My Top Time Waster Games for Windows Phone

Windows Phone Central Gaming Roundup: Time Waster Games

While our Windows Phones can be tremendous productivity devices, they are also fantastic entertainment devices. From watching movies, listening to your favorite music files or playing games your Windows Phone can help you pass the time.

This week's roundup we'll stray from the top rated lists in the Windows Phone Store and approach things from more of a personal angle by highlighting five current gaming titles on my Windows Phone. Games that I have found to be great time wasters.

These titles are entertaining, challenging, downright fun games to get you through ten maybe fifteen minutes of time. Time we all face while waiting for a table at the restaurant, sitting in carpool line, patiently waiting at the DMV or any other situation where you need a distraction to make time move a little quicker.

As a bonus, most of these games can easily stand up to longer gaming sessions if you prefer.

While the concept sounds easy, the puzzles will make you scratch your head. Some puzzles have move limits, some have timers and some take on a more casual pace simply requiring you to turn on all the lights.

Available for low-memory devices, Circuits is an attractive puzzle game that is definitely worth trying.
