Decent game for $0.99 with very easy achievements. Most will get bored of it very quickly.

 

I've been waiting ages for Fable Coin Golf to be DOTW and hoped they'd drop it this week, but guess the wait continues. I'm strictly not buying it on principle now.

 

Microsoft Bingo (Win 8) is now free in the U.S. It was only Canadian for a while.

Highly doubtful Coin Golf ever sees another sale, as it is WP7 only.

It looks like Glacier Blast is out for Win8 in the US. I finished the game a month ago from the Canadian Market. Easy complete.

Rayman is out and it is great as usual (thanks for the heads up at WPC Mr. Rubino). There's a free Windows 8 game also, but it is only in Canada currently.

Edit: Forgot to mention, mother of pur there are a ton of Flappy Bird games. At least 20 out of 50 new & rising are Flappy Birds clones or variants. This is the first time on WP that I noticed a game get so many clones in such a short time.

It's weird that  cannot find the game by searching on my phone or on the website. I have to use the link on WPC to get to the page. I don't have space on my phone anyway, so until I can finish a couple of games I can't download this unfortunately.

 

It looks like the pulled it back for some reason. The page says: "no longer available".

So it looks like Rayman Fiesta Run has been pulled from all market places including India for both WP & Win8. Hopefully this is only temporary. I really wanted to buy the Win8 version yesterday. :(

NBA Jam (WP) is fun for about 20 games, but they expect you to win 222 games that are 8 minutes each to get all the achievements. That's about 30 hours to complete it.

 

Throne Together (W8) is now available in the US for free.

For a minute there I forgot what this game was......Ugh! It's that Tetris-ish game. I guess at least it's free.

I haven't tried Throne Together yet, but all the reviews and forums seem to suggest that's it's the typical freemium "pay-to-win" hell that most free games seem to be these days.

 

I'd willingly pay $1 or $2 to be able to play these games normally, but the microtransaction prices are always ridiculous with some stuff going for more than the price of a full retail game.

Anybody that was able to get the new Ray able to get all the lums in level 29 Pinball Cook?

I watched videos of the game being played on other devices and it looks like my game is missing 3. I'm curious if it is just me or everybody is affected.

It is the last level I need and I'm curious if anything unlocks for beating everything.

 

EDIT:

 

www.flapmmo.com works really well on Lumia 1020 as long as you watch your tap speed. Quick double taps can mess the game up. When first loading the game, give it 20-30 seconds to fully load. You'll notice frame rate problems until then. My high score on PC is 71 and on WP8 it is 61.

Sooo yesterday I got a Lumia 928, being my first smartphone ever. Enjoying the hell out of it, but what are some of the best Xbox mobile games? I've got some of the stuff everybody already knows about--Fruit Ninja, Angry Birds, Jetpack Joyride, the free stuff like Uno and solitaire--but I'm looking for both fully fleshed out games and some cheap, easy achievement completions (I'm an achievement whore.)

 

Any recommendations?

Collapse is by far the easiest. 15-30 mins for 100%. Shark Dash and Roll in the Hole are in the group of runner-ups. Just to give you a few.

I got 200 GS from Kinectimals pretty easily. It does take awhile though.

 

Temple Run 2 is free, and it's a fun, fairly easy 200 GS.

There are a lot of good ones. I recommend playing through the free ones first while checking out the trials for weekly sales. Then start playing the paid stuff.

Since it is your first smartphone, you can probably spend hours with non-gaming apps alone. There are a ridiculous amount of things you can do with a smartphone.

EDIT: I for got mention Windows Phone Central (WPC). That is where I find out about 90% of apps that I download.

EDIT 2: Just found out about free Fifa 14 from WPC. Haven't gotten a chance to check out the achievements yet.

Bejeweled Live is the Win8 Red Stripe deal.  Down from $3.99 to $2.49 in the US.  Any recommendations of Bejeweled?  New to win 8 so I don't know if I should wait for a lower price.

It's a fun game. It's essentially Bejewled 3. I was on sale just recently for the same price. 

I don't think it will be offered for a cheaper price anytime soon. So if you're interested in it I would recommend grabbing it.

I think the lowest a Win8 game can be offered for is $1.49 and VERY few games actually go that low.

Anyone else having trouble loading Real Racing 2? I downloaded the demo, but when I try to play it, it shows the EA screen for a minute, then goes back to my phone's home screen.

 

I really want to play it, but if I can't load the demo, chances are I can't load the full game if I bought it.

 

I have a Nokia Lumia 900 WP7.

Working fine on Lumia 1020.

Rayman Fiesta got an update the other day. Missing lums are in the game now. Not sure what else has been changed/fixed. I'd be more disappointed about not unlocking anything for getting 72 crowns if the game wasn't so fun.

Totally going to hijack this thread for a minute but as WP users how do you think the app ecosystem for WP is doing?  Is it noticeably growing?  Are the sales on apps frequent?  How often do things go free?

 

I ask because it's hard to get a sense when you don't know anyone with one and I'm really leaning towards upgrading to the Lumia 1520 over the Note 3 at the moment.  Never was really happy with Android and WP has been awful tempting since the 1020 came out, and if the 1520 had that camera module (or the 1020 better specs) I wouldn't even be hesitating.  I really don't do a ton of app stuff since I really just use my phone for the camera and mobile interneting so a weaker app store isn't a deal breaker, it's just nice to know that there is a decent or growing selection if I do end up wanting/needing something.  Of course any thoughts on the 1520 itself are quite welcome too. :-)

We recently had our first major clone flooded marketplace that I could remember with Flappy Bird. As horrible as it has made marketplace, it also means there are a lot of indie devs putting work into the OS.

Check out Windows Phone Central. They usually have news about how well the OS is doing. I believe it just passed up Blackberry to take #3 spot in U.S.

Might want to wait for 8.1 to come out. That will have a lot of new features.

Follow up on my Real Racing 2 WP7 problems. The demo would never load for me no matter how many times I tried. Well, I took a chance and deleted the demo and bought the full game, and the full game itself loads fine and plays with no issues. Seems odd how the demo never worked but the full game doesn't have the same problems. Pretty decent racer for $1.99 and more enjoyable than the chaotic, but still fun, Asphalt 5.

Is Rayman Fiesta Run significantly better than Jungle Run? I bought Jungle Run when it was on sale after all the rave reviews, and honestly I found it to be one of the most overrated games I have ever played. Sure it's pretty, but the gameplay is repetitive and kind of boring. Plus the achievements are unnecessarily hard. Just wondering if Fiesta run offers more variety or improves upon the formula in any way.
