Microsoft has unleashed this weeks Windows Phone Red Stripe Deals. Pricing has been slashed on the Xbox game Super Monkey Ball 2, glƏƏk!, and Hockey Nations PP.
For those not familiar, every week Microsoft discounts the pricing on a Windows Phone Xbox title as well as a app and game from independent developers. You easily identify them by the red stripe that surrounds the app/games Store icon tile.
Super Monkey Ball 2
Super Monkey Ball 2 is this week's Xbox gaming title where you take your monkey through 125 themed mazes to collect bananas and avoid dangers. There are several minigames as well.
Super Monkey Ball 2 is a fast paced and challenging arcade game that you can pick up here at the Windows Phone Store. There is a trial version and the full version is currently being offered at the reduced price of $.99.
Update: We've received a report that Super Monkey Ball 2 can't be downloaded on Windows Phone 8 devices with 512 MB of RAM (even though it runs fine on WIndows Phone 7 devices). Please let us know if this affects you in the comments below.
