Windows Phone Games

If you are a fan, nay, an addict of Candy Crush Saga, you may notice a small update coming to the store today. Version 1.50.1.0 is now live in the store, up from 1.45.2.0, which came out in early March.

Some have noted that the changelog references 15 new levels and something about Detective Dachshund. However, our more savvy readers will remember that those features came in the March 2nd, just over a month ago.

No Escape – Lasers is a relative new Windows Phone game that joins the ranks of a crowded field of endless runner games available in the Store. No Escape tries to set itself apart with a somewhat unique game style/orientation for this particular genre. No Escape is played in vertical orientation as opposed to the more traditional horizontal view.

After receiving a few tips on No Escape and how challenging game play can be, we decided to take it out for a test drive. No Escape – Lasers is available for low-memory Windows Phones and after playing the game for a few days, it comes across as a decent game to pick up from time to time. I think it may struggle as a go to game but don't be shocked if it takes you some time to see a double digit score.

ULTRAFLOW is a Windows Phone game that may drive you nuts. The puzzle game has you trying to bounce a ball through an obstacle course, eventually land in a hole. While the concept sounds simple in that you have a limited number of bounces to sink the ball into the hole.

Graphics are minimal and game play is challenging enough to make you grit your teeth and pull at your hair. The 99 levels of play will test your sense of aim, patience and just the right touch to bounce your way to victory. Available for low-memory devices, ULTRAFLOW is a fantastic way to pass the time.

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.
