Asphalt Overdrive for Windows Phone – Our first impressions

128

Last week, we broke the news that Gameloft's Asphalt Overdrive would soon be launching, which it did just a few days larer. Asphalt Overdrive is a new take on the Asphalt series, with simplified controls and endless races. It's still just as fast and beautiful as you'd expect from an Asphalt game though, with plenty of familiar series touches.

Overdrive is free to play like Asphalt 8, and a much smaller download (though it downloads more data after you launch it). It works on all Windows Phone 8 devices, but it does require a constant internet connection. Read on for some quick impressions and our hands-on video, and then be sure to try it for yourself and join the WPCentral gang!

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.
