Big Business Deluxe opens shop on Windows 8 and RT

20

Last week we reviewed Big Business Deluxe, the latest city building game for Windows Phone from Russian publisher Game Insight. The game combines traditional city building tropes with some business management mechanics, allowing players to create, process, and sell products as they grow their cities. The economic focus and variety of businesses players can manage make for a smart and interesting take on the genre.

Big Business Deluxe launched on Windows Phone 8, but not tablets and PCs. In our review, we promised that a Windows 8 version would be coming later. Not too much later, it turns out. The game has just launched on Windows 8 and RT today! Now everyone in the Windows ecosystem can start his or her own business empire in this simple but addictive simulation game.

MPOW Muze Bluetooth Stereo Headphones - Review

46

We've covered MPOW accessories before and find them to be a nice, budget minded option to consider. One of the company's latest offerings is the Muze, a Bluetooth over-the-ear headphones with noise cancelling technology and hands-free calling features.

As with other headphones we've looked at from MPOW, the Muze is nicely constructed and modestly priced. Performance was good and if you don't mind the over-the-ear style, the Muze headphones are worth considering.

Is your Lumia 930 Windows Phone a hot potato?

520

As the Lumia 930 becomes more widely available, we are picking up on reports of the Windows Phone getting warm. Windows Phone Central Forums member Snapples has started a discussion on this and it appears Snapples is not alone.

We've also heard some grumblings about the Lumia 930 having a purple hue but the overheating seems to be taking center stage. The warmth (described as very, very hot) was first noticed by Snapples during the initial set-up and installation of apps. Thinking this was just a passing fad, the heat returned while browsing the web or sending a text.

Contest – Win a copy of Jack Lumber or Snuggle Truck!

187

Every now and then a new game developer joins the Windows Phone ecosystem and you just wonder how we ever lived without them. One such company is Owlchemy Labs, a small studio who recently published two stellar games: Snuggle Truck, a 2D driving/stunt game, and Jack Lumber, the best lumberjack game on the market.

Last week, our Jack Lumber review reminded some readers of Monty Python's Flying Circus. So "Hey," we thought. "Why not arrange a little Monty Python-themed contest and give away some Owlchemy prizes?" That's what we're doing this weekend. You guys can enter to win the Steam versions of Jack Lumber ($7.49 value) and Snuggle Truck ($4.99 value). Play a bit on your PC , Windows 8 device, or Mac and get an idea of what the Windows Phone games are like. And it's really easy to enter!
