Game Insight delivers The Tribez and Flower House for Windows 8 and RT

30

Game Insight, the king of city building games, has just released two new titles for Windows 8 and RT. First up, The Tribez (which already launched on Windows Phone awhile back) is now playable on tablets and PCs. The Tribez is a city builder set in a prehistoric fantasy world.

Secondly, Flower House (which we exclusively announced in December) has just launched on Windows 8 and RT as well. While Flower House plays a bit like a city builder, the focus is actually on growing, breeding, and collecting a huge variety of flowers and other flora. Both games are free to play. Read on for our impressions!

Poll: Are you planning to buy a Raspberry Pi 2?

140

The weekly news cycle kicked off with a bang with the huge announcement that the newest incarnation of the Raspberry Pi will be capable of running Windows 10. The Raspberry Pi 2 ups the ante on the hardware front from its predecessor with a quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM and an upgrade to ARM v7 which allows it to run an OS such as Windows.

It's not going to be the full fat Windows 10 we'll be running on an Ultrabook or something like the Surface Pro 3, instead a customized version delivered as part of Microsoft's IoT developer program. But at just $35 for the basic hardware and a free copy of Windows 10 there's bound to be a lot of interest. So, are you planning to get one?

Freaking Sign, a math puzzle game for Windows Phone that can drive you nuts

17

If you hate math puzzles, do not try Freaking Sign. It is a Windows Phone game where you are challenged to solve basic math problems and determine the relationship between the two solutions.

Sounds easy but you only have three seconds to decide if the relationship between the two values are greater than, equal or less than. Don't let the minimalistic layout or simple equations fool you. As the Windows Phone Store description states, "Freaking Sign can make you freaking mad!".

Freaking Sign is available for low-memory Windows Phones.
