Incredible Toys - battle to save the Toy World with this Windows Phone game

13

Incredible Toys is a Windows Phone action/adventure game where you help a collection of toy heroes survive a journey through Toy World. Game play is along the lines of an action runner game with some RPG features. Graphics are nice with a slight children's storybook feel. I will say while gaming controls are simple, they can be a little stubborn at times.

Incredible Toys is not available for low-memory devices (not sure why) and while Incredible Toys has appeal, I'm not sure if it's strong enough to be a go-to title for your gaming library.

100

Yesterday, I did a deep dive into the Duo Ultrapixel camera on the HTC One for Windows in an attempt to combat some of the negative pushback from Lumia users. One app that I did not mention in that coverage is HTC Video Highlights, as it was tangential to the camera's performance.

What is Video Highlights? For Lumia users, it is akin to Lumia Storyteller, but it does it a bit differently.

Review – Case-Mate Naked Tough Case for the HTC One for Windows

7

Covering your phone with a case is never an easy decision, nor is choosing one from the hundreds out there. One of the benefits of the HTC One for Windows is that it comes with a vast army of accessories due to the Android version paving a path. Now, Windows Phone users who grab the phone can benefit.

The Case-Mate Naked Tough case runs on the high-end for $27 (plus free shipping) from our Store.WPCentral.com site, and it falls into the mid-range category in terms of protection. The Naked Tough Case is no Otterbox, but it is much than just shell as well.

Fresh looks at upcoming horror games The Evil Within and Alien: Isolation for Xbox One and 360

22

Next month will be a landmark time for horror games. Sega and the Creative Assembly have Alien: Isolation, a game inspired by the first Alien film, on the way on October 7. Just one week later, Bethesda and Tango Software will unleashed The Evil Within, the long-awaited return to horror from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. Both games are due out on Xbox One and 360, so our last-gen brothers need not miss out on the scares.

With both games drawing near, the publishers are keeping them in the spotlight with new information and trailers. Alien: Isolation will be getting post-launch DLC for six months in the form of challenging new Survivor mode missions, we recently found out. As for The Evil Within, I recently had the opportunity to play the game and experience its disturbing atmosphere. Continue reading for detailed impressions and a look at both games' new trailers!
