Angry Monkey Run, a Windows Phone with potential but still a little work is needed

17

Angry Monkey Run is another endless runner gaming option for Windows Phone 8. The game has simple mechanics, nice graphics and can be a little on the frustrating side as far as game challenge is concerned.

The story behind the game has the monkey's girlfriend being snatched up by zookeepers that does not sit well with the monkey. Your job is to guide him through the jungle to save his girlfriend.

Angry Monkey is available for low-memory devices and isn't a terrible game. The game has potential but Angry Monkey seems to lack the pop other endless runner options have.

80

Like Nokia, Samsung makes their own apps for their branded Windows Phones in an attempt to differentiate themselves from the competition.

Juiced Wireless Charger Pad review

Juiced Wireless Charger Pad review

Microsoft Surface owners might remember Juiced Systems as the seller of the super useful Surface Adapters, which squeeze a bunch of extra functionality out of the Surface tablets' single USB ports. Juiced sells a variety of unique USB hubs for mobile devices. All very good, but our Windows Phones can't use 'em.

Still, owners of certain Windows Phones like the Lumia 920 or those with the wireless charging cover can certainly benefit from the Juiced Wireless Charger Pad. The pad is tiny and ultrathin, providing a stylish and affordable way to pump power into phones that support Qi wireless charging. It draws that power from a micro-USB cable, providing a clear advantage over Nokia's Wireless Charging Plate.

Ms. Splosion Man for Xbox LIVE finally becomes available for Windows Phone 8

85

Back in April 2013, Ms.Splosion Man arrived for Windows Phone users with Xbox LIVE support. The game is based on of the famous – and hilarious – XBLA game originally developed by Twisted Pixel. The only problem is the game is only for Windows Phone 7.x, meaning those with Windows Phone 8 were unable to partake in the wacky platformer adventure. At the time, Microsoft informed us that they had no intentions to update the game for Windows Phone 8, making this game almost dead in the water upon release.

Pinball FX2 coming to Xbox One at the end of July

Pinball FX2 is a bittersweet game for many Windows Phone gamers. A Windows Phone version of the popular Xbox 360 game was supposed to come along in 2012 (see our interview), but it turned into vaporware (unofficial cancellation) instead. At least it did come out on Windows 8, giving tablet and PC gamers plenty of pinball goodness to enjoy.

The Xbox One is still a new console and doesn't have a pinball game to its name. That will soon change with the arrival of Pinball FX2! Zen Studios' epic pinball platform has long been announced for Microsoft's latest console as part of the ID@Xbox program. And now the Xbox One version has an official release date: July 31. The base game will cost nothing and includes a full table for free! Read on for more details and a list of tables that will be available to buy at launch.

BitLocker and Lumia Cyan causing issues for Windows Phones running Preview for Developers

179

The Lumia Cyan update has only just started rolling out for the Lumia 625 and Lumia 925, but already we're seeing some of the first bugs come to light. According to a lengthy thread on the Nokia support forum, consumers are experiencing issues after upgrading their Lumia Windows Phones running the 8.1 Preview for Developers and using BitLocker full disk encryption.

The BitLocker encryption appears to cause the smartphone to hang on boot, making it unusable. All that's presented to the user is a message to connect the device to a PC. Luckily, there's a solution, but it requires a full reset the Windows Phone using Nokia's software suite.
