This week's Red Stripe Deals are a little bit early over in the Windows Phone Store but who are we to complain.
For those not familiar with the deals, every week the Windows Phone Store taps one Xbox Windows Phone game, one independent gaming title and one app to go on sale. The deal lasts only a week when three new titles will be tapped for the savings.
For this week's deals, which are currently live, we have the Xbox title Parking Mania, the Akinator game, and the network utility UPnP Spy.
Parking Mania: Parking Mania is a game of precision, style and skill. It's a puzzle/driving game where you must carefully steer one or more vehicles from one destination to another, parking them safely in designated parking spaces.
Parking Mania's game play spans eighty levels with a wide range of vehicles to control. There's not a trial version and being a Red Stripe Deal priced at $.99 it might be worth taking the risk.
Parking Mania is available for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices and you can find it here in the Windows Phone Store.
Akinator: Akinator is a unique game for your Windows Phone that has you think of the answer to a question and based on your answers to a few follow up questions, dares to read your mind.
For what's basically a novelty game, Akinator is full of features that include letting you add pictures and names of people you may be thinking of, Facebook sharing, a child filter to keep the content appropriate, speech recognition for hands free use and a ton of language support.
Akinator is available for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices (some features are limited on 7.x devices). There is a trial with Akinator currently priced at the Red Stripe Deal price of $.99.
You can find Akinator here in the Windows Phone Store.
UPnP Spy: UPnP is a networking technology which allows devices in your home to communicate with each other or be configured remotely.
Devices that support UPnP may include things like your home router, internet enabled television, your computer or gaming console. With UPnP Spy you will be able to see the different networked devices in your home, view the services they expose, and call methods.
UPnP Spy is available for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices. There is a free trial version available to let you try things out with the full version running only $.99 as a Red Stripe Deal.
You can find UPnP Spy here in the Windows Phone Store.
Thanks, David, for the tip!
