Windows Phone Games

I love FIFA 15 on my Xbox One, but I haven't found a great football (soccer) game on Windows Phone until now. It's called Stickman Soccer. You won't find realistic models of your favorite players or fancy tackling animations here. This is a simple, arcade-style soccer game that plays really well on mobile devices. Watch our Stickman Soccer gameplay on the Lumia 1520.

One can argue that you cannot have enough word games in the Windows Phone Store. There are plenty of addictive word games in the Store and Words! hopes to join the ranks of the must have titles.

At the core, Words! is a Find-a-Word type puzzle game where you are given a collection of words and you have to find those words in a field of jumbled up letters. What helps Words! stand out a little is two gaming modes, two theme styles and a boatload of puzzles. Available for low-memory devices, Words! may not be everyone's cup of tea but if you are in search for an appealing word game to add to your Windows Phone gaming library it is worth a try.

Does Outlast give The Evil Within and Alien: Isolation a run for their money in creepiness? You'll have to tune in to find out!

The stream has ended, but you can still watch the whole thing right here. I was not prepared for Outlast's beautiful 3D graphics and overwhelming sense of dread. Give it a watch and you might hear me freak out once or twice. Congrats to the winners and everyone who joined us for the live stream!

Wouldn't it be awesome if Microsoft were to offer Titanfall, all of its available DLC and even the Season Pass for future content, for just $12.49 (or £10 if you're in the UK)? It's a good job the company has done just that with this serious sale on the Titanfall: Deluxe Edition to get even more players online and into their own Titan.

Tales from the Borderlands is a brand-new episodic adventure game set within the Borderlands universe. A collaboration between Telltale Games and Gearbox Software, Tales is the most story-driven Borderlands game yet. Players can grab the episodes individually as they are released, or opt for a season pass to get all five episodes for a little cheaper. The first episode is already available on Xbox One and Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and 4, and PC and Mac, with the Android and iOS versions sometime thereafter.

To celebrate the launch of Tales from the Borderlands, Telltale Games recently held a premiere event at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Richardson (Dallas), TX. This marks the first time a game has debuted at the renowned movie theater chain, and we were lucky enough to attend. Read on for my impressions of the Tales from the Borderlands Episode 1: Zero Sum reveal event and the game itself!

Bobo is a simple time waster of a game for your Windows Phone where you have to help a mystical creature navigate its way through a mysterious forest. You guide Bobo up and down the screen to avoid various dangers as he floats endlessly through the forest.

The game's graphics are a little on the dark side, but matches nicely with the mood of the backstory. Game play with Bobo is simple but not without challenge. Available for low-memory Windows Phones, Bobo may not be a game to sit down and play for extended periods, but for short spurts, it might not be a bad title for your Windows Phone gaming library.

My Friend Spooner is a Windows Phone game that fuses the storyline of a comic book with a platform video game. You join three amigos, Husk, Tent and Spooner, on an adventure searching for hidden treasure and avoid dangers along the way.

Available for low-memory devices, My Friend Spooner is another project supported by Microsoft's App Campus and an entertaining title to add to your Windows Phone gaming library.

It started out as a mini-game inside Project Gotham Racing 2 for the original Xbox but Geometry Wars has grown since then to become a well known stand alone game franchise on its own. This week, the arcade shooter series gets a new installment, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, from UK-based Lucid Games. It's being published by Activision as the first game under their revitalized Sierra brand, which will be dedicated to launching smaller, downloadable titles.

Geometry Wars 3's biggest feature is that it uses 3D grids for the first time, as players control their ship and combat a variety of enemies with different power ups in its unique retro art style. The game is out this week for the PC, Xbox One and Xbox 360 platforms, among others. We got a chance to ask some questions, via email, to Lucid Games co-founder Craig Howard about their work on Geometry Wars 3.
