Metro 2033 is a Windows Phone strategy game based on the Dmitry Glukhovsky's novel Metro 2033. The story behind the game places you in a post-apocalyptic world where global powers have unleashed their nuclear weapons, forcing thousands underground to survive.

The Windows Phone game has you gathering resources to survive, rebuilding communities and battling mutants throughout the metro system. Metro 2033 Wars is available for low-memory devices and has over 170 metro stations to explore and over 70 missions available to tackle.

VLC has been updated once again, with the media player sporting a series of UI fixes. Connecting to Last.FM is easier, and those on devices with on-screen navigation buttons like the Lumia 735 will not see back buttons within the app. Previously, VLC crashed when a particular file was not found, an issue that has been rectified in the latest update.

Having made a name for itself on Android, iOS and the web, wildly popular podcast app Pocket Casts is now officially part of the Windows Phone stable.

Now, Shifty Jelly, has brought it to Windows Phone for the first time. It was teased a short time ago but as of today it has officially launched in the Windows Phone Store. And it's a good 'un.
