The original Timberman is now available for Windows Phone too (Digital Melody)

45

One issue in writing reviews in advance is the scene can change right beneath your feet. Case in point with Timberman, a game we reviewed this morning. Timberman is an original game that is popular on Android and iOS, developed by Digital Melody. The game we reviewed this morning is a well-done clone. Late yesterday, Digital Melody released their official version for Windows Phone, and we get caught in the middle. Regardless, you can now head to the Store to get Timberman for your Windows Phone.

AT&T's super green Lumia 1520 finally gets official (again)

143

On Tuesday, late night, we reported that the bright green Lumia 1520 with 16GB of storage was available to purchase from AT&T. However, a few things were odd. For one, AT&T did not announce it and two, it was at midnight when it went live. Some of you then noticed the new green variant disappeared from the AT&T site, and well, you have someone jumping the gun early.

No worries, as AT&T is now making the amazingly bright and massive green Lumia 1520 available for purchase, even alerting the press this time. Even better, local stores in our area are all reporting that it is in-stock and ready to buy, which just put a huge "OMG that is so tempting" hex on us.

The mechanics are simple and the gaming concept easy. The challenge comes with the game's pace, which can easily overwhelm you and send your lumberjack to his grave. Timberman is available for low-memory devices and while there is one navigational bug, the game is a great addition to the Windows Phone gaming library.

The Line Football - a fun little time waster of a Windows Phone game

19

The Line Football is an incredibly simple yet frustratingly challenging time waster of a game for Windows Phone 8. The game is an endless runner styled game where you are challenged to guide a soccer ball down a path, dodging annoying football players and seeing how far you can go.

The Line Football game is available for 512MB devices and while I may the last person to recommend a soccer/football game, it is a game worth adding to your Windows Phone library.

99

Haptic feedback on handheld devices isn't exactly anything new but the folks at Microsoft Research Asia or more specifically, researcher Hong Tan, found that by adding in haptics to add tactile sensations to screens, users could benefit dramatically.

Tan essentially wants to create sensations that people can experience when interacting with their daily objects. Rather than just touching and looking at your devices, Tan would have you interacting with your devices in new ways and have them touching you back.
