60 Seconds is a relatively new Windows Phone 8 game that caught our eye this morning. It's a fast paced game that has you caught up in the middle of a wild west shoot out.

You are tasked with protecting valuable cargo from wave after wave of bandits trying to rob your wagon. You have sixty seconds to take out as many of the bad guys as possible. The more bandits shot, the higher the score.

The game is drawn up nicely and is well suited for short game spurts or longer gaming sessions and is well worth a shot.

Happy Truck is a nicely animated Windows Phone 8 game that calls on you to safely deliver produce from the farm to market.  In your way is a bumpy road that would make the largest Monster Truck cringe. You have to navigate across the rigid terrain, keeping your load safe from spilling out of your truck.

Happy Truck has had a bit of success over on iOS and Android but may have a rough road to travel here on the Windows Phone platform.  The game has potential but is held back by a few bugs that makes the game more frustrating than enjoyable.

Hey guys, did you miss me? I’ve been busy playing Green Jelly, which you mustn’t confuse with the band who performed ‘Three Little Pigs’ in the nineties.

This Green Jelly is actually the latest Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 game from Russian developer MaxNick. Xbox gamers should remember MaxNick’s highly enjoyable Spider Jack and the boring-but-easy Turn N Run. Their latest game unfortunately doesn’t have Xbox features (more on that after the break), but it is still a cute and approachable physics puzzler in the vein of Spider Jack.

Originally Nokia exclusives, the games can be downloaded to any device.

Foul Play Xbox 360 Review: a rousing XBLA brawler

Seeing as how we didn’t get a new Xbox Windows Phone game last week, we’ll look at a downloadable Xbox 360 game instead. Foul Play is a recent Xbox Live Arcade game from UK-based publisher Mastertronic.

Foul Play’s title might make you think the game would have something to do with birds, but it actually refers to corrupt goings-on at the turn of the twentieth century. With a unique setting, witty writing, and charming art style, Foul Play is a beat-em-up worth playing. Head past the break for our full review!

Last month, Microsoft pulled 11 Xbox games from the Windows Phone Store, 10 of which had used Microsoft Points as the payment method for their In-App Purchases. At the time, we speculated that only a few games would return at all, and mostly stripped of their Xbox features.

Today the first of those delisted games has returned: Chickens Can’t Fly. Unfortunately, it has indeed returned as an indie game. But hey, at least Windows Phone gamers can play it again – if they repurchase. We can’t place the blame for this on developer Amused Sloth, though. They’ve just posted a lengthy explanation for change on their blog. As you might expect, stripping the game of its Xbox features came from a higher power...
