Best gaming apps for windows phone

Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise: While virtually no one was looking, Windows Phone has fast become a great gaming platform. A few key developers—notably Zynga and OMGPOP, among others—aren’t on board yet, but many of the big ones are. Windows Phone is even racking up some exclusives you can’t get on Android or iOS. The best part: All the games listed here look great and play smoothly. Don’t let Windows Phone’s current lack of support for dual-core CPUs get to you.

Assassin’s Creed

This smoothly animated, three-quarter perspective action adventure game brings 12th-century Middle East to life. Encompassing the Third Crusade, Assassin’s Creed looks, sounds, and feels like a proper adventure game—complete with cinematic cut scenes, six short and long-range weapons, and a series of mini-games. It also has a killer atmosphere.

Sonic 4 Episode I

It’s the radioactive blue hedgehog, and it’s on Windows Phone. Sonic plays just as well here as it did on Sega consoles, with smooth animation and (for some of us) nausea-inducing flips and rolls, even just in 2D. Gamers who cut their teeth on a Sega Genesis won’t need any convincing for this one.

Civilization Revolution

The Civilization series may be 20 years old, but thanks to a stellar fifth incarnation on the desktop, plus re-imagined Revolution versions on consoles and mobile devices, it keeps going strong. The Windows Phone version satisfies, with 16 civilizations, multiple difficulty levels, several tutorial modes, four victory conditions, and a tool for creating your own scenarios.

Kinectimals

This one is a kid’s game, but it’s pretty amazing. (And no, it doesn’t require Microsoft Kinect.) On the island of Lemuria, you can play with and care for a cheetah, black panther, African lion, royal Bengal tiger, or African leopard, with the ability to unlock more animals as you progress. Gorgeous graphics and a smooth, orchestral soundtrack really show off your phone’s power.
