Based on the film by Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale, The Dark Knight Rises is a third person action game with stunning graphics and an amazing soundtrack.
In The Dark Knight Rises we will use as main weapon kicks and punches to knock our enemies with a fighting system intuitive and dynamic, but if this is not enough Batman has an arsenal of gadgets to overcome the most difficult obstacles.
The scenario of our epic battle will be the city of Gotham, always dark and dangerous, full of thugs and powerful enemies.
We will have dozens of missions, as well as random events as hostage situations, bomb patrols, jailbreaks and persecution to prove you’re the real protector of Gotham.
The Dark Knight Rises requires Android 2.2 or higher and can be downloaded from Google Play.
6 – ZombieWood
The zombies are more alive than ever as they are fashionable! The number of productions coming out about this topic is really impressive and Gameloft would not be left out.
That’s why we have ZombieWood, an arcade/action game in isometric perspective where we have to shoot our way through endless hordes of zombies and other gruesome monsters.
The theme of the ZombieWood is the classic: an apocalypse causes the dead to rise up and want to eat the brains of the living. However, in ZombieWood we will get in the paper of a stuntman who will star precisely a zombie movie directed by a crazy director.
The weaponry of ZombieWood is quite broad, ranging from simple dual pistols or shotguns to rocket launchers and chainsaws. We may purchase special powers and surprises within levels as bonus Defense. We can gain experience and gold within the game to progress or we can buy in the store banknotes real money to buy the best.
The gameplay is very simple as we only have two buttons, the character’s movement and to aim and shoot, an action that will do during most of the game.
The Android version required for ZombieWood varies by device and can be downloaded for free from Google Play.
5 – The amazing Spider-Man
As its name implies, The Amazing Spider-Man is a game based on the movie released in 2012 directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. This game has a similar plot to the film and offers a huge city to explore with graphics that are the best.
The Amazing Spider-Man is a third person action game that offers great dynamic not only in the fights but also in the character´s movements through the huge Manhattan which is divided into 5 districts: Central Park , Business, Centre, Harbour and the residential area.
To circumvent the more than 25 missions will have to go rocking the swing through giant buildings with stunning graphics. Its gameplay is very convenient because we only have 4 buttons so the fighting and displacement of Spider-Man is very intuitive and fluid.
With superb graphics and open-world scenarios, is no surprise that The Amazing Spider-Man requires 2GB, so you must take into account the space we have in our device and also especifiaciones the same as it is quite heavy.
The Amazing Spider-Man can be downloaded from Google Play and requires the Android version required varies by device.
4 – Wild Blood
One of the newest titles released by Gameloft is Wild Blood, a third person action game located in a fantastic medieval times where we have to handle large and heavy weapons to make us step through a endless number of demons and enemies.
Wild Blood puts us in the shoes of Sir Lancelot, noble knight whose lady is kidnapped by the very King Arthur who is under the influence of Morgana, the evil sorceress. On our journey through Avalon we will have the invaluable company and assistance of Sir Gawain, a knight of the roundtable.
Its graphics are the best we can find in mobile devices because Wild Blood is the first title released by Gameloft to feature the powerful Unreal Engine 3. The effects of lights, shadows and character and scenarios details make this game a unique experience.
As for the gameplay I must say that the title is also the best, because not only will have the classic moves but we must also perform special actions to interact with objects in the scene as doors.
The ambience is also first class as we have a really slick soundtrack that surrounds us in a world of epic fantasy.
Wild Blood is a heavyweight title (1GB) that I recommend playing with devices which are above the core processors at 1000MHz. Requires Android 2.3 or higher and can be downloaded from Google Play.
3 – Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation
Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation is a first person shooter that is visually outstanding, has a soundtrack that resembles any Hollywood movie-action, and the surround sound make this game a unique experience.
In the style Call of duty for its cooperative gameplay, Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation puts us in the shoes of a Marine who will have to overcome various obstacles offering an impressive war experience.
The 13 levels of the game will take us from Los Angeles to Pakistan, and we will have various game modes such as escort, destroy, helicopter or 4X4 hunting.
Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation has a really fluid and comfortable playability, and is the closest I can find (always bridging gaps mouse + keyboard) to a computer FPS.
The Android version required for Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation varies by device and weighs 1.37GB once installed. I recommend playing with large screen devices (if it is a tablet better) and have good hardware (dual core or higher). Can be downloaded from Google Play.
2 – Asphalt 7: Heat
Asphalt 7: Heat is, in my opinion, the best racing game I have ever seen to date. If you like racing, this is the game for you.
Everything in this title is wonderful, cars, scenarios, missions, the graphics, the soundtrack. It’s really some of the best that Gameloft has released.
In Asphalt 7: Heat you can feel all the speed and the best visual effects of the Asphalt series. In this new release, you can drive more than 60 vehicles from the top manufacturers among which are found Audi, Lamborghini, Bugatti or Aston Martin, and others.

The Android version required for Asphalt 7: Heat varies by device and can be downloaded from Google play.
1 – N.O.V.A. 3
Undoubtedly Nova 3 is one of the most popular games of the moment, and probably the one that has the best graphics. This first person shooter is the third installment of the futuristic franchise N.O.V.A. and has some aesthetic similarities to the famous PC title Halo.
As it could not be otherwise, Gameloft is the developer of this brutal title that with its graphics will surely leave you speechless. Nova 3 has a main mode that maintains a narrative thread that continues from the first delivery but you can play it without problems as we will have an introduction at the beginning. Also has an online multiplayer 6v6, 6 game modes, 6 maps and the ability to share vehicles with multiple partners.
Nova 3 is the undisputed best shooter of the moment and Gameloft´s best title; once you try it you will know exactly what I’m talking about. The variety of enemies, the details of the scenarios, the frantic action and the music make this title the king!
I recommend playing this title with large display devices and dual-core processors or above. Weighs 1.7GB and requires Android 2.2 or higher.
You can download it from google Play.
