiing down a picturesque mountain. It’s a classic man versus nature game that you can’t go wrong with.
2. Pako 2
With its adrenaline pumping music, Pako 2 is one of the top racing games right now on Android and iOS. Essentially your role in the game is to pick up and drop off people while the cops are hounding you down both on the ground and from the air. It’s a pretty simple cop and robbers game that puts you in the driving seat to roam around wherever you please. What makes it extra fun, however, are the little bonuses they hide everywhere for you to find.
Players get to drive through various terrains like the desert, the mountain, and the city. Players who love this game say they enjoy its classic arcade style graphics and addictive music.
3. Game Dev Tycoon
Want to test out your business skills as a game developer? Much like in real life, in Game Dev Tycoon, you’ll start as a game developer in the 80s. You’ll start by working from your bedroom and earn your way up to an actual office. You’ll get to experience the process of creating your own games, hiring and managing staff, global app testing, being scrutinized by the gaming industry and all the things that real game developers have to face every day.
Afterall, there are no rewards without risks and this is what Game Dev Tycoon is all about.
4. Uncivil War TCG

You can play alone against the computer or you can test your skills against other players online. Each battle lasts a few minutes.
The unique combination of history and strategizing needed for this game makes it one of the most interesting new game apps today.
Hearthstone is a fantasy battle card game based on the Warcraft universe. It’s been highly rated consistently throughout the years and it’s not going anywhere. Hearthstone does a great job coming out with expansions regularly to keep its audiences on their toes.
In the game, you take on the roles of the heroes and battle your opponents using spells, Minions, and weapons.
