Pre-order: Surface Laptop | NEW Surface Pro

With all the excitement over Tetris Blitz releasing on Windows Phone 8 last week, we almost missed that a couple of former Nokia Windows Phone exclusives have now become available to all Windows Phone users. Perish the thought!

The games are Dream Track Nation and Tiny Plane, both from PowPow Games. They clock in at $2.99 apiece and run on both Windows Phone 7 and 8 hardware. More Xbox Windows Phone games is always a good thing, but the low production values of these titles might temper excitement a bit…

Head past the break for details, Store links, and a full list of the remaining Nokia exclusive Xbox games!

The endless running game genre has become increasingly popular on smartphones in the last few years. The most popular entry by far – Jetpack Joyride – actually mixes flying with running, and to great effect. But suppose you want a pure endless flying game without all that fancy footwork? Then Nokia and Chillingo’s Tiny Plane is the only game in town.

Created by tiny Canadian developer PowPow Games (who also made Dream Track Nation), Tiny Plane can’t compare to Jetpack Joyride’s sheer scope and abundance of personality. But it packs a certain indie charm and some challenging gameplay that still make it worth a look.

Windows Phone 8 has received so much Xbox game love this week (in the form of The Dark Knight Rises and Shark Dash) that Windows Phone 7 owners were surely feeling left out. I mean, they should all be busy with Galactic Reign, but that’s another story.

This should not be.” To that end, Nokia and Chillingo have just published two Nokia-exclusive Xbox Windows Phone 7 games: Dream Track Nation and Tiny Plane. Both games look like great casual titles to keep Nokia owners busy.
