Rayman Fiesta Run review – Rayman delivers again on Windows Phone and Windows 8

Rayman Fiesta Run review – Rayman delivers again on Windows Phone and Windows 8

Ubisoft and Pastagames’ Rayman Jungle Run was that perfect one-two punch: an excellent platformer, and a high quality mobile Xbox game. The sequel Rayman Fiesta Run had a lot to live up to, and it almost felt like Ubisoft didn’t want to share it with us.

UNO & Friends Review: The first online multiplayer card game on Xbox Windows Phone 8

Having reviewed Gameloft’s Order & Chaos Online last week, today we look at the publisher’s latest release UNO & Friends for Windows Phone 8. That’s the title, not “UNOFriends” as it’s inexplicably listed in the Windows Phone Store. It’s free and runs on all Windows Phone 8 devices (even low end ones), so it’s definitely worth a look.
