Cross Platform Games Roundup: iPhone vs. Android

Here’s a collection of games that are cross platform, will allow you to play mano-a-mano against Android users. Somewhat surprisingly, all these games are best in their class, and made by some of the top mobile developers around.

Skies of Glory

Skies of Glory is a World War II dogfighting game that allows you to shoot down the communist Android users from the comfort of your iPhone. The gameplay is quite good and the graphics are very impressive. There is a huge selection of planes and a variety of game types to choose from. The single player offers many missions if playing online isn’t your thing. It is free on the iPhone, and $4.99 on the Android Market. (This is probably because the App Store version uses downloadable content to make money.)

Skies of Glory features a robust list of multiplayer options for WiFi and Bluetooth play. Host 8 player simultaneous combat over a single WiFi network. Synch up over Bluetooth for one-on-one action. Use any 3G or WiFi signal to connect up to 8 players from around the world.
