My Friend Spooner, a comic book adventure for Windows Phone

21

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.

Graphics are nicely drawn up and reminds me a little of the popular Windows Phone game Dark Lands. Gaming controls consists of a series of screen gestures and each of the fifty-two levels of play are full of challenges to discover the path to get all your characters to the exit.

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.

We chat with the co-founder of Lucid Games about Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

16

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.
