If you like playing games against other human players, you are going to love Neon Battleground. It's an online multiplayer shooter that has just released on Windows Phone, and will be going soon to Android, iOS, and the Web. The game is simple. You pilot a ship that can fire lasers. Shoot down other ships and collect coins.

We have installed it on our Nokia Lumia 930 and we've been having a hard time putting it away. Check out our gameplay video to see if it's something you might be interested in.

Dark Lands is a wonderfully animated endless runner game for your Windows Phone. The game not only challenges you to see how far you can run but also how long you can survive attacks from a wide range of enemies that includes goblins, orcs and skeletons. You also have much tougher bosses to battle scattered throughout your endless run.

The game was updated today, bringing Dark Lands to version 1.2.1, which brings a host of performance improvements, new enemies and a new story based gaming mode with forty challenging levels of game play.

EmojiHunt is a match-three styled game for Windows Phone that, as you would guess, calls on you to find matches of three or more of the same styled emoji.

The game has forty-eight levels of play, each requiring you to hunt down particular sets of emoji before time runs out. While the game premise sounds easy, you might be surprised how hard it is to identify matching emoji.

Available for 512MB devices, EmojiHunt is a colorful, challenging match-three styled game that isn't a bad time waster.

Major Mayhem blasts onto Windows Phone as a free game

Major Mayhem is now available for Windows Phone. This is a fun shooter that's been available on Windows 8.1 and joined the Windows Phone Store a few days ago. But before that it became really popular on Android and iOS. Let's go ahead and check it out on Windows Phone.

Good news and bad news, folks. The good news is Tentacles: Enter the Mind, a game that has been on Windows 8.1 for some time is also on Windows Phone. Even better, the game is an Xbox LIVE title with Leaderboards, Achievements, and Highscore. Because the game is a universal app, you also get one of the first instances of cloud saves and being able to continue your game on multiple devices. All of that is filed under 'awesome'.

The bad news is like the Windows 8.1 game, the Windows Phone variant, for some odd reason is region restricted. If we hazard a guess, Press Play and Microsoft are easing out this game to see how all of those cloud saves and newfangled universal features handle in the real world. In addition, they were also likely waiting for the Phone counterpart to launch to 'go big.'

Iaculator is an arcade space-shooter Windows Phone game that takes elements from classic games such as Asteroids and Galaga to create a mildly entertaining time waster of a game where you are tasked with destroying everything in sight.

The game has potential but the pace of the game drags at times to the point of being too easy. Iaculator isn't a total wash with nice graphics, the ability to use points earned to upgrade your ship and a decent range of weapons to deploy.

Available for low-memory devices, Iaculator Free Space Shooter isn't a bad gaming option to have in your Windows Phone library. It just could use a little fine-tuning.

We mentioned the release of the new Windows Phone game World of Rabbit - The Crossing over the weekend and it made a nice first impression. The game is the sequel to the popular World of Rabbit - The Dig that landed in the Windows Phone Store a couple of years ago and shares the same entertaining game play, colorful graphics and animations as the original.

Where The Dig was more of a time management game, The Crossing takes on more of an arcade style of game play. The rabbits will take to the high seas to visit the ancient rabbit islands to collect forgotten artifacts. Sounds easy enough but the seas are infested with annoying robots that are dead set on destroying the rabbits and their ship.

Available for low memory devices, World of Rabbit - The Crossing is a nice follow-up game to the original. Plus you have the bonus features of unlockable 3D printable toys (for those with a 3D printer lying around) and World of Rabbit wallpapers.

If you enjoyed playing Manuganu, a fun 3D platform game we've reviewed last year, then you're going to love the sequel. Manuganu 2 brings back many features from the original, but adds new ways of getting around. You run, jump, roll, fly, and swim to the end of each level while dodging obstacles and enemies. It has been available on iOS for about a month, and has just been released for Windows Phone and Android devices.

We've installed it on our Nokia Lumia 930. Head past the break to watch some gameplay on video.

Today's announcements from Microsoft at Gamescom have been pretty exciting for console gamers. We saw the announcement of a brand new theme park simulator, ScreamRide, for Xbox One and 360, as well as fresh looks at several upcoming Xbox One games like Halo: The Master Chief Collection. And hey, Quantum Break looked pretty exciting in motion to boot.

But the real bombshell of the presentation was the news that Rise of the Tomb Raider from Square-Enix and Crystal Dynamics will be exclusive to Xbox One in 2015! Tomb Raider has been a mainstay gaming series since the Playstation One and Sega Saturn days, with this year's HD remake of the Tomb Raider reboot gracing both Xbox One and Playstation 4. But the sequel Rise won't show up on the Playstation 4, giving Microsoft a big peacock of a feather in its cap.
