Mobile game developer Gameloft has announced that some of its games are now available on sale in celebration of Thanksgiving. These iOS and Android games include The Amazing Spider-Man, Gangstar Rio: City of Saints, BackStab, The Adventures of Tintin: The Game, Tom Clancy's Rainbox Six: Shadow Vanguard, and N.O.V.A. 3: Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance.
The Android games on sale
The special discounted price for The Amazing Spider-Man and BackStab are available on the iOS App Store (The Amazing Spider-Man and BackStab), the Amazon Appstore for Android (The Amazing Spider-Man and BackStab), and Google Play (The Amazing Spider-Man and BackStab). Gangstar Rio: City of Saints is available on the iOS App Store and Google Play, The Adventures of Tintin: The Game is only available on Google Play, Tom Clancy's Rainbox Six: Shadow Vanguard is only available on the iOS App Store, and N.O.V.A. 3: Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance is only available for the special discounted price on the Amazon Appstore for Android.
The Amazing Spider-Man is a licensed game that is based on the movie that was released earlier this year. The game follows the same storyline of the movie, where you have to stop the Lizard's rampage.
Gangstar Rio: City of Saints is an open world action game, much in the vein of Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series. The game puts you in Rio de Janeiro where you can either go on rampant murdering sprees, or follow the storyline in the missions.
BackStab is a story of betrayal and revenge. The gameplay looks similar to that of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series, where you are let loose in an open world with the ability to free-run your way on rooftops, as you stalk and take out your target.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Game is another movie tie-in game that was based on the movie released last year. The game puts you in the shoes of ace reporter Tintin as he unravels the mystery behind the ship - the Unicorn.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard is based on the world created by Tom Clancy and expanded upon by the previous Rainbow Six games. The game is a tactical shooter, where you have to manage a squad through different scenarios.
N.O.V.A. 3: Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance is an FPS set in a sci-fi world. The game takes place four months after the events of N.O.V.A. 2 and has been well received by gamers and critics for its gameplay.
Back in October, Gameloft had announced 12 of its titles for Windows Phone 8 devices.

While Windows Phone 7 has been out for quite some time now, it has been facing a drought of quality game titles, and by the look of things, Gameloft won’t let that happen with Windows Phone 8.
