Windows Phone Games

Windows Phone puzzle game lovers will be pleased with this week's myAppFree deal. It is Dwelp, a connect the dot styled puzzler that is not only available for our Windows Phone but the game is also available for Windows 8 devices.

The game has you linking similar colored dots that are scattered about on a gaming board. You aren't racing the clock but the fewer moves it takes to connect everything, the better. Normally Dwelp is priced at $1.99 in the Windows Phone Store but through the myAppFree deal you can pick it up for free. As an added bonus, being a universal app, you can also pick up the Windows 8 version free as well.

Windows Central Roundup: Cute Monsters Collection

Monsters are often at the center of video game and the titles in the Windows Phone Store is no exception. More times than not the monsters play the role of the villain (often misunderstand) in such Windows Phone games as Evolved: Hunter's Quest or Halo: Spartan Assault.

However, there are occasions where the monster plays the central role in games - sometimes the hero or just the unexpected participant. The Windows Phone Store has put together a small collection of Windows Phone games that feature monsters in a non-adversarial role. The Cute Monsters Collection in the Store is a small gathering of games where the monster isn't looking to destroy civilization.

We've pulled a few of the titles from this collection to highlight in this week's roundup.

Grand Theft Seagull is another endless runner installment to the Windows Phone Store that has you guiding an pesky seagull down city streets. You duck, dodge and avoid a wide range of dangers that includes cars, pedestrians, wrecking balls and more.

Oh and you get to shoot poo at various targets as you soar down the street. Grand Theft Seagull is available for low memory Windows Phones and has a slight level of appeal. Unfortunately, while the game tries to stand out from the crowded field of endless runner games, it falls a little short of the mark due to annoying ad-support.

Pirates and Dragons is a relatively new Windows Phone game from MissinGames, an AppCampus alumnus. The game has an arcade, maybe even an endless runner feel where you pilot an airplane across thirty levels of game play, battling pirates, dragons and other creatures as you hunt down treasure.

While the game has a slight casual pace it doesn't lack in challenge. Graphics are well drawn up and in playing Pirates and Dragons over the past few days, it comes across as an addictive, entertaining Windows Phone game.

Slingpin is an arcade styled Windows Phone game that puts an entertaining twist on the game of bowling. Instead of rolling your bowling ball down the lane to knock the pins down, with Slingpin you shoot your bowling ball from a slingshot.

To add to the challenge you have obstacles to bank your shots around, barriers that have to be destroyed to get to the pins and laser beams to avoid. Slingpin has over seventy levels of play that are spread across four difficulty levels. Available for low-memory devices, Slingpin may not be the most action packed sports game in the Store but it is a fun way to pass the time.

We have heard rumors over the weekend that Gameloft was dropping support for the Windows Phone game Spider-Man Unlimited. Updates have been pushed out for the iOS and Android versions but, to date, nothing has been seen for the Windows Phone version.

Searching the various Gameloft social networks did not help bring anything into focus and our first thought was the delay could simply be an issue with the Windows Phone Store certification. Instead of jumping the gun, we reached out to Gameloft to see if they could shed any light on things.

While we will see a few complaints here and there, for the most part the Windows Phone Store is full of quality gaming titles from independent developers and the larger software companies. One of the more popular companies is Gameloft.

Gameloft's gaming portfolio contains over forty gaming titles, most of which are rated at four stars or better. Sure, you have some flops like Captain America: TWS but for the most part Gameloft's titles are worth having in your Windows Phone gaming library.

For this week's roundup, We've plucked four of the gaming titles from Gameloft's collection that include a war game, city builder, a puzzle game and a Medieval sports game. We'll also toss out a few honorable mentions for good measure and as always, we have the comments ready and waiting for your recommendations.
