Game developer Miniclip releases super addicting Rail Rush for the Nokia Collection

Windows Phone has its fair share of great games. There are a ton of high quality games from both indie developers and larger game makers. Game developer Miniclip has just released a new game for Windows Phone called Rail Rush. As you may know, Miniclip is no stranger to Windows Phone. They’ve released popular games like Fragger, Gravity Guy, iStunt 2, and others. Now they’ve got another...

Chaos Rings from Square Enix and Gravity Guy 2 gracing Xbox Windows Phone this week

This is GDC week, so you can count on some cool developer interviews and hands-on stories as the conference progresses. But it’s also just an exciting week for Windows Phone releases. First we had the release of Sims Medieval for Nokia devices, and now general users can look forward to two regular Xbox releases on Wednesday. We’re looking at one Windows Phone 7 game and one for Windows...

Monster Island gets super cheap as the Xbox Live Deal of the Week on Windows Phone

Monster Island gets super cheap as the Xbox Live Deal of the Week on Windows Phone

Last week’s Xbox Live Deal of the Week marked the return of the popular sales program, but it failed to impress due to the subterranean quality of the game on sale, Fusion: Sentient. Still, the DOTW’s return promised brighter days to come, and quickly, too. This week’s deal is Monster Island, widely regarded as the best Angry Birds-type game currently available on Windows Phone. Plus it...

Fling coming to Xbox Live on Windows Phone this Wednesday on the cheap

Actual Windows Phone screenshots free of marketting text! It’s getting down to the wire, but we do at last have details of this week’s Xbox Live release. This Wednesday, prolific Swiss developer Miniclip’s latest game Fling makes its debut. Fling’s Achievements were first discovered back in early May, along with Battleship and Mirror’s Edge. This will make two down and one to go, won’t...

Battleship, Mirror's Edge, and Fling coming soon to Xbox Live on Windows Phone

Our friends at Xbox360Achievements.org often discover Achievements lists for games before release, and sometimes even before a game’s announcement. Actually, much of the credit goes to French gamer Zebrasqual, who one site called ‘the best Windows Phone gamer in the world.’ Mr. Squal (as I like to call him) makes it his business not just to have the most mobile Xbox Live Achievements of...

Monster Island no longer listed in the Marketplace, possibly due to Xbox Live Achievement issue

Monster Island no longer listed in the Marketplace, possibly due to Xbox Live Achievement issue

Monster Island’s Xbox Live launch on Wednesday was odd for a couple of reasons. First, only people located in the US could buy it, even though past Miniclip games launched worldwide. Second, one of Monster Island’s Achievements, ‘Big Spender,’ is tied directly to purchasing $3 worth of PDLC. That raised my eyebrows pretty much off my head, and I know I’m not alone. Only a couple of days...

Monster Island now on the Windows Phone Marketplace along with a PDLC Xbox Live Achievement

Monster Island now on the Windows Phone Marketplace along with a PDLC Xbox Live Achievement

It’s time to take a break from Sid Meier strategy games for a while and settle into some nice throwing things at other things. I am, of course, speaking of Monster Island, the latest Xbox Live release from Miniclip. Monster Island is basically a monster-themed version of Fragger. Instead of a grenadier, you’re now a monster who must defeat invading monsters. Aim and throw five different...
