Ragdoll Run on Windows Phone and Windows 8 adds carrier billing for In-App Purchases

Paul Acevedo 5

Earlier this year, we brought news of a mobile payment system called Fortumo extending its support to Windows Phone and Windows 8. Fortumo allows developers to add mobile carrier billing to their games and apps, even on platforms that don’t normally support In-App Purchases  like Windows Phone 7. Fortumo’s carrier billing can allow users living in countries where credit cards are...

Exclusive: Electronic Arts confirms Tetris Blitz for Xbox on Windows Phone 8 [Updated]

Paul Acevedo 57

The days of Xbox Windows Phone games being announced in advance are pretty much behind us. Most weeks we get no game at all, and the games that do pop up were either announced long ago (such as this week’s Six-Guns) or just pop up out of the blue. Blame changes within Microsoft for the dwindling quantity of titles and lack of PR for mobile Xbox games. But but but! Nokia has actually put...

This has been a happy week for mobile Xbox gamers. Gameloft published the highly anticipated Six-Guns for Windows Phone 8, and it’s a free game to boot. But more is always better where games are concerned. The latest Xbox Red Stripe Deal has you covered then, gamers.

Our in house gamer Paul Acevedo falls into the former category, where I, your humble Editor, prefer the latter. Gaming for me is something I do for a few minutes here and there, with nary a thought on nailing those achievements. That’s why Armed Strike, for Windows Phone 7.x and 8, has...

Zombie Village joins the Windows Phone gaming line-up, no end in sight to the zombie incursion

George Ponder 22

You can add Zombie Village as one of the many gaming titles making the move to Windows Phone. The game has had some success over on iOS and Android platforms and in just tinkering with the game for a short time, it comes across as a nice time waster of a game. Zombie Village throws you into a village over run with...well...zombies. Your task, as is the case with most zombie games, is to...

Disney’s Wreck-it Ralph game now available for Windows Phone, nearly a year after the movie

Sam Sabri 43

Beggars can’t be choosers. So even though Disney’s Wreck-it Ralph came out in theatres nearly a year ago, we’re happy to see the game adaptation finally appear in the Windows Phone Store. It’s nearly identical to the iOS game that’s been out for quite some time, so let’s go check it out. Have you seen the movie? You should, it’s pretty good (this coming from a 25 year old man). If you...
