Final Fantasy III crystalizes onto Windows Phone 7 and 8

138

On the whole, it’s been a rough year for Xbox games on Windows Phone. Most weeks go by without new releases, and several publishers like Gameloft have stopped publishing their games as Xbox titles. And yet, a couple of new Xbox releases have turned up in the last few weeks: Temple Run 2 and Rabbids Big Bang.

Today another Xbox Windows Phone game showed up out of the blue as something of a late Christmas present for Xbox fans: Final Fantasy III from Square-Enix. This makes the third Japanese role-playing game the publisher has released on Windows Phone, following the first Final Fantasy and Chaos Rings. Final Fantasy III runs on both Windows Phone 7 and 8, but it carries a hefty price tag… Check out our hands on video, impressions, and Store link after the break!

Squirrel is a stellar new Pocket app for Windows Phone 8

53

Pocket is by far one of our favorite services on the web. We’ve covered a handful of third-party Pocket apps and apps that have Pocket integration in the past. It’s a great service that sadly doesn’t have an official app on Windows Phone or Windows 8 yet, but when apps like Squirrel come to the scene it’s hard to imagine what more an official app could really bring to the table. Squirrel is brand new to the Windows Phone Store and it’s a great client for Pocket. Let’s check it out.

Manga-inspired spaceship runner ‘Space Heads’ arrives for Windows Phone 8, powered by Unity

47

Let’s get this out of the way: endless runners are the new weather apps, the new puzzler fad in mobile gaming. They’re free, have great 3D graphics and more importantly, you can play them in under a few minutes. That’s why they’re popular and that’s why we love ‘em. It’s futile to resist (and fruitless to complain).

Space Heads is a new game available for Windows Phone 8 developed by Unity Studios, and yes, even the 512 MB crowd can get in on the action. Take that, Subway Surfers and Temple Run 2.  So why is this game worth your time? We’ll tell you.

Nokia’s improved Lumia 525 priced at $148 (¥899) for China, available now

37

The Lumia 525 from Nokia may build off of the already massively successful Lumia 520. The key difference? It has that 1 GB of RAM. While 512 MB RAM devices have been doing very well for Windows Phone, that limitation on system memory prevents the handset from getting the latest and greatest in apps and games. It’s true that almost every app or game that can’t run on 512 MB of RAM eventually gets updated to do so, but if you want say Temple Run 2 or Subway Surfers right now, you need a high end Windows Phone.

Luckily the Lumia 525 keeps the price low but tweaks the memory. It’s really the best of both worlds, so it’s great to see it priced at $148 (¥899) in China, where it’s evidently available now for purchase.
