More than a decade later, King of Dragon Pass is now on Windows Phone

65

King of Dragon Pass (a-sharp.com/kodp) is now on Windows Phone. Originally a computer game published in 1999, it was updated for iOS in 2011, and then ported to Android just a month ago. Now, Windows Phone gamers can start playing it too. If you prefer graphically intensive games, this might not be for you. King of Dragon Pass focuses more on the story. As a clan leader, you have to make decisions based on various needs of survival and prospering, as well as manage the problems presented by your surrounding or clan members.

The official trailer gives you a good idea of what to expect in this game. Go watch it before you decide to buy the game for $11.99. Nope, that's not a typo.

Windows Phone Store Collection: Indie Game Spotlight

Windows Phone Central Roundup: Indie Games

While some may see things differently, the Windows Phone Store has plenty of quality games on the shelves from major software developers such as Gameloft, EA Sports, Disney, Ubisoft and Microsoft Studios. Along with the major studios, the Store has a fantastic collection of games from independent studios.

While these gaming titles may be from the little guy on the block, they often can hold their own up against the major releases. These games are addictive, entertaining, challenging and are highlighted in the Indie Game Spotlight Collection in the Store. The Collection features forty gaming titles and for this week's roundup, we've plucked four games that should appeal to most.

Flat Out, a fast paced time waster for Windows Phone

11

Got a few minutes to burn? Like fast-paced Windows Phone puzzle games? Then you need to check out Flat Out in the Windows Phone Store.

The game is simple to pick up but may drive you nuts trying to master it. Flat Out challenges you to trace a circle within a sequence of gems by connecting gems of the same color. Sounds easy on the surface but you are racing a clock and the circle patterns aren't always obvious.

Available for low-memory devices, Flat Out is an appealing, somewhat addictive Windows Phone game that can help you pass short bits of time. Heck, it might even stand up to longer gaming sessions.

118

File this headline under late-breaking, but Citi Cards (online.citibank.com) has finally released their popular app for Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 users. According to our forums, Citi started exploring building an app for Microsoft's platform 11 months ago, and today, it is live and ready for download.

Citibank is currently one of the top credit card and financial institutions around, and Windows Phone tends to have a gap when it comes to official banking apps, especially in Western markets. Bringing 128-bit encryption the Citi Cards app lets users log in and fully manage their accounts without using the web browser.

Rogers Lumia 830 demo units show up ahead of Canadian launch

182

A few weeks back it was announced that the Canada would finally be picking up a new Lumia, specifically the Lumia 830, after what seems like an eternity of no interesting Windows Phones. Although we knew Canada was getting the new Lumia 830, the carrier and release date was a mystery. Today, we now know at least one of those, the operator.

Rogers is the lucky – and perhaps obvious – candidate for the Lumia 830 and indeed, stores are evidently already putting dummy demo units out for customers to take for a test ride. Reader of the site Mike R. swung by his local Rogers and found this Lumia 830 demo unit available for some public fondling. In the photos that Mike supplied us, you can see some of the Rogers marketing material behind the Lumia 830.
