Relive some video game nostalgia with Game Quotes for Windows Phone
Sometimes an app comes along that is so niche we’re not sure to post it or not. But Game Quotes is one we can definitely get behind. It’s fun, free, and hits our heart right in the soft spot filled with nostalgia. Let’s check it out.
Game Quote is a nifty little app that, surprise, gives you game quotes for old retro systems and games. Turn back your memory to the days of arcade games, Sega Genesis, Master System, SNES, and NES to get an idea of the game quotes you’ll be getting. The app has nearly 700 funky quotes from games: like the infamous “All your base are belong to us” from Zero Wing. Here’s what the app gives you:
- Live tile
- Pin quotes to your start screen
- Add favorites
- Save images to your Photos library
- Share through all your social networks
The app allows you to browse for quotes by game system and game name. The app will also feature a daily quote. It’s a free app that allows you to relive some of the weirder quotes from back in the day when game translations didn’t exactly produce high quality results.
You know what else is super interesting about this app? The story behind how it was made. The app comes from a guy who develops on iOS. He saw our article on starting out developing for Windows Phone 8. He followed the links and started the videos with no knowledge of C#, XAML, Visual Studio, or the Windows Phone SDK. After a few weeks of learning and coding he created Game Quotes, which is now in the Store. Congrats and welcome to Windows Phone. Keep learning and creating.
You can get Game Quotes for free if you’re running Windows Phone 8. Grab it in the Windows Phone Store, use the QR code below, or swipe to the right in our app.

You should also be able to swipe to quickly cycle through quotes. As of now you have to select a quote, then hit back, then select a new one, then hit back. Should be able to just zip through to the next quote by swiping in from either direction.
