Windows Phone Games

Last week we broke the news that Gameloft would be updating Order & Chaos Online for Windows Phone at long last. In the same story, I mentioned that the publisher also has plans to update some of its non-Xbox titles to include Xbox features. We named Asphalt Overdrive as one game that will be switching to Xbox-enabled, but also promised there would be more.

Today the first game in the "more" category has become an Xbox Windows Phone title: World at Arms! A military-themed city building game with a strong player-versus-player focus, World at Arms is even more enjoyable with Xbox Achievements. It's free to play and compatible with 512 MB RAM devices, to boot. Read on for our detailed impressions of the newly-enhanced game.

2 Cars is a fast paced Windows Phone game that could drive you a little crazy. It's a racing game where you have to control two cars at the same time collecting certain targets and avoiding others.

Controls are simple, game play plenty challenging and 2 Cars does have a slight addictive quality. We were tipped by several readers about 2 Cars and after tinkering with the game for the past few days, it comes across as a decent time waster of a game for Windows Phone.

Octagon is an endless runner styled game for Windows Phone where you are tasked with guiding a ball down an endless, eight sided tunnel. The game has simple controls, colorful graphics and we found Octagon to be a fun way to pass the time.

Normally the game runs $1.99 but today through the myAppFree deal, you can pick up your copy up for free.

Microsoft recently reported that Windows Phone and Windows 8 games and apps generate 2.5 times more revenue during the holiday season. In that report, the big MS spoke to game makers Game Insight ( Cloud Raiders) and JoyBits (tons of crappy Doodle God games) about their experiences with the platform.

Game Insight in particular reported some impressive results, such as the fact that three of the company's titles: Cloud Raiders, Airport City, and Big Business Deluxe are in the top 10 best-selling games on the Windows Store. Game Insight titles have been installed more than ten million times across Windows Phone and Windows 8.

What's next for Game Insight? Windows Central is proud to exclusively announce that Game Insight will soon be releasing Transport Empire and Flower House (both free and with 512 MB RAM support) on mobile Windows platforms. Read on for more details!

Windows Central Roundup: Top Rated Windows Phone Action/Adventure Games

Casual gaming on your Windows Phones has its merit. Word and puzzle games can have a laid back feel that can help you pass the time and exercise your brain. While there is a certain appeal to the slower paced games, we all need a little fast-paced action from time to time. Enter the Action/Adventure aisle of the Windows Phone Store.

For this week's roundup, we combed through the Action/Adventure section of the Windows Phone Store and pulled out five of the higher rated games from the Store's shelves. Some are more action packed than others but all should appeal to our need for strategy and action gaming. For added measure, I'll add a few personal favorites that you may want to try as well.

Last year, Gameloft unleashed the first and only Xbox-enabled MMORPG on Windows Phone: Order & Chaos Online. While Order & Chaos Online is basically a World of Warcraft clone, it's also an utterly massive and compelling game – especially for a phone game. If we had a game like that on Xbox consoles, I'd never leave the house (and now we kind of do, thanks to Onigiri).

Unfortunately, Order & Chaos Online suffered from a few frustrating bugs like uncompletable dungeons and unpurchasable pets, not to mention graphical glitches on the Lumia 1520. Gameloft last updated the game in August 2013, just before deciding to drop Xbox support on its Windows Phone and Windows 8 titles.

Don't despair! Windows Central is proud to announce that Order & Chaos Online is not only going to be updated next week, it's also launching on Windows 8 and RT – with Xbox support. Read on for exclusive details on the update and Gameloft's future plans for Windows Phone and Windows 8.

Windows Phone has more than its share of raiding games nowadays, but my favorite continues to be Royal Revolt 2 from Flare Games. Back in September, the game received a major update that added single-player campaign stages for players to enjoy in-between attacking each other. The game was updated last week, and today it got another update. The most important feature of these two updates: alliances.

Yes, Royal Revolt 2 now has social features that allow players to form alliances (clans), work towards common goals, and chat with each other. Naturally we have a Windows Central alliance that we'd love for you to join. But why should you join an alliance, and how does it all work? Whether you're a new or returning player, our in-depth look at how the game's alliance system works will help you get the most from Royal Revolt 2's latest game-changing feature.

Kaboom Monsters has a slightly casual game pace that has its fair share of challenges.
