Connect 4 and Risk no longer Lumia exclusives, available to all Windows Phone owners


It's always great when Nokia exclusives are no longer upheld and other Windows Phone owners can subsequently enjoy more available content. Today we've been alerted to both Risk and Connect 4 becoming available for not only Nokia Windows Phones, but other handsets too. Both titles are very popular, with the former picking up a number of favourable reviews.

We've reviewed Risk, if you're interested in checking the war game out. We'll not run into both games as they're both well-known and are old favourites. You can download Risk ($2.99) and Connect 4 ($0.99) from the Windows Phone Store. Both run on Windows Phone 7 and 8. Thanks, Guilherme, for the tip!

Connect 4 and Risk no longer Lumia exclusives, available to all Windows Phone owners


Risk is such a great game that is almost ruined by no online play. So many board games add without online play. To the people who make them: did you play these games alone when you grew up?

I'll gobble you up like a hungy hippo.  Don't trouble yourself, I'll destroy you like a battleship! Shoot, I'll climb the highest ladder and jump down and scrabble your brain. I'll rock'em and sock'em till you've....you've....aw, nevermind, this sucks.

Other than fully reset the phone, you can't. Its just auto upload to SkyDrive makes a copy of everything you upload and hides it away. That is 'Other', or at least some of it.

Love Risk, beside I agree without multiplayer it becomes boring.

Try also Civilization Revolution if you like strategy games (of course don't expect PC version)

I only wish they would make an HD version of that game. The resolution is lackluster even on WP7 hardware.

Great game either way,

Or not...
Something happened, and you can't get apps from the website at the moment. Try again in a little while.

Picked up Risk. The acheivements screen in Risk is kinda buggy on the 8x, but I love Risk and the rest of it is great. :)

I can't personally recommend either of these games for fun. I can for achievements however. Risk is pretty boring with no online capabilities, and connect 4 is just that. Connect 4 against a CPU. And it is very laggy in the menus which makes it even worse to play. If u were desperate for a game, I would say go for risk!
