On Tuesday we gave you the Top 10 iPhone games and apps of January 2014, so now it's time to see which Android games and apps scored the most from reviewers around the world. Much to my surprise, one of the most anticipated games to land on mobile, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, did not take the no 1 spot, it did land at no 3 though. Make sure to check out the DU Speed Booster app, it could increase your phone speed with up to 60% Dropcam is another handy app, it enables you to monitor your house remotely.

If you were wondering what the best reviewed Android games and apps on the web last month were, here's the Android Quality Index (Qi) round-up for January to fill you in. The  Android Quality Index boasts over 200,000 scores from the world's best websites, such as Life of Android, Pocket Gamer, and  IGN, and uses a unique metric to create a single definitive score for each Android title.

Top 10 Android games January 2014


GAME NAME         PUBLISHER            Qi 
1 Hoplite Magma Fortress 9.4
2 Mystery Castle HD - Episode 1 Runestone Games 9.2
3 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Rockstar Games 9.0
4 Worm Run Golden Ruby Games 8.9
5 LYNE Thomas Bowker 8.7
6 Blocky Roads Crescent Moon Games 8.7
7 Final Fantasy VI SQUARE ENIX 8.6
8 Myth Defense 2: DF Smartpix Games 8.5
9 Atomic Fusion ByteSized Studios 8.4
10 Detective Grimoire Armor Games 8.3

 

2014 has started with a bang for mobile gamers. Topping an extremely strong January Android Qi game chart is Douglas Cowley's Hoplite, a deceptively nuanced roguelike strategy game with a stripped-back art style. 'Stripped-back' isn’t a phrase that you’d readily associate with Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, however. Rockstar's sprawling open-world masterpiece finally surfaced on Android in January, securing the #3 spot in the process. Down in fifth spot, though, LYNE is one of those classy puzzlers that’s as easy on the eye as it is taxing on the brain. If there’s a prettier way to match shapes, we haven’t seen it. Finally, Crescent Moon Games add a clever progression system and a Minecraft aesthetic to the familiar Trials HD format in Blocky Roads.

Clean Calendar Widget Pro tops January’s Android Qi app chart. And that title SURE is pretty descriptive. This is a crisp, stylish calendar widget to help you remove the bloat from your virtual life. At #2, DU Speed Booster is another apt app title. DU Apps promises to boost the speed of your phone here by up to 60 percent by cleaning out your phone’s unwanted files and managing background tasks. Transit App is clearly going places at #4, meanwhile. This clever app will 'tell' you when the next bus or train is arriving in your current location, and will even plan journeys for you. Keeping its beady eye on things is the maker of Dropcam. With this handy tool, you can hook your Android phone up to your webcam and monitor your house remotely, complete with motion- and sound-sensing alerts.
