Inchy, an endless jumper (of sorts) Windows Phone game

28

Inchy is a very simple Windows Phone game where you help guide a little iguana up the screen. You do so by stretchy Inchy's tongue out to latch on and travel from platform to platform. The design is simple and while Inchy could be described as an endless tongue Windows Phone game, it may be better to just call it an endless jumper.

The game is available for low-memory Windows Phones and while there is a certain amount of appeal to Inchy, the game is likely better suited for shorter gaming periods. The game is challenging and the graphics are nicely drawn up, but Inchy is a little too one dimensional for marathon gaming sessions.

Weekly photo contest: Filters

The weekly photo contest is back with a new theme and a new week to show off your best work. This time around we're asking to see your best efforts with filters. Those weird and wonderful effects that helped make Instagram so popular can be a great way to simply and effectively make your photos take on a whole new life.

Like the shot up top. I took this relatively pleasant, if somewhat uninteresting scene while catching 5 minutes after a press conference at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. But with a little goofing around in Camera 360 Sight it became (or so I think, at least) something worth keeping. So, as ever, read on for the full rundown on this weeks contest and to see who won last week's!

10tons is best known for its casual games like Sparkle 2, King Oddball and Tennis in the Face.

With dozens of weapons and perks to unlock, several game modes and tons of blood to spill, Crimsonland is an exciting release for genre fans. Read on for our full review of the Windows Phone, Windows 8, and Steam versions of Crimsonland – complete with video review.
