There's never a quiet day in the Windows Phone community when we're talking about app updates. Developers enjoy submitting regular releases to the store, introducing new features and functionality, as well as fixing a bug here and there. Today we're covering Snes8x and Freddy. Head on past the break to see what's new in each app.
First up is Snes8x, which now has MOGA controller support - both Pocket and Pro versions are compatible. The popular Super Nintendo emulator for Windows Phone is packed full of features for those who enjoy some retro gaming here and there. The only requirement for the new MOGA controller support is GDR3 (or Update 3 as it's now known).
The controller can be enabled in Settings > Input and you're good to go. Version 1.4 also includes a possible fix for the virtual controller freezing issue, which has caused problems for users.
You can download version 1.4 of Snes8x from the Windows Phone Store for free. It's worth noting that Windows Phone Central does not support the illegal acquisition of video games, including ROMs.
Next up is Freddy, a physics-based arcade game, where players are tasked with preventing Freddy the Frog from eating the poisonous balls, which fall from above. It may sound like a super easy game, but don't be fooled and head in blindly, this game gets more difficult as you progress.
Version 1.1.0 brings bug fixes, general improvements and special Christmas themed levels. We can tease that more levels, language support, achievements and more improvements will be coming in future updates. Be sure to grab this challenging, cute little game over the festive period to appreciate the latest update.
Grab Freddy from the Windows Phone Store for $0.99 - Windows Phone 8 only and free trial available.
