Top Rated Fishing Games for your Windows Phone

Fishing is a fantastic way to spend the day but with the Seasons changing and temperatures dropping, the opportunity to spend an afternoon on the lake may not still be available for many. For those who are itching to try their hand at hooking the catch of the day during the colder months (or at least pretending to), there is a small collection of Windows Phone games available in the Store.

We've pulled four of the top rated fishing games from the Windows Phone Store for this week's roundup and while some of the titles approach fishing from a non-traditional approach, all are decent games to pass the time with.

Night Chopper - a fast paced, addictive Windows Phone game that may drive you nuts

17

If you are in search of a simple, challenging, addictive game for your Windows Phone - you will want to try Night Chopper.

Night Chopper is inspired by the Timberman games but approaches being a lumberjack from a slightly different angle. The viewpoint of chopping down the tree is from the bottom up. That is you are looking up the center of the tree. The different perspective does take a little time to get used to and can drive you nuts (in a good way that is).

Available for low-memory devices, the developer has done a good job delivering a rather nice gaming title to our Windows Phone.

Microsoft giving free Ryse game to lucky Sunset Overdrive console owners [Updated]

44

Earlier this week we reviewed the white Xbox One Sunset Overdrive Special Edition bundle, which launched first in North America followed by the UK a few days later. I found the bundle to be a very good value at $400, as it comes with a fresh and exclusive game and a unique looking console and controller. At $350 (the price starting Novermber 2nd), the Sunset OverDrive console will be a steal.

It turns out the white console has even more value than anyone knew. On Halloween, people who purchased the console and went online started receiving a surprise message from Microsoft with a free code for Ryse: Son of Rome! We can't say whether Microsoft will keep sending them to people who buy the Sunset Overdrive console later on. Still, it's a very classy move and a terrific way to welcome new players into the Xbox One fold.

6cret for Windows Phone reportedly being axed due to copyright complaint

144

Windows Phone users may be getting another blow to their app selection as third-party Secret client 6cret made by Rudy Huyn may be removed from the Store very soon.

Tonight in a brief Tweet, Huyn said "tonight is the night of #6cret death, you can thank Jared for that (@thedrivein). WP users have no more secrets". Huyn was referring to Jared McGuire who works at Secret and who evidently filed the complaint.
