It's another weekend over so here's your Windows Phone summary. This week we've had the Mobile Nations Monday brief, Mobile Nations podcast, WPCentral Podcast episode 124 and a developer interview with Ronny Gydar of Trine's Hangman. Our Dave Blake has also compiled the top discussions happening over at our forum.
We were at HTC event in London on Thursday, check out our summary, our hands on videos of the Radar and Titan, special episode 124.5 of the WPCentral Podcast and the official product pages. Check out the rest of the summary after the quick break.
WPCentral’s Xbox Live Developer Interview series continues as we converse with Adam Isgreen of Microsoft Game Studios. Adam’s team developed Beards & Beaks, a Windows Phone-exclusive real-time strategy game. Check out our full review here. In the following interview, we’ll delve into a few of the game’s mysteries and reveal exclusive, never-before-seen concept art.
Step over the gnomes and head past the break for the full interview.
If you're not fully aware as to who Ronny Gydar (and Gydar Industries) is you must be still hiding in that cave of yours as he's the brains (and developing power) behind Trine's Hangman, the popular leaderboard-supported hangman game for Windows Phone.
Head on past the break to read the superb answers Ronny provided us in the interview, it's truly worth the read. We'll also chuck in a few pics to show how his workstation at Gydar Industries has evolved through development.
It's been awhile since we covered NES emulators but it's nice to see one that is looking very promising: vNesLight by Nudua over at XDA. The latest version, beta 2, just became available and brings a ton of new changes (listed after the break).
As you can see above, we gave her the ol' college try and honestly? Not bad, not bad at all. We were able to enable sound (under options) which slowed it down a tad, but it was still nice to have. The controls, while sometimes in the way, were quite responsive and the overall framerate hovered just at or below 30 FPS. The ability to add your own ROMs seems easy enough and we're pretty psyched with this whole project. Of course, you'll need to side-load the XAP file, so only dev-unlocked phones need apply. Remember, Nudua is looking for user feedback and beta testers, so lend the man a hand and give him some feedback. Head to this thread for more info.
Full changelog after the jump...
We'll just leave this here for now. Don't worry, we'll post more this weekend after we had some time to play, then we're sure we'll have a few conversations with some folks at XDA. Lets just say there are some interesting apps on here and our geek cred is intact.
