Windows Phone Games

Pancake Panic is an interesting Windows Phone game in many respects. The game was developed in one week as a way to help teach primary school students, ages 9-11, in the UK how to code. The developers, Chaos Created, provided these workshops for students in hopes of possibly inspiring them to pursue these skills further.

The goal of Pancake Panic is rather simple, catch as many falling pancakes as possible before time runs out. There are also bonus items available to collect that will improve your chances of bettering your score. Available for low-memory Windows Phones and Windows 8 devices, Pancake Panic comes across as a fun game to pass short bits of time with.

Virtual reality is one of those buzz phrases that has been around for ages, but rarely moves beyond niche technology. One creative way to bring it to the masses is by reducing user cost, and that can be achieved through Google Cardboard.

The Google Cardboard initiative lets companies create cardboard VR helmets with lenses that can be sold for $5 and up. Users then insert their phone into the device, and like a View-Master from childhood, you now have a cheap VR helmet.

We had our first look at Halo: Spartan Strike last October and we're glad that the game is finally available. We'll have a full review coming soon, but we know a lot of you want to see some gameplay already on Windows and Windows Phone devices. You can buy it once and download on both your devices. What's also awesome is that your progress is synced no matter which device you use.

Watch our first gameplay video on a Lumia Icon and a Surface Pro 3.

Momentum Racing is a relatively new Windows Phone game that puts you behind the wheel of a wide range of cars to see how well you can handle the curves and straight-aways of street racing.

The game includes three gaming modes, ten sports cars and plenty of upgrades to give your racing cars a little more get up and go. Momentum Racing is available for low-memory Windows Phones and while it may not be strong enough to knock off Asphalt 8: Airborne but after playing Momentum Racing for the past few days, it's a respectable Windows Phone racing game within its own right.

Xbox is hitting Windows 10 in a big way later this year.

Announced back in January, Xbox will receive a dedicated app for Windows 10, providing Game DVR for all PC games, access to your Xbox One social features and game streaming across devices in your home network. In addition to this, independent developers will be able to include Xbox APIs into their games that appear in the Windows app store via the ID@Xbox program, currently available only on Xbox One.

I caught up with ID@Xbox head Chris Charla to discuss how the program has been faring so far, ID@Xbox for Windows 10 (phones too!), and more!

There are countless Windows Phone games in the Store that are entertaining time wasters. These are the games that are fun and challenging to play but don't require lengthy amounts of time to conquer (or fail).

The game is well suited for those times you need help passing short bits of time and is available for low-memory Windows Phones.

Yesterday, on Reddit, someone found a link to a new Xbox game headed to Windows Phone. The game is called 'What in the World?'. Moreover, it is published by Game Troopers, a relatively new studio focusing on Windows Phone gaming.

Those who tried to download the title were met with a pop-up telling them they did not have permission. This error is because the game is currently testing in a private beta, so there is not much to see (or report). However, from the screenshots it looks like a cross between Trivia Crack and Draw Something with a hint of Wheel of Fortune.

We spoke with Game Troopers about the title to find out a little more about the upcoming trivia game. Here is what they told us.

Hey, Sugar Crush addicts, it looks like King has another tasty update for you Candy Crush Saga fans. While previous updates added levels to the main board, today's 1.50.2 update brings even more levels to Dreamworld aka those alternative levels where Odus the owl acts like a drunkard, always falling off his perch.

According to the game's changelog, Tiffi, the creepy little girl is now a giant while the whale gets smaller. Perhaps more interesting is the addition of 15 more levels to Dreamworld to bring the total up to 620.

Checkpoint Champion is a relatively new Windows Phone game that takes a somewhat unique approach to car racing. The game puts you behind the wheel for a series of grueling 10-15 second challenges.

Available for low-memory Windows Phones and Windows 8 devices, Checkpoint Champion has simple, two-touch controls, 72 challenges to master and daily events. The car selection is rather respectable and game play is surprisingly challenging for such a short race. Add a slightly addictive pull and Checkpoint Champion is a fun title to add to your Windows Phone gaming library.

Second Chance is a Windows Phone game that is a collection of mini-games that you play in five second spurts. The games will test your reaction speed, concentration and powers of deduction. The primary goal of Second Chance is to survive for as long as possible by solving the five second puzzles. Should you fail to solve a puzzle, it will cost you one of your five gaming lives.

The Windows Phone game, available for low-memory devices, has been available in the Store for some time now. We stumbled across Second Chance over the weekend while searching for another gaming title. Second Chance looked fun and we took the free version out for a test drive to see if the game was deserving of the 4.5 Star rating it was pulling down in the Store.
