Revers9, a mildly frustrating (but in a good way) Windows Phone puzzle game

16

Revers9 is a new Windows Phone puzzle game that challenges you to arrange a set of numbers in order before time runs out.

There's really not much to Revers9 but the game will test your reflexes and speed at solving number puzzles. The game can get mildly frustrating as you race to get the numbers in order but in a good way. Available for low-memory Windows Phones and Windows 8 devices, Revers9 isn't a bad title to add to your Windows Phone gaming library.

Windows Phone Collection: Fun Runners

Windows Phone Central Gaming Roundup: Endless Runners

Endless runner games can be a rather addictive choice of Windows Phone games and can help you pass short bits of time or longer gaming sessions. There is no shortage of this genre of games in the Windows Phone Store and this week we turn our sights on the Windows Phone Store Collection that showcases a little over two dozen of the endless runner games.

The Fun Runner's collection has several well known gaming titles such as Despicable Me: Minions Rush, Subway Surfers and the Temple Run titles. For this week's roundup, we are going to highlight four titles in the Collection that you may not have heard about.

We have two games that are played from the "over the shoulder" perspective, one that is laid out in platformer style and one that is played from a first person point of view. While each game approaches things a little differently, they all have the same underlying goal, run as far as you can.

Wheel of Words, a puzzling word game for Windows Phone and Windows 8

7

Wheel of Words is a Windows Phone word game that has potential but is in desperate need of a design overhaul. The concept has you spinning a wheel, which randomly generates a word from an assortment of categories.

The word is conveniently missing a few letters and it is your job to fill in the blanks. The challenge comes into play with a game timer that you have to race in completing the word.

Available for low-memory Windows Phones and Windows 8 devices, Wheel of Words is an interesting game but a cluttered, distractive game layout with the Windows Phone version significantly holds the game back.
