The popular telnet/SSH client for Windows, PuTTY has finally gone into closed beta for Windows Phone. Should you be on the beta list from when we last covered the app being in development, you'll be able to get a first look at what's coming to the mobile platform. For those who aren't sure what PuTTY does, the app essentially enables you to connect to remote machines through a terminal.

With PuTTY being in beta as we speak, we can't see it being long for the testing phase to complete and the app be published for everyone to download. Pass the break for some details and screenshots.

We’ve been anxiously following Signal Studios’ Ascend: New Gods since its announcement back at E3 last year. The XBLA/PC game looks like a vast action-RPG while the Windows Phone companion game is the closest thing to Infinity Blade that we can expect for some time. Both versions are free-to-play and connect to each other in satisfying ways, hence much excitement from Xbox 360 and Windows Phone owners alike.

The XBLA game features some innovative asynchronous components that will make the single-player game feel like part of a massive online world. Such a bold undertaking requires lots of testing. Luckily for us, Signal has just announced public signups for closed beta access!
