Cross platform word game Ruzzle gets bumped with Notifications and stats for Windows Phone

29

Ruzzle, the popular word game akin to Boggle but with the ability to play with friends across iOS and Android, has managed to get a decent update today. Version 1.1 is now live in the Store and brings Toast Notifications and user stats for your game history.

Boasting over 35 million players, the game was first launched on iOS back in March 2012, later going to Android and finally landing on Windows Phone 7.x and 8 devices just over two weeks ago. Much like Wordament, the game involves users trying to find words in a grid of letters, scoring higher points for larger, more complicated ones.

LinkedIn gets its yearly update but no new Windows Phone 8 features

20

LinkedIn is admittedly one of the nicest looking apps on Windows Phone. It’s also an invaluable tool for professionals, where it acts like a more sophisticated Facebook but for job history (and less photos of silly babies).

The app though hasn’t had an update since its initial release, way back in May 2012. So here we are on the cusp of its anniversary and we’ve been blessed with version 1.1, which is now live in the Store. The fact that it now works well with no connection issues is the good news. The bad news is there’s nothing else for us to say about the app as no new features have been added, as far as we can tell.

Rumor: Microsoft looking to add more tiles to Windows Phone for even larger displays

166

We've already covered rumours of Microsoft looking to add 1080p support for Windows Phone later this year with the GDR3 update (this is all before the anticipated "Blue" update), but now the company may well be addressing the larger real estate issue that will occur with Live Tiles. Should you own a Samsung ATIV S, the three columns of tiles can appear to be rather limited at times, but Mary Jo Foley from ZDNet has learnt that the Windows Phone team is looking at a solution - to add more tiles.

Play GameBoy and GameBoy Color games on Windows Phone 8 with VGBC8

72

Classic gaming fans love emulators because they allow us to revisit beloved older games on the hardware we own now. And if you enjoy emulation on Windows Phone 8, you’re probably familiar with the work of indie developer M.k. He has already provided us with two fine emulators: Snes8x (a Super Nintendo emulator) and VBA8 (a GameBoy Advance emulator).

VBA8 is great for dudes and dudettes who want to play GameBoy Advance games on their Windows Phone 8 devices, but it doesn’t run original GameBoy and GameBoy Color games. Well, now we can finally play those games thanks to M.k’s release of VGBC8, the first Windows Phone 8-specific GameBoy/GameBoy Color emulator.

Read on for screenshots and our full impressions or watch the video!

Bookmark this: Starting Windows Phone game development with Unity

7

One of the bigger news coming out from last summer’s Windows Phone 8 reveal was support for game engines – like Unity. It allows game developers to easily target multiple platforms if their particular engine is supported there. Unity is one of the more popular engines at the moment, with support for nearly any platform you can think of. Right now game developers can get early access to the beta of the Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 versions of Unity.

Want to jumpstart to Windows Phone 8 and Unity?
