Top 25 free games for your Windows phone


25s

Those days are long gone when people used to say “Windows phone has no apps”. Today Microsoft’s mobile platform sports 160K apps on its store. While it’s not as big as Apple’s or Google’s, it certainly has some big titles. But as a young platform, it still lacks some essential apps especially games. After the release of Windows phone 8, new hardwares started to come out, so did major apps. In this article I’m going to cover some of them apps(games) that you might want to install. This will give you an idea that the gaming experience on windows phone is not that bad after all. Before making any conclusion you should remember this is not all Windows phone has to offer. There are tons of other paid and Xbox live game(which are synonymous to big titles). I selected these games on the basis of their gameplay, graphics, popularity & ratings. There are other great games that I couldn’t include in my short article.

Note: This is not a review or a specific article about any games. Therefore, I wouldn’t bother writing description of every games (which is a very time consuming task). This is simply a collection of the games that I think you should download on your Windows phone. I didn’t include any screenshots(you can view them on store) and I can’t guarantee the games are available in your region. All of the games mentioned below are present on US WP store.
