Top 8 Games
1. Hanging With Friends
Zynga’s turn-based take on hangman is now available on Android as well as iOS. Players form a word of 4-8 letters from their set of tiles, then send them to an opponent, who tries to solve it and send back his own word. iOS and Android players can play against each other and players can log in on either device with the same account.
2. Muffin Knight
While this action-platformer borrows heavily from Vlambeer’s PC and upcoming iOS title Super Crate Box, what it does bring to the table is a wireless multiplayer mode. Two players compete to collect muffins, while trying to avoid the enemies. This leads to interesting scenarios where the player with the muffin lead may die first, so the trailing player can try to catch up, lest the enemies take them out. Android and iOS players can play against each other locally over Wi-Fi, though no online play has been implemented yet.
3. Dungeon Defenders: Second Wave
Tower defense games are a dime a dozen, but games that introduce action elements like this one are few and far between. Up to four players can work together to protect the Eternia Crystal from being destroyed. Deploy your individual defenses in conjuction with allies and defend against oncoming enemies. By using GameSpy matchmaking, iOS and Android users can play not only with each other, but with PC and PS3 players as well.
4. Greed Corp
This turn-based strategy game forces players to use the land to their advantage. The hexagonal tiles can be mined for coins which can be used to buy additional units and weapons like cannons that attack from a distance. However, when a tile is mined, it becomes more unstable and eventually collapses, taking the units on top of it with it. Carefully exploiting the land and using it to your advantage and opponents’ detriment becomes key to success. Up to four players across iOS, Android and Mac can play against each other
