Pre-order: Surface Laptop | NEW Surface Pro

OMG

Yesterday’s delisting of Turn N Run – literally the night before our review went live, and only six days after the game’s release – highlights a large and ongoing problem in the world of Xbox Windows Phone games. Since the debut of Windows Phone 8, incompatibility with the new OS has been discovered among a number of Xbox WP7 titles. Each of these games has been completely delisted from the web version of the Windows Phone Store, and either partially or fully removed from Store searches on actual Windows Phones.

Read on to learn what games have been affected so far, and how Microsoft may be mishandling the Windows Phone 8 incompatibility issues in more ways than one.

The Xbox Live Deal of the Week program appears to be slowly making its way through all of the Windows Phone launch titles, temporarily knocking one or two dollars off of each game. The latest game to get the discount is OMG: Our Manic Game from Arkedo Studios. It’s on sale for $1.99, down from $2.99. Oh my gosh!

OMG is a vertically-scrolling shooter featuring neon-colored vector graphics. The player’s ship constantly fires, while tapping enemies makes them become manic and unleash a hail of extra fire. The game has got both Infinite and 5 Minute modes to blast through.  Our OMG review notes that it’s a bit light on content (as with many launch titles) but still plenty of fun. The gameplay is a little too plain for me, but if you’re into shooters, it’s currently the only Xbox Live game in town.

OMG is on sale for $1.99 for like, one week only. You can totally get it here (Zune link) on the Marketplace!

Software Review: OMG (Our Manic Game) + Video

OMG brings back some of the best things that were left behind in the late 80's arcade halls. Dark atmospheres and neon lights, simple graphics set to totally rad sound, and best of all - addictive gaming urging you on to beat the highest score. Our Manic Game by Arkedo Studios is certainly no throwback either. It isn't nearly as aggressive at destroying your stock as those old cabinets were for some more quarters and the controls are nearly sublime. All that's really missing here is the pizza shop and someone pestering you for next game.

Read on for Rob's full review, including a sweet video that shows off gameplay and offers some gaming tips as well!
