Dungeoneers- fantasy treasure hunting and monster fighting from your Windows Phone

14

If you like Dungeons and Dragons styled games, the Windows Phone game Dungeoneers might be something of interest.

The game is a dungeon exploration game where you create a party of four adventurers from a handful of unique classes .

The game is available for low-memory devices and while I enjoyed playing Dungeoneers, it may take you a little time to get used to the interface and dark graphics.

Microsoft announced yesterday many new features for Windows 10 including details on the new phone OS. However, perhaps the oddest part was in the last quarter where the word 'holograms' unexpectedly came up over and again. Of course, this was the prelude to Microsoft HoloLens, the new Windows 10 hologram powered hardware, due sometime in the near future.

The press was invited to an exclusive look at the lab and working prototypes of HoloLens, including four operating scenarios demonstrating real-world application of the helmet. Unfortunately, photos and videos were forbidden as we even had to check our smartphones in a locker. Regardless, here are my thoughts and experience with HoloLens.
