Delicious: Emily's Wonder Wedding for Windows 8 looks extra wonderful on a huge touch screen

Yesterday we brought you the news from Casual Connect that Puzzle Retreat would be coming to Windows Phone 8 this year. Now let’s follow up by discussing a Windows 8-specific game. This one comes from Game House, who we didn’t expect to have a mobile Windows presence at the show. Imagine my surprise when I stopped by their booth and saw the Windows 8 version of Delicious: Emily’s Wonder...

Tiki Towers is the second Xbox Windows Phone Deal of the Week this year

Tiki Towers is the second Xbox Windows Phone Deal of the Week this year

You’ve probably heard that Miniclip is offering four of its Xbox Windows Phone games for free right now. And as of last week, the Xbox Deal of the Week is back. So with a bunch of games gone free at the moment, does that mean we don’t get a new Deal of the Week today? Heck no it doesn’t! This week’s deal game is another blast from the past, as it’s been on sale once before. But it’s...

Sally's Salon permanently price dropped, Xbox Live Deal of the Week still on extended leave

Yesterday Windows Phone Central reported that Sally’s Salon Luxury Edition, the first game in the Sally’s series for Windows Phone, had been reduced in price from $4.99 to $2.99. While many believed the price change to represent the return of the Windows Phone Xbox Live Deal of the Week program, we did say it could have simply been a permanent price drop... Game House provided us with...

Sally's Spa finally opens its doors to Xbox Live gamers on Windows Phone

At lunch time on Wednesday, we were a bit hesitant to post a story about the Marketplace updating late. What if it updated within the next few minutes after the post went live? As it turns out, we needn’t have worried. Sally’s Spa, this week’s Xbox live release, finally went live around 1 am EST Thursday. That’s officially the latest a Windows Phone Xbox live game has ever been posted....

Xbox Live:TextTwist 2 arrives on the Marketplace with a bag full of letters and noble intentions

After a few hours delay, it’s here! The 100th Xbox Live release for Windows Phone, TextTwist 2 from GameHouse, is now on the Marketplace. TextTwist 2 is a word-finding game that plays a lot like Boggle. The game presents a random assortment of letters which players then use to create as many words as possible. A dictionary with tens of thousands of words means just about any word you...

Sally's Salon washes its hair, dresses up fancy as the Xbox Live Deal of the Week

Last’s week’s sale game may not have been very exciting, but this week’s Xbox Live Deal of the Week is much more enjoyable. Starting tomorrow, Sally’s Salon Luxury Edition goes on sale for $2.99, down from $4.99. Sally’s Salon Luxury Edition is a time management game – the only example of the genre in the mobile Xbox Live lineup ever since the much inferior Star Wars Cantina got pulled...

Xbox Live: Doodle Jump version 1.3 and Sally's Salon version 1.1 updates

Xbox Live: Doodle Jump version 1.3 and Sally's Salon version 1.1 updates

Game House recently updated two of their Xbox Live titles, and we’ve got the scoop on what’s changed. First up, Doodle Jump’s version 1.3 update does not bring the new themes (levels) we were promised a while back. But it does take advantage of the Windows Phone Mango update’s removal of the 30 FPS cap, bumping Doodle Jump’s frame rate up to 60FPS. That should make split-second steering...
