5.Best game: Clash Royale
The spin-off of the popular game Clash of Clans took the prize this year. It is a multiplayer game as addictive as the original. Clash Royale is a simple yet complex game: we have two players, each with a base and weapons, and mission is to conquer the opponent’s base. The attacks are real time, so our speed to attack and defend is important, and also includes successful concepts from other games, like cards or magic. Something quite different from Clash of Clans, but still drinking from their influence. Currently the game is available in a handful of countries.
The creator of Clash of Clans, Supercell, has several hit games in his repertoire as Boom Beach, but had not tried to use the success of Clash of Clans to support the launch of a game. That changes today because Clash Royale is a multiplayer game in real time using the existing universe of Clash of Clans since its launch.
Freely available for Android and iOS.

7.Best startup: Hopper
The app analyzes the best prices for travel and predicts when they will change to be cheaper. It is Hopper, an iOS and android application that allows us to find ticket prices between cities, see what time of year usually cheaper, and find tickets for this year. Some of these features already found in meta search-engines like Kayak, but the interesting thing is that all of Hopper searches can be done easily.
