Check out a new game for Windows Phone called Crash and Smash where you play as a cat, destroying anything in the apartment while the owner is away. The goal is to knock as many of the owner’s possessions onto the floor as possible in one minute.

Head past the break to watch our gameplay video.

Congratulations to Fhotoroom on 4 million downloads and counting!

60

Only a handful of apps have been in the Windows Phone Store for years. The number of those apps that continue to get consistent updates is even smaller. Fhotoroom is one of those apps that has been around for a very long time, but still gets regular updates that fixes bugs and add features. We first reviewed Fhotoroom over two and a half years ago in January 2012. Today we’re not talking about an app update for Fhotoroom, instead we’re giving them a little congratulations for hitting some impressive milestones with Windows Phone and Windows 8.

Love or loathe Windows Phone devices with 512 MB RAM?

354

We’ve seen this a lot here at Windows Phone Central - passionate debates in comments whenever a post mentions a game that can’t run on Windows Phone devices with 512MB RAM. We also know that Nokia Lumia 520 with that low amount of RAM became the sleeper hit for Nokia last year, and has been the best-selling Windows Phone device across the board.  

I spotted this thread on Windows Phone Central forums about the same, and wondered why these devices get all the rants despite their irrefutable success.

Popular zombie card game Shelter gets updated and goes free

23

Shelter is a popular zombie game that has elements of a collectible card game as well as a castle defense game. In the game, you need to work your way through the city, battling zombies, in an effort to be reunited with the woman you love. As you go along, your card deck grows and the challenges increase.

Shelter is not your typical zombie game, and the combat is more strategy oriented than action packed. You are defending against the zombie onslaught through a card game and not running around shooting them. Unlike most card games though, the game offers deep and challenging gameplay that gets very addictive.

Nokia Treasure Tag Mini WS-10 is half the tag the WS-2 is

115

If you looked at Nokia's diminutive Treasure Tag WS-2 and said "I like the idea, but that's too much of a thing", then the Treasure Tag Mini WS-10 might just be the Bluetooth beacon for you. It popped up recently with nary an announcement from Nokia, and it's a little 'un. Measuring in at the same 30mm x 30mm face, the Treasure Tag Mini is nearly half the as thin (5.8 mm vs. the full size's 10mm) and less than half as heavy (6.2g vs. 13g). It's a darned light and little tag, but with that save bulk you lose some features.

Mini Motor Racing, small scale racing for Windows Phone 8

79

Mini Motor Racing is a relatively new Windows Phone 8 arcade styled racing game with quality graphics and challenging racecourses. The cars remind me of those miniature RC cars and there are plenty racing car styles to unlock. Add over three-hundred races to win with two racing modes and Mini Motor Racing will not grow stale too quick.

The game has seen decent success over on iOS and based on what we've seen, Mini Motor Racing should see similar here on the Windows Phone 8 platform.

AE Cap Mania, a bottle cap matching game for Windows Phone

19

AE Cap Mania is one of the more recent releases from AE Mobile for Windows Phone. The game is a match-3 styled game but instead of working horizontally or vertically to create the matches, you are moving puzzle pieces diagonally and vertically.

You have your customary bonus caps that will help you reach your gaming goal with bonus rounds scattered about to keep things interesting. AE Cap Mania is a well presented, casually paced Windows Phone game and not a bad option for your gaming library.
