The long awaited and highly innovative Crackdown 2: Project Sunburst, which utilizes Bing maps, geolocation and asynchronous multiplayer support for some good old tower defense, is finally coming to our phones this month. Specifically, December 15th, according to Karl Stricker who works for Microsoft on Xbox LIVE for Windows Phone7.
For many, this game should really show off some hitherto unseen gaming support on Windows Phone 7, bringing a new level of creativeness to mobile gaming. This will be one of the first games to highly interact, by way of achievements, with a console game on Xbox 360 (Crackdown 2: Deluge). No word on pricing.

Are there any other asynchronous multiplayer games currently on Windows Phone? I would really like a few games that support the notification multiplayer panel built into the Xbox Live hub of the phone.
I think Uno, but that's it AFAIK.
Might have to pick up Crackdown 2 after all.
