Yatzy Online, a Windows Phone 8 variation of an age-old game

Yatzy Online is a turn based, online Windows Phone 8 game based on the classic dice game Yahtzee. Yatzy Online is also available over on Android and IOS which should give you a healthy player pool to compete against.

Yatzy Online is laid out in a straight forward manner with three variations of Yahtzee, International, Scandinavian and a six dice version. Yatzy Online is a decent version of the dice throwing game for our Windows Phone 8 devices but does have a few annoying features.

Windows Phone Game Review: Twisted

Twisted is an online, multi-player, boggle styled game for your Windows Phone. As with most boggle styled games, you are presented with a 4x4 grid of letters that you have to build as many words as possible within a certain time limit.

You create the words by tracing connected letters to form the words. Letters have varying points values and some letters have multipliers.

Twisted is very similar to the leading boggle styled game for our Windows Phone, Wordament.  However, the game takes a different approach to the game.  I don't think Twisted will knock Wordament out of the number one spot, but it does make for a nice compliment to your Windows Phone gaming library.
