Moto Racing, a Windows Phone endless runner game on two wheels

24

Moto Racing is an endless runner styled game for your Windows Phone that has you weaving a motorcycle through traffic. You collect coins to buy new and faster motorcycles and ultimately see how far you can go without kissing the pavement.

The game's pace does have a little zip to it and a decent selection of bikes. Moto Racing isn't a bad title to have in your Windows Phone gaming library and is a fun way to pass the time. While the game is available for low memory devices, Moto Racing has more of a casual feel than what you would find with a more feature rich that you might invest marathon gaming sessions with.

Five popular apps that have not been updated for Windows Phone in months

720

Microsoft has been trying to get more developers to release their apps for the Windows Phone platform, but there's also a problem with major app creators and publishers that don't bother to update them with new features or improvements for months. In a couple of cases, the apps haven't been updated for nearly a year.

Microsoft recently revealed a new Developer's Code of Conduct for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone apps that stated, among other things, that developers must stay active in the store. That's certainly not the case for these five popular free apps, which have seen numerous feature and bug fix updates for their iOS and Android counterparts over the past year. In fact, most of these apps have seen some update in the past month for those two platforms, and none have been updated later than early September. That is certainly not the case for their Windows Phone versions.

'Tis the season where pumpkins are carved up, kids and adults alike begin hunting for the perfect costume and bags of candy begin to fly off store shelves. In the spirit of the Halloween season, this week's roundup will focus on apps and game that give our Windows Phone a ghostly flavor.

We did a keyword search in the Windows Phone Store for Halloween and grabbed a few of the higher rated apps and games from the search results. We aren't including Zombie games because they are more of a year round genre. We do have a few games that have been recently updated with a Halloween theme as well as a few apps that can help your Windows Phone get into the holiday spirit.
