You still have time to win a new Windows Phone in our Hidden Gems contest!


A few weeks ago we started our Hidden Gems series in conjunction with Microsoft. The goal of the series is to highlight apps and games of high quality but that slip under the radar. Sure it is easy to write about big official apps, but it is these burgeoning services and games that are the heart of mobile today.

Currently, we are on a brief hiatus as we catchup on device release news, reviews and our usual content. However, two things: one, you can still enter our contests to win a new phone or tablet, and two, the series returns in the coming weeks!

Death Drop for Windows Phone, skydiving minus the parachute


Death Drop isn't your typical Windows Phone game in that you are tasked with jumping your gaming character from a perfectly good airplane and guide him to a target on the ground.

The gaming concept doesn't sound too off-beat until you realize there are no parachutes involved in this game. Each jump destination has multiple targets to strike that range from park benches to garden gnomes to moving vehicles. It's your mission to slam your daredevil into these targets with little regard to safety.

Available for 512MB devices, Death Drop may not hold up to marathon gaming sessions but if you are looking for something off the beaten path, it may be worth a try.

Covy Land, a fast paced platformer game for Windows Phone


Some time ago, we ran across a decent endless runner styled Windows Phone game from Loon Apps, Covy Rush, where you guide a rabbit through an obstacle course full of dangers. Covy Land is the follow-up to Covy Rush that has similar dangers but is presented as more of a platform styled game.

Covy Land has you guiding the rabbit, Covy, across thirty levels of play and help Covy find all her children. You will have traps and blocks to avoid along with secret passages to discover.

Available for 512MB devices, Covy Land does have a certain amount of appeal. Graphic are nicely drawn-up, game play is challenging with a fast pace but the game does have a Kid's Corner feel about it, which may not be attractive to everyone.
