Windows Phone is the name for a family of operating systems used by Microsoft in its own mobile devices since 2010. Mobile Windows is in many ways similar to its predecessor from PCs – which unquestionably rules on the computer market – but it’s unable to come out of the shadow of its rivals: Android and iOS. The result of such situation is relatively small number of games being created for Windows Phone.

March of Empires (WP)

Strategy 13 August 2015

A mobile strategy game by Gameloft, in which we lead one of three factions and try to forge a powerful empire. In its general premise, the title doesn’t significantly deviate from the standards of other common mobile MMO strategy productions. The player’s tasks include continuous development of infrastructure, researching new technologies, raising a powerful army, and conquering other players’ territory. In March of Empire, we can assume the role of a king, a tsar, or a sultan, and the choice has a quite big influence on our starting parameters and the further course of the game. Moreover, Gameloft’s title is characterized by a slightly more developed plot and gameplay depth that is influenced by such factors as seasons or weather conditions. The tactical layer is also more extensive — in battles, we can apply various formations, each having its pros and cons. The game features rich social options and the possibility of forming alliances.

A racing game, available in a free-to-play model with micropayments, and an installment of the popular Gameloft mobile series.

Five Nights at Freddy's (WP)

Adventure 01 December 2014

An original horror game created by Scott Cawthon, an independent gamemaker. The player assumes the role of a watchman who takes up a seasonal job at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. What is important about the restaurant, is that mechanical mascots are its main attraction. A seemingly easy job turns into a true nightmare during the very first night, when the protagonist discovers that the sympathetic animatronics come to life after dark and display a hostile attitude towards humans. Trapped in a cramped watch room, the protagonist has to avoid contact with murderous robots during five subsequent nights. The task is not easy, because using various devices, such as lighting and monitoring systems, as well as locking the door drains the power supply, which has to be appropriately managed throughout the entire night. Despite its simplistic mechanics, Five Nights at Freddy's provides a good dose of anxiety and is capable of frightening the player with ease.

Adventure 22 March 2014

An original two-dimensional adventure game developed by Amanita Design - an independent Czech studio popular for the Samorost series. The action is set in a bizarre world made entirely of metal.

The game is based on the classic point-and-click mechanics and the player collects various items when exploring subsequent locations and solves a set of relatively simple puzzles. Machinarium stands out with its well-made hand-drawn visuals inspired by industrial architecture, old and rusty machinery, as well as by classics of science-fiction literature.

Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution 2 (WP)

Strategy canceled

A side installment belonging to the legendary series of turn-based strategy games that use the name of Sid Meier as a trademark. While the previous Civilization Revolution was created mainly for the more popular home consoles, Revolution 2 was developed specifically for mobile device and PlayStation Vita owners. Similar to the previous installments, the game casts the player in the role of a leader in control of a civilization of their choice. The player's goal is to achieve global domination. The game begins in ancient times, with the player having little resources and few territories. Over time, the player develops technology, expands towns, recruits armies and obtains new territories - lands conquered have to be governed appropriately as well. Civilization Revolution 2 offers additional units, technologies, buildings, wonders, as well as previously unavailable leaders. What is also new, is the scenario mode, allowing the player to participate in various historical events, such as famous battles. The game offers three-dimensional visuals.

Simple gameplay mechanics are only the tools used for telling an intriguing story which the player will reveal as he progresses in the game.

Lara Croft GO (WP)

Adventure 27 August 2015

A spin-off to the adventures of the beautiful archaeologist Lara Croft, created for mobile platforms users by one of Square Enix’s studios, which also created a mobile game featuring Agent 47. Gameplay combines elements characteristic for the Tomb Raider series – e.g. exploring ruins and tombs filled with traps – with turn-based logic game mechanics borrowed from Hitman GO. The action is presented in isometric view and the player’s goal is to go through various locations by moving on predefined paths, disable traps, and fight enemies. To make matters more difficult, a part of a location is not visible at the beginning, so you need to precisely plan what to do – each inconsiderate move costs a lot. The game features simple hand-drawn graphics and an atmospheric soundtrack.

Candy Crush Jelly Saga (WP)

Logic 07 January 2016

Another installment in the series of casual puzzle games created by King.com. Candy Crush Jelly Saga is based on the popular match-3 mechanics and, similarly to previous installments of the series, features no storyline, focusing entirely on gameplay. The objective of the game is to conquer more than a hundred available levels by creating sets of at least three candies of the same type out of many more shown on the screen. In contrast to most other match-3 games, the levels aren’t randomly generated – instead, each of them is a carefully-planned logical challenge with candies placed in specific places and featuring unique map shapes. The gameplay is more varied thanks to the boss fights, during which the player must complete additional objectives. The game provides also means for competition between friends through internet rankings.
