Everything you need to know about alliance wars in Royal Revolt 2

49

Royal Revolt 2 from Flare Games is one of the best raiding games on Windows Phone and Windows 8. Whereas most raiding games feature somewhat casual strategic attacks on opponents, Flare's take goes a different direction. Every raid is full of action, with the player directly running through other players' levels and attacking their troops and defenses head-on. I've been playing it daily for over a year, which speaks to its amazing addictiveness and fun factor.

Earlier this week we reported that Royal Revolt 2 had been updated to support Alliance Wars, an exciting new feature. Alliance Wars have finally gone live, and the Windows Central Alliance is right in the thick of things. Read on to learn how Alliance Wars work and find out how you can join our site's official alliance!

Windows 10 build 10061: Everything you need to know

136

On Wednesday, Microsoft released a new preview of Windows 10 (build 10061) to the fast lane with a lot of changes since build 10049. However, it's only a minor improvement of build 10056, which leaked outside of Redmond's headquarters several days ago.

Instead of listing what's new in Windows 10 build 10061 since build 10056, we're going to be looking for the new official changes since build 10049. That will give Windows Insiders a better picture of what's going on.

6

This week's Windows 8 myAppFree deal is an interesting combat game where you take on the role of gladiator fighting for your life in the arena. The twist is that you are chained to a partner and have to work together to battle your way to victory.

The Windows 8 version normally runs $2.99 and there is also a Windows Phone version that typically runs $.99. Neither version has a trial and if you've been sitting on the fence about picking up Enterchained, now is your chance to save a few bucks. Over the next twenty-four hours, you can pick up Enterchained, through the myAppFree campaign, free and being a universal title when you pick up the Windows 8 version you can grab the Windows Phone version free as well.

Following yesterday's report, Comcast has pulled out of talks to merge with rival Time Warner Cable, announcing today the company has terminated all agreements. The deal is off.

Comcast originally announced the deal to merge with TWC back in 2014, which was valued at $45.2 billion in stock. The merge was met with criticism from not only the general public but government officials (namely the FCC) too. Today, the merge finally caved in, with Comcast CEO Brian Roberts confirming in a statement that the deal is off and the company is moving on.

Word Lord – a simple but fun Windows Phone word game

8

No argument here. There is a vast selection of word games available in the Windows Phone Store and many of them are entertaining, enjoyable and addictive titles. Word Lord is a fairly new word game offering that hopes to join the ranks of the must have Windows Phone games.

The game is basically a hidden word game that has two gaming modes and three boosters to help you along the way. Graphics are minimal and in playing Word Lord for a short time, it comes across as a fun word game to pass the time with. Word Lord is available for low memory Windows Phones.

With Build coming next week there was never any chance we'd hear about new products here, but in passing he did at least give a massive tease that "new products and services" will be discussed in San Francisco.
