Microsoft has a new trick up their sleeve to promote apps and games in the Windows Phone Store: weekly deals. Referred to as ‘red stripe’ offerings because the apps/games have a red boarder, users can purchase these games at a heavily discounted price. It should be a great way to move more inventory, so to speak, as well as highlight some top-quality apps or games in the store.

Windows Phone Central Game Roundup: 10tons
Windows Phone Central Roundup: 10tons Games

10tons isn't new to mobile gaming development with successful titles over on the Android and iOS stores. Over the past few weeks (or has it been months) 10tons has released a handful of games for the Windows Phone 8 platform that should be just as successful.

This week's roundup focuses on a handful of 10tons' games from the action/adventure to the challenging puzzle games.  Each game is uniquely challenging, has great graphics and a very nice addition to the Windows Phone Store.  Hopefully, what we can find now in the Windows Phone Store is but the start of a beautiful relationship between 10tons and the Windows Phone platform.

King Oddball is a odd little game for our Windows Phone. A little creepy as well.

You play the role of King Oddball, a disembodied head that hurls boulders from his tongue in an effort to conquer the world. You face various enemies ranging from tanks to helicopters that are scattered about various structures. The game has a bit of an Angry Birds feel to it but not enough to make it feel as a knock off.

Once you get past King Oddball's rather long tongue, the game grows on you. It has an addictive quality that makes it a nice addition to our Windows Phone gaming library.
