Google Play and Apple App Store Games Comparison

Reviewed at the newly launched website called Killer Game Deals, the author of the website has conducted several reviews on iOS and Google Play Store applications. These types of games are generally aimed to provide a standing source of entertainment at the right price. In some instances, the games listed in both stores are free however, it does not guarantee that the game work flawlessly on devices. Below will be some of the games noted on the website which may interest players before deciding to purchase them.

Dragon Flight
This is a game hosted in both stores. The only difference in the Google Play store, the game is free and links to a social messaging app called KakaoTalk. In the App store, the game is free and stands alone. Comparing both games on two different devices, the game works best on the iPad. The controls are smooth allowing easier navigation of your character. The game can be played on the iPhone but it is recommended to play on a bigger screen to spot approaching obstacles. When playing the game on an Android device, the controls are not as smooth thus leading to more failed attempts in the game. This game is highly recommended on iPad devices; bigger screen and a clearer view of the game. Also it must be noted that in the App store, players can unlock 2 additional classes for $0.99 each. In the Google Play store, these same characters can be unlocked by purchasing virtual currency in the form of crystals.

Chrono Trigger
This title is a classic by Square Enix. Right now the game was recently introduced into the store allowing fans to download this classic title. The price is equal in both stores. The only difference are the different game controls on both devices. Comparatively, Chrono Trigger worked well on iPhones and iPads before the iOS 6 update. Since the update, the game continues to experience crashes and freezes which was not evident prior to the update. On Android devices, users experience frustrating controls deeming the controls ‘sloppy’ and ‘unintuitive’. Square Enix has still yet to resolve this issue on both platforms.

Fruit Ninja
Fruit Ninja is an enjoyable title introduced in the App store on April 21, 2010.The game made its debut on Android devices however, the reception was not as solid as it was in the App store. Both were priced at $0.99 and the game had a tendency to crash on Android devices and caused the device to overheat after a short period of time. It is recommended for to play this game on iOS devices due to the constant engagement of updates which lacks in the Google Play store.

What Android Apps Should I Get?

You did it! Finally! You’ve gotten your brand new Android phone and now you’re ready to…what? What can you do with this amazing piece of hardware you’ve been waiting to get?

You know a few apps to download based on what your best friend told you. You might take a few pictures or download that hot shot of your favorite actor or athlete. Then what do you do?

If you’re anything at all like me, you’ll waste tons of hours and downloads trying to find the perfect apps for you. You’ll download games because they have one cool screen shot posted in the Android Market and then find out they’re garbage after you’ve started playing them. You might download 15 different picture apps to see which one is the best.

All of this time spent downloading apps robs you of the time you spent downloading, not to mention the time you’ll spend recharging your phone every 2-3 hours because downloads use up a lot of battery life. You’ll go through tons of aggravation trying to get some of the apps to uninstall because the developers don’t really like it when you take their app back off of your phone after installing it. (Every phone they’re not on is money they can’t make after all.)

How do you avoid this? It’s actually fairly easy if you listen to the staff of The Android Apps HQ. They’ve compiled a book full of screen shots and descriptions to help you figure which apps you’ll want to get started with. The book lists the top games, photography, music, and shopping apps for you to download, and it even has a QR Code for every single app in the book to make it easier to get the app to your phone!
