The Impossible Path - a memory puzzle game for Windows Phone

16

The Impossible Path is a Windows Phone game that will test your visual memory and ability to steadily trace a path between two points. It is a puzzle game, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

The Impossible Path has over one hundred levels of play that span three difficulty levels. Graphics are minimal and while game play starts off a little on the slow side, it doesn't take long to pick up the speed. After playing the game for the past few days, The Impossible Path comes across as an entertaining Windows Phone game to pass the time with.

Tetra Lockscreen app gets unpublished from the Windows Phone Store

221

Tetra Lockscreen, one of many apps in the Microsoft Garage project, has evidently been removed from the Windows Phone Store. The app infamously did not work on the Lumia 1520, due to an incompatibility bug that was being worked on, but for other phones like the Lumia 830 it worked just fine.

Reports started coming in early February that the app had gone missing, but some of it appeared to be regional or specific phone related. However, now it seems that for all Windows Phones, the app is indeed gone.

Microsoft gears up for online Band sales again as preorders go live, shipping in 2 weeks

190

The Microsoft Band was meant only be a platform demonstration device for Microsoft Health ( read our analysis here). As such, Microsoft never intended to take on FitBit and other fitness wearables. There was only one problem: people really like the Microsoft Band.

Online orders for the Band have been offline for weeks, if not months now. Microsoft Store availability – the physical ones – is much better, but most US citizens still do not live in driving distance of one.

We are proud to report that Microsoft is finally getting stock back online, with preorders for those who signed up via email getting first dibs.
