From Cheese is an interesting puzzle game for Windows Phone 8 where you lead a hungry little mouse through a maze to a block of cheese.  The smelly twist is that you guide the mouse by the cheese’s aroma, drawing a path for the mouse to follow from the cheese.

From Cheese has fifty-eight levels of reverse-logic puzzles full of obstacles and dangers to work around to get your mouse to his dinner.

It may be another puzzle game for Windows Phone 8 but From Cheese’s approach to solving the puzzles makes it an appealing new addition to our Windows Phone gaming library.

Altern8: Windows Phone Game Review

Altern8 is a puzzle game for your Windows Phone that offers you an alternative to mazes with walls. Instead of having your movement restricted by traditional walls, Altern8 restricts your movements through maze puzzles by colored squares.

You move through a grid of colored squares, alternating the colored squares you land on, as you seek the exit. Altern8 has five gaming modes, five difficulty levels and four color pairs. Altern8 is a fun, change of pace styled game that is worth a try if you're looking for a game to play while passing the time.

Windows Phone Xbox Live Review: Breeze

While it’s tough for indie games to get noticed on Xbox 360, several of them have found new life as Xbox Live titles on Windows Phone. Breeze is the latest game to make the jump. Developed almost entirely by one person – Rob Hutchinson of Null City Software, Breeze doesn't quite share the scale of most other Xbox Live games. Thankfully it’s a free (and ad-supported) game, and should go over well with a wide variety of gamers.

Monkey Madness - App Spotlight

Phoebit Software is offering Monkey Madness over at the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace. The platformer game has you controlling your monkey with the phone's accelerometer. You work your way through a moving maze/ladder to reach the top of the screen. Jumping is controlled by tapping the screen to leap through openings in the walkways or rungs in the ladder.

Along your journey you try to collect bonus items and avoid dangers such as snakes and ghosts. If one of the monsters catch you, you will loose one of your three lives. You also need to be careful not to bump your head on the walkway above or fall through the gaps in the moving rungs. You won't loose a life but your monkey will be stunned for a short period.

Monkey Madness has an online leader board to compare your scores with others. As you advance in levels, the game becomes more challenging and you really need to stay on your toes as the direction of the rungs will change.

There is a free trial version available for Monkey Madness with the full version running $.99. You can download either here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.

Prof. Stone - Review

In the spirit of Pac-Man, MaSta Software is offering the Windows Phone 7 game Prof. Stone over at the Marketplace. The Windows Phone game has you playing the role of Professor Stone who has to work his way through a multitude of mazes, collecting diamonds along the way.

While Pac-Man had cute little ghosts such as Blinky, Pinky and Inky that chased you about the screen, Professor Stone has various monsters (they appear to be an alien, wild boar, and mutant chicken) that chase you down. To help combat the monster, torches are scattered about the maze that will fend off the monsters and make them vulnerable to attack (you simply walk over them and they go running away).

Continued after the break...
