We’ve played our share of side scrolling endless runners, but Alto’s Adventure is definitely special, on account of going the extra mile to deliver superb artwork. We played it on the Allview X3 Soul, aka the locally integrated version of Gionee S6 and had a blast. Launched in February 2015 on iOS, the game feels like an artsy Ski Safari...

Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories was a game I played on the Huawei Nexus 6P, back when I was testing the phone and back when the game’s price had been reduced by quite a bit.

Door Kickers Review (Lenovo Phab Plus): As Close to SWAT Tactical Action as the Smartphone Takes You (Video)

I’ve had the chance of playing the game SIEGE from Ubisoft at the same time with Door Kickers and that was excellent, because they go hand in hand.

Rayman Adventures is the third big Rayman title exclusively made for mobile by Ubisoft and available for free in the Play Store.
