Windows 10 games are fantastic ways to lose track of time with, and Gameloft offers a wide assortment of great titles that fit this bill rather nicely. The Gameloft collection includes intense combat games, high-speed racing games, endless runners and more.
All of them share quality graphics, easy controls and challenging gameplay, and it is hard to find a bad gaming title in Gameloft's portfolio. While we wish Gameloft had continued support for Spider-man Unlimited, there are plenty of quality games still on the Store's shelves. Let's take a look at the best games that Gameloft has to offer for Windows 10 PC and Mobile!
Updated April 24, 2017: We made a few changes to this article based on new releases, reader input and staff debate. There are some new titles in the mix, as well as those that we continue to view as the best from the Windows Store.
Gameloft offers two amazing racing games for Windows 10. For the fans of concrete tracks, there is Asphalt 8: Airborne and if you prefer a little more dirt under your wheels, it doesn't get much better than Asphalt Xtreme.
Available for Windows 10 PC and Mobile, this free racing game delivers more than 30 monster off-road racing machines that range from Dune Buggies to Rally Cars and Monster Pickup Trucks. Each can be customized and upgraded with earnings won during races.
Asphalt Xtreme has plenty of gaming with five game modes, more than 400 career events, over 500 mastery challenges and real-time multiplayer racing. Global racetracks include the dunes of the Nile Valley, the jungles of Thailand and the industrial steel mills of Detroit.
The gameplay experience is fantastic on the smaller screen of a Windows 10 Mobile phone or Windows 10 PC tablet, where you can take advantage of tilt-sensor steering. Just be careful not to lean too much into the turns and fall out of your seat. Overall, Asphalt Xtreme is a must-have for racing fans or anyone looking for a wonderfully animated game that is full of entertaining challenges.
Modern Combat 5: Blackout
Gameloft offers a handful of combat oriented games in the Windows Store and Modern Combat 5: Blackout is one of two such titles that made our list. Modern Combat 5 is a first-person shooter that includes a single-player campaign and a multiplayer mode where you can create a squad to take on rivals online.
Key features of Modern Combat 5: Blackout includes:
- Seven customizable classes of players that include Assault, Heavy, Recon, Sniper, Support, Bounty Hunter and Sapper.
- A vast armory full of assault rifles, sniper rifles, handguns, explosive and other weapons that can be customized and upgraded.
- Fast-paced story missions that take you from Tokyo to Venice.
- Spectator Mode to let you sit back and watch the battle.
Modern Combat 5: Blackout has easy to use, on-screen controls for movement, point of view and weapons fire. The Windows 10 game has three control layouts that can be customized from sensitivity to various auto controls (auto-crouch and auto-shoot). While the game is available for Windows 10 PC and Mobile, it requires a touchscreen device.
The graphics are solid, full of detail and give the game a Call of Duty type feel. Modern Combat 5: Blackout plays out nicely on the small screen of a Windows 10 Mobile phone, but a larger tablet screen pulls out the detail of the action a lot better.
Modern Combat 5: Blackout is a free Windows 10 game and is a blast to play.
Dragon Mania Legends
Dragon Mania Legends is a wonderful time waster of a game where you breed, raise and battle dragons. You are tasked with rebuilding Dragolandia, raising your dragons to battle enemy Vikings and their dragons.
Along with a storyline that includes hundreds of battles, Dragon Mania Legends includes daily challenges, tournaments and special events to tackle. There is also a resource management element to the game, where you build farms to feed and upgrade your dragons, and a wide range of habitats to house them.
Dragons are elemental based with combat being turned-based. With over 200 species of dragons to breed, you can create a formidable army to match dominant dragons against weaker dragons. For example, a dragon with water skills is stronger against fire elements but weaker against plant elements.
Dragon Mania Legends includes a social element, with "Clans" to create or join with your Facebook friends, and a messaging system where you can chat it up as you battle dragons.
Dragon Mania Legends is a free game with several in-app purchase opportunities. The game is available for Windows 10 PC and Mobile, and by logging into the game with your Facebook or Microsoft account, game progress can be synchronized between devices.
Gods of Rome

You can recruit Zeus, Hades, Vulcan, Atlas, Cleopatra, Anubis, Athena and others. Each fighter can be upgraded with items earned during battle or picked up through in-app purchases to increase their attack strengths and defensive capabilities. Gods of Rome has four game modes that include a chapter-based Story Mode, Alliance Events, Player vs. Player matches and time sensitive Special Events.
Combat is a one-on-one battle with simple, gesture-based controls. Each character has special attacks that can be deployed for additional damage points, and these battles can be rather intense and fast paced. It's easy to get steam rolled by an opponent if your attention strays in the slightest.
I cannot say enough good things about the graphics quality of Gods of Rome. The detail of the graphics and animations help set this free Windows 10 game apart from other fighting games. Gods of Rome is not only a fun game to play, but a joy to watch.
Zombie Anarchy is a fun Windows 10 game featuring the walking dead that offers a nice blend of defensive and offensive challenges. The game has you leading a group of rag-tag survivors of the zombie apocalypse, determined to save their city from the undead.
The free combat-strategy game has you seeking out zombie strongholds to defeat and pillage for supplies, rescuing survivors to build up your army and your base camp defenses to thwart zombie attacks and attacks from other gamers.

Zombie Anarchy includes a nice strategy element in which you can scout out your enemy targets and deploy troops accordingly to make the most of each team member's skill set. Graphics are top notch with plenty of detail, and the controls are simple to learn.
