Behold, young Padawans, as Angry Birds Star Wars II is now live on the Store for Windows Phone 8 users—and it’s even a day early from the official September 19 launch date (beating out iOS and Android). What is even more fantastic?

SongArc is a forthcoming rhythm game for Windows Phone users that we think could be a huge hit. We’ve covered the game in the past, even giving you a sneak peek of the gameplay. Think of Guitar Hero but tailored for Windows Phone and you’d be on the right track. By picking music from your library, you can load up sheets to enable a fast paced rhythm matching game, perfect for playing...

We’ve been covering Games with Gold from Xbox Live since it started earlier this summer. Aren’t familiar with the program? For the remainder of the year, Microsoft is giving Xbox Live Gold members two free games per month. Usually the titles available are a little older, but still great. We’ve seen fun games like Fable III, Assassin’s Creed II, and more over the last few months. Today...

The last few weeks have been good to fans of Disney’s Where’s My Water? and its spin-off games, Where’s My Perry? And Where’s My Mickey?. First the Windows 8 versions of all three titles went on sale, and then like a week later Disney gave them away free for some reason. The phone versions of the first two games also went free for a brief time at the beginning of the year. It’s safe to...

Soulcraft is a popular game that’s available on nearly any mobile platform you can think...

Despicable Me fans have a relatively new Windows Phone game available that features the little yellow minions. Minions Space Battle is a Galaga styled arcade game where you battle minion against minions. While not an official Minions game, Minions Space Battle has potential. The opening screen is a giggle loop from the minions that will make most grin and game play isn't too bad with a...

Some development teams just made solid product after solid product. One of those development teams is game studio 10tons. They’ve given us great (sometimes weird) games like King Oddball, Sparkle, and more. Seriously, if you haven’t played a game from 10tons you need to go to the Windows Phone Store, pick one up and at least play the trial. You’ll probably get hooked. Well 10tons has...
