Windows Phone Games

Definitionado is a relatively new Windows Phone word game that had a crossword puzzle feel about it. Imagine working on a crossword puzzle without the words crossing and just solving the word clues and you come close to Definitionado.

You are presented with clues that define a particular word and a collection of letters that can be used to spell that word. Available for low-memory Windows Phones, the lack of a gaming clock gives Definitionado a casual feel. The game does have hints for the more difficult words, 500 puzzles and a very clean appearance.

After tackling the first dozen word puzzles, Definitionado comes across as a very appealing word game to add to your Windows phone gaming library.

If you have ever had the urge to see how far you can jump a Winnebago, the Windows Phone game Top Gear: Stunt School might spark your interest.

Top Gear: Stunt School is the second official Windows Phone game from the popular television series Top Gear (we also have Top Gear: Race the Stig) that puts you behind the wheel of a vast assortment of cars to see if how successful of a stunt driver you can be. Cars can be upgraded, the graphics are well drawn up and the stunts full of challenge.

The game is available for low-memory Windows Phones and Windows 8 devices. For the most part Top Gear: Stunt School is a fun Windows Phone game to spend some time with but the game is noticeably held back by less than stellar controls.

Although we've recently seen an uptick in Xbox Windows Phone and Windows 8 games from Gameloft, mobile games with Xbox support are still few and far between. Microsoft still pops one out every now and then though, such as Secrets and Treasure: The Lost Cities (developed by Mediatonic).

Secrets and Treasure is a free to play puzzle game that plays a lot like Peggle. After releasing the game in October, Microsoft updated the game a month later with 75 new levels. Sadly, that will be the last update Secrets and Treasure receives. Both the Windows Phone and Windows 8 versions of the game are being delisted later this month. Grab Secrets and Treasure now if you want to play it!

Several months ago we took a look at the Windows Phone game HiLight that is more or less a picturesque game of Simon Says. The multi-level game presents you with a sequence of lighted circles that flash and you have to repeat the pattern by tapping on the circles. You start out with only four lights and slowly build up to levels with fifteen lighted circles.

Available for low-memory Windows Phones, the game was updated a few weeks ago to version 1.0.1219.2, which adds a new gaming mode, new rankings and personal gaming stats. HiLight came across as an entertaining Windows Phone game to pass the time with and the new game mode only adds to HiLight's appeal.

Death Board is a Windows Phone game that has the potential to drive you nuts. It is a game that challenges you to quickly find a matching number before the game clock strikes zero.

While the game concept sounds simple, you only have a few seconds on the clock and it's surprising how long it takes to have four digit numbers register in your brain. I'm not sure how much staying power Death Board will have but for occasional gaming or as a conversation piece, the game should do well.

Available for low-memory Windows Phones, don't be shocked if your score stays in the single digits with Death Board.
