I finally got my first Windows Phone yesterday and I'll definitely be watching this thread more now, and I'm gonna read through some of what's already here and on the wpcentral site to see what's all worth getting, so far I've just got a couple of the free things that they have on the store.
Everyone mentioned some great games. Max & The magic Marker is super for .99 cents. Most of the .99 cent titles are well worth price of admission.
My Favorite Live titles include: Ilomilo, implode, hydro thunder, Max/Magic Marker, Orbital, Sally's Salon LE, Tentacles, and Wordament.
NON-Live titles that are a must check out include: Wordfeud!
there is a large community because you play against wp7, ios, and android community. It has a trial version and is priced at 2.99. I have the trial but should purchase it with how often I play it against friends and my wife. The trial includes advertisments and I believe one board held back? Wordfeud also features toasts and a live tile which is very useful because it tells you when it is your turn and who played (you can play mutlitple games/people at the same time). I also enjoy taptitude
(a ton of mini games and updated regularly), unite, cartridge
(similar to 8-bit mario), chickens can dream
(delisted?), and one of my favorite titles...DRAGON'S BLADE!!!
If you have any fond memories of early final fantasy titles dragon's blade is a title to check out. Suvivalcraft
is decent if you enjoy minecraft. Don't make fun but Clowning College
is actually kind of fun too.
I also recommend AppFlow App Discovery
. I found a few gems by using this application.
Correction: May 23's release will be 99 cents. Don't have a price yet on May 16's release, geoDefense Swarm.
Also, I updated the OP and upcoming games list to be as accurate as possible. I wonder though: Do any of our regular readers actually check the front page?
Thanks Eastx. I do in fact check the front page for links to your reviews, new releases, etc.
BTW: I just realized Kinectimals and Beards and Beaks have live tiles. No real purpose, but still kind of cool. I love me some live tiles.
I wish there was an application that gave live updates on news/scores for sports with toasts.
Monster Island must have fixed the achievement complaint because it is listed again.? I also purchased Feed Me oil because one, it is 99 cents and like Tyler's thinking a DOTW would only save me maybe 34 cents, so why not. If more games release at .99 cents I may never wait for DOTW again.
