Fhotolens in the works, brings a fish-eye view to Windows Phone 8

11

Fhotolens is a new Windows Phone 8 photography app that is currently in the early stages of development.  It is the creation of the developers who bring us Fhotoroom and is a camera app that has an interactive, fish-eye lens effect.  Fhotolens’ results go beyond the bubble effects filter by using very accurate coding that reflects curvature to the lens, giving things a more realistic fish-eye effect.

We have gotten a sneak peak at an early beta version of Fhotolens and while there are some bugs still to be ironed out and a few additional features to be added to the mix, it makes a nice first impression.

Anodia, a brick-breaker styled Windows Phone 8 game

Anodia is a Windows Phone 8 game that has the feel of a brick breaker styled game but loses the traditional feel with the variety of targets you are called upon to destroy.  You do not have a series of bricks to destroy but instead you have to take out light bulbs, hanging lamps, groups of bouncy balls, and more.

The game has over one hundred gaming levels, over twenty different power-ups, and if you are a fan of the brick-breaker styled games Anodia is worth a try.

Aztec Antics emerges on Windows Phone 8 with MOGA controller support

25

Windows Phone has been slow to pick up some of mobile gaming’s heavy hitters – though the promise of Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas coming next week is certainly a big step in the right direction. Still, many of the most unique and interesting mobile games come from smaller developers instead of the big guys. Windows Phone is making great progress with indie game makers, as evidenced by the developers we interviewed at Casual Connect who are preparing to dip their toes into Microsoft’s mobile waters.

Yesterday we reviewed BigBot Audio Drop, and today we bring news of another just-released indie game for Windows Phone 8: Aztec Antics from Bouncing Ball Limited. Not only does Aztec Antics sport some terrific retro-style pixel art, it also features MOGA controller support! That makes six MOGA-enhanced games on Windows Phone 8 and counting.

Head past the break for our Aztec Antics hands-on video and the developer’s video guide for setting up a MOGA controller with Windows Phone 8!

Popular Android game Yeti on Furry launches on Windows and Windows Phone 8

25

Yeti on Furry, a popular tower defense game on Android, has just been released simultaneously on Windows, Windows Phone, and iOS! You tap and swipe on the screen to defend the Yeti from invaders climbing up the mountain.  These evil climbers will work their way up the mountain from either left, right or bottom of the screen in waves and with different skill sets. You have to get rid of them. We previously mentioned this game as Yeti Rising back in our August coverage.

Windows Phone users usually wait a while after an app or game launches on iOS or Android, so we’re glad the developers were able to release it on multiple platforms in the same day. Head past the break to watch our gameplay video on the Nokia Lumia 1520.
