Avengers Assemble with RJS! for Windows Phone 8

Run, Jump, Smash! landed in the Windows Store last month and the Windows Phone 8 version was released this past weekend as the abbreviated title RJS! The game is an endless runner where you guide a team of Marvel Comics superheroes across an obstacle course filled with obstacles and enemy minions.

Your goal is to advance far enough to fight super villains such as Loki. Superheroes can be upgraded or additional characters unlocked with the coins you collect as you run through the game. Graphics are rather nice, game play challenging and possibly the only downside to RJS! is the lack of a trial version.

22

BoxTV (www.boxtv.com) is an online video service in India, which serves the latest Bollywood, Hollywood and regional movies, TV shows and premium video content in one place. Essentially, the service from Times Internet fills a critical void due to the absence of services like Hulu and Netflix in the region.

While the official apps for other platforms have been available for a while, the Windows Phone app makes its debut now. From our friends at Times Internet, we also hear that a Windows 8 app would be ‘coming soon in few weeks.'

Join the public beta for Booklet, a unique way to browse Facebook

66

A few weeks ago Facebook launched a new app called Paper. As of right now it’s only available for the iPhone right now, not iPad, Android or Windows Phone. Which is pretty disappointing considering many folks who have played it Paper prefer it to the official Facebook app on iOS. We probably won’t see Paper for Windows Phone anytime soon, but we do have a new app that offers a comparable experience for those wanting Paper. Booklet is a new app for Windows Phone that’s worth checking out. So let’s check it out.

Rayman Fiesta Run now available to all on Xbox Live for Windows Phone! [Updated]

101

It was nearly a week ago when Rayman Fiesta run showed up for Windows Phone…in India.  Users who tried to download the game elsewhere were greeted with an error message, noting that it was not available in their region.

Luckily for us, it is now live, at least here in the US and UK and we’re guessing your region too. The game runs for $2.49 and there is no Trial listed. Lame! We’re buying it anyway, because it’s Rayman. Those games have always been awesome, so we’re taking a leap a faith here. Plus, Xbox Live, baby.

Update: The game quickly disappeared from the Store again and is no longer available to buy. Bummer!
