8

Lightomania is a lively Windows Phone puzzle game that has you bouncing and shooting fuzzy little creatures where they can gobble up a hanging light. You'll bounce the fuzzy creatures off each other and navigate around an assortment of obstacles and dangers to get to the light bulb.

Available for low-memory devices, Lightomania is full of colorful animations and challenging puzzles to conquer. The game has seen a fair amount of success on other platforms and in playing Lightomania over the past few days; I can see that success carrying over to the Windows Phone version.

Adventures of SlingCat pounces on Windows 8, now a universal game

14

Earlier this year, Pixel Chat Games and publisher The Secret Service Inc. released a charming endless runner/platformer for Windows Phone called The Adventures of SlingCat. Windows Central's own George Ponder was impressed with the game's cartoon-like graphics and array of distinct levels (always a plus in endless runners).

Fast forward to today and SlingCat is back, this time on Windows 8 and RT. Not only has the Adventures of SlingCat recently prowled onto tablets and PCs, it's also a universal purchase. Buy the Windows Phone or Windows 8 version and you'll get the other version at no additional cost. The game runs great on my Surface Pro, its large screen showing off the hand-drawn artwork and variety of animal characters. Read on for full impressions and hands-on video!
