Windows Phone Games

There are plenty of Windows Phone games with potential lining the Store shelves. These are often game titles with a solid concept but ones that fall a little shot on execution. Dog Up is an endless runner game for your Windows Phone that has you piloting a hot air balloon through a maze of obstacles with the goal of collecting as many floating bones as possible.

Dog Up is available for low-memory Windows Phones and is one of the many games that have potential. As is, the game is a challenging and well drawn up title but it just needs a little something, something to push it over the edge.

German developer Handy Games has brought several solid games to Windows Phone, including Aces of the Luftwaffe, SPS Football, and 1941: Frozen Front. Even though most of those titles are free to play, they all look and play very nice. They also have a game called Stage Dive Legends that stars a rock-and-roll playing Confederate soldier, for some reason.

We now have another Handy Games title to look forward to, as the developer has informed us that Devils & Demons will soon be coming to Windows Phone. Devils & Demons is a fantasy-themed strategy role-playing game with highly detailed character art. And to celebrate the game's impending release, all in-app purchases in 1941: Frozen Front (also a strategy game) are half off until the end of the week.

Doties is a minimalistic Windows Phone game that will test your speed, concentration and patience. The goal is simple - drag matching colored dots to the colored center dot. The challenge with Doties is that the center dot will randomly change colors.

Available for low-memory devices, Doties is a colorful time waster of a Windows Phone game that has a certain level of appeal. I see it being a nice option to pick up from time to time when you need a little help passing short bits of time.

You're Fired! These are two words you really don't want to hear from your boss. It's also the title of a ridiculous game on Windows Phone that you probably shouldn't play in front of a disgruntled coworker. You play as Jerry Canned who wants to burn down the office after being fired. It's essentially an endless runner. Run as far as you can with gas containers without tripping into desks, fans, or drawers. It's a free game, so there's no harm in trying it out.

Dragon Mania Legends is an entertaining city builder game from Gameloft where you build up your city, breed dragons and battle neighboring Vikings. The Windows Phone game was updated today to version 1.1.0.15 to add a few more gaming features but most noticeably increases the cost of playing the game.

There is no change log listed in the Windows Phone Store for this update but if you install the game and tap the Gameloft symbol in the upper right corner of the screen you can find the changes listed under News.

Back in September of last year, we saw the release of Star Wars: Commander, one of the many game franchises trying to cash in on the Clash of Clans phenomenon. Since then, we have seen much in the way of updates, unlike Age of Empires: Castle Siege.

However, today a nice update has gone out. Besides adding new features, those with 512 MB phones can now get in on the action too as the game has been optimized for low memory devices.

Balloon Sucker is an arcade styled Windows Phone game where you are challenged to match colored balloons that are rising from the ground with the matching colored cloud. The concept sounds easy but the balloons are not always cooperative.

Available for low-memory Windows Phones, Balloon Sucker has potential and may only be held back by an annoying full-screen ad. We were tipped on the game and after playing it over the past few days, Balloon Sucker comes across as a decent Windows Phone game.

UNWYND is a relatively new Windows Phone game that has you tackling a series of puzzles where you have to include or exclude a series of colored boxes. The interface is simple and only requires a few swipes to solve each puzzle. However, finding the right solution may not be as easy.

UNWYND has over ninety puzzle levels spread across three chapters and while the game takes a few tries to get the hang of, it can be a real head scratcher. Available for low memory Windows Phones, the only real downside to UNWYND is the lack of a trial version.

Swappy Colors is a Windows Phone game where you have to re-order colored pins into matching groups. You will have to shift the pins around the game board, re-organize them so that only the same styled pins are grouped together. The goal sounds simple but you are racing the clock to see how fast you can solve the puzzle. When the dust settles, your times are compared to others on a worldwide leaderboard.

Available for low-memory Windows Phones, Swappy Colors will test your concentration, speed and ability to sort objects. We were tipped on the game and after playing Swappy Colors over the past few days, it comes across as a fun Windows Phone game to pass the time with. I'm just not sure how well it can hold up to marathon gaming sessions.

Every game publisher has its strengths, and many of them have their niches – particular things they focus on as well. European publisher Game Insight practically owns the city building genre on Windows Phone, having released numerous entries like 2020 My Country, The Tribez, and Big Business Deluxe. Of course they all vary in theme, and sometimes quality.

Lucky for fans of the genre, Game Insight has just released one of its best city building games on Windows Phone and Windows 8: Transport Empire. In Transport Empire, you'll manage a network of trains, ships, and airships (but mostly trains) as they travel across a fictionalized Europe to deliver goods and reap profits. If you like trains, this free to play title is worth a look.
