Connect 4

It's always great when Nokia exclusives are no longer upheld and other Windows Phone owners can subsequently enjoy more available content. Today we've been alerted to both Risk and Connect 4 becoming available for not only Nokia Windows Phones, but other handsets too. Both titles are very popular, with the former picking up a number of favourable reviews.

Alright, so a bad or ill-conceived game is still not good, no matter the price. But as last week’s sale on UNO proves, a lower price certainly makes the pill less bitter to swallow. Owners of Nokia Lumia phones just gained another low cost Xbox game to choose from, because the Nokia exclusive Connect 4 has dropped from $2.99 to the more palatable 99 cent price point.

Adding to the release of FourSquare, Nokia and EA Games has released the Xbox Windows Phone game Risk and Connect 4 to the Lumia line of Windows Phones. Both can easily be considered classic board games and the Windows Phone version represents the originals very well.

The game of Risk is one of global domination where you battle your opponents from country to country. The Windows Phone version allows for you to battle with up to five opponents or computer adversaries. Risk has Xbox Live achievements and leaderboards.

Marketplace Spotlight - Connect 4

Connect 4 is a simple game for your Windows Phone. Dumbnose Studios is offering their version of this classic game over at the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace.

Game play is simple in that you and your opponent take turns dropping colored disks into the playing field. The goal is to connect four (vertically, horizontally, or diagonally) of your disks before your opponent does.

Features of Connect 4 include:

  • Strong computer opponent with 4 difficulty levels (Beginner, Novice, Intermediate and Expert)
  • Computer can go first or second
  • Two-player mode

You can download your free copy of Connect 4 here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.
