If you're new to Windows Phone, every week the Windows Phone Store slashes the pricing on one Xbox game, one app, and one independent gaming titles. Collectively these are your Red Stripe Deals.
This week we have an Xbox title where you try to dominate the world through battle and diplomacy, a weather app that is a one of our personal favorites, and a farming simulator that tests your skills are cultivating and managing crops.
Civilization Revolution: This week's Xbox deal tests your skills at global domination with Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution. You go toe to toe against some of history's greatest leaders as you wage war and conduct diplomacy.
You’ll need to collect resources, build new cities, research technologies, and either war against or form alliances with neighboring countries. You can choose from 16 different nations to play with as you strive to achieve one of four possible victory conditions: Technology, Economic, Cultural, and Domination (war).
There is a trial version available for Civilization Revolution with the full version on sale for $.99. You can find Civilization Revolution here in the Windows Phone Store.
Weather Flow: Weather Flow is one of our favorite weather apps and we're glad to see it highlighted in this week's Red Stripe Deals. Weather Flow is the creation of Gergely Orosz, who also brings us Cocktail Flow and AppFlow (both amazing apps), and is a wonderfully laid out weather app for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices.
Weather Flow covers the basics (current conditions and extended forecast) in a visually appealing manner and includes lockscreen and Live Tile support to make the weather information easily accessible. If you're looking for a weather app for your Windows Phone that has a bit of pop to it, Weather Flow will be on the short list.
There is a trial version available for Weather Flow with the full version on sale for $.99. You can find Weather Flow here in the Windows Phone Store.
Farming Simulator: As the name implies, Farming Simulator is a Windows Phone 8 game where you manage a farm. You control everything from seeding your fields, harvesting the crops, and dealing with market prices.
Along the way you get to control a wide variety of farming equipment from tractors to harvesters and with your earnings you can upgrade to bigger and better vehicles.
There is now a trial version available for Farming Simulator with the full version slashed to the low price of $1.49 (regular price is $3.49). It is only compatible with Windows Phone 8 devices and you can find Farming Simulator here in the Windows Phone Store.
Keep in mind that Red Stripe Deals only last a week so if you're on the fence about any of these three Windows Phone titles, now is your chance to save a little.
Review: Intel-based Acer Swift 3 is a different beast than the AMD version
