We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
With the recent dearth of full-blown AAA games, we figured it'd be a great idea to take advantage of the free time and play some indie games. One of the games that immediately caught our attention was Monaco: What's Yours is Mine.
One of the biggest names in mobile gaming, Gameloft, has been working on a new game for quite some time now. The game, titled Wild Blood, will be making its way to the iPhone, the iPad, and Android devices with the hardware to support the game. The company has recently released a trailer that shows off the gameplay and combat mechanics of the upcoming game.
Much of the trailer seems to be one guy hitting a variety of enemies with different shiny and colourful weapons. The game seems to in a very action role playing game (RPG) style, with combat similar to that seen in the Fable series, or more recently, the Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
Earlier this month, Gameloft finally got around to releasing the latest game in its popular Asphalt mobile racing game franchise for Android. The latest game, titled Asphalt 7: Heat, was available for iOS devices from the second half of June, and now Gameloft has released it for its Android counterparts.
