Windows Phone 8 Game

Clash of Clans is one of the most profitable mobile games in existence. But developer Supercell has so far refused to bring Clash to Windows Phone. That refusal opens up the doors for companies like Gameloft to swoop in and make their own Clash-like games. But Gameloft’s Total Conquest sits on the buggy side of things, so maybe you’re looking for a different game to play involving clans and clashes.

That’s where Game Insight’s Cloud Raiders comes in. A competitive raiding game set within a Skylanders-like world of floating islands, Cloud Raiders shows loads of polish even during its first official month of release on Windows Phone. With casual strategic battles, base building, clan support, and unrivaled cross-platform support, Cloud Raiders is both a great replacement for Clash of Clans and an impressive game all on its own. Read on for our full review.

If you're in the market for a fast paced game for your Windows Phone 8 device, take a look at Dhoom:3 The Game. It is the official game for the upcoming action/adventure movie Dhoom:3 that is due out in theaters later this year.

In a nutshell, Dhoom:3 The Game is an endless runner game played on a motorcycle. You run the streets of Chicago, staying one step ahead of the cops and avoiding hazards such as light posts, traffic and walls. You collect coins along the way that can be used to buy new bikes, new racing suits, and power-ups.  The further you travel, the higher your score.

Yatzy Online is laid out in a straight forward manner with three variations of Yahtzee, International, Scandinavian and a six dice version. Yatzy Online is a decent version of the dice throwing game for our Windows Phone 8 devices but does have a few annoying features.

While Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 7.x may look mostly the same, at their core the two operating systems are very different. As such, both OSs have a certain amount of overlap in terms of what software they can run but there are differences.
