7 New Games Just Released for Chromecast

Now that Chromecast has taken the title of top-selling media streaming device and held onto it for well over a year, game developers absolutely have to take Google's $35 streaming stick seriously. As a result, we're starting to see big-time media and game companies throw their hats into the proverbial Chromecast ring, with new interactive offerings that pair your smartphone and your big screen in spectacular fashion.

Just today, Google announced 7 new Chromecast games from Hasbro, Ubisoft, and Rovio—and they're all designed with Chromecast users in mind first, which means gameplay takes place on the TV and your smartphone or tablet serves as the controller. If you'd like to try out any of these new games—which range from classic family board games to modern action thrillers—head to the list below for iOS and Android download links.
