Star Wars: Commander

Star Wars fans, this is the chance you’ve been waiting for. In Star Wars: Commander you get to fight with, or against, icons like Darth Vader and Han Solo. First, decide whether you want to fight for the Rebellion or the Empire. Then you train your troops, build vehicles, defend your base, complete story missions, and battle on different worlds. You can team up with Luke Skywalker or plot against Princess Leia. Utilize or destroy AT-ATs, speeder bikes, Wookiee warriors, and stormtroopers. As you improve your strategy in galactic combat, you’ll rise through the ranks as a powerful battlefield commander. And whether the Empire spreads tyranny, or the Rebels restore freedom, the power is with you.

Sonic Dash

How far can the world’s fastest hedgehog run? You’re about to find out by becoming Sonic the Hedgehog in this endless running game. Tap into Sonic’s powers to dodge hazards, jump over barriers, and speed around loop the loops. When enemies get in your way, you’ll defeat them with Sonic’s devastating homing attack. You can power up for advantages such as head starts and ring magnets. And if you tire of endlessly running around as a hedgehog, you can switch roles and play as one Sonic’s good friends – Tails, Knuckles, or Amy.

Crossy Road

Why did the chicken cross the road? Well, the debate’s still out on that one. But in this simple game, you’ll have to get retro, pop-art inspired characters safely across busy roads, tracks, and rivers. You’ll face speeding cars, trucks, and trains. And dodge runaway horses, explosions, low-flying aircraft, and more. Crossy Road is one of the most popular games in the world and it’s totally free to play. But you also have the option of purchasing in-game items, such as new characters like Korea’s PSY, for just a couple of bucks.

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Leap into your dream luxury car and visit 13 exotic locations from Venice and French Guiana, to Iceland and Dubai, while performing mind-spinning aerial stunts at dynamic high-speeds. Asphalt 8: Airborne gives you great graphics and lets you choose from more than 95 high-performance vehicles such as Lamborghini Veneno, Bugatti Veyron, and Ferrari FXX. Each car is powered by a brand-new physics engine, complete with high-fidelity motor sounds for roaring audio immersion. And talking of audio, there’s a great music mix to rev you up for those 360 degree jumps and barrel rolls, we know you’re dying to make.

Candy Crush Saga

Your adventure through Candy Kingdom will take you to magical lands where you’ll meet deliciously kooky characters such as Tiffi and Mr. Toffee. To begin earning points in Candy Crush Saga, you must match three candies. Sounds simple, right? But not all candies are equal. To earn more points and increase your chance of finishing the level, you must match at least four candies to form “special candies” — then use their unique effects. The challenge comes in the form of candy blockers, such as chocolate and licorice, which present obstacles to stop other candies from moving forward. If all this talk of candy is giving you a sugar high, you can power-up, or use boosters to score more points.
