Kinectimals for Xbox LIVE on Windows Phone roars back into the Marketplace

For those who missed the connected Kinectimals last week, which made a "teaser" appearance, you'll be happy to know it's back for your enjoyment. Priced at $2.99, the game has garnered mostly positive reviews with comparisons to Nintendogs but with the further bonus of having some iteration with your Xbox/Kinect setup.

As Paul wrote last week:

"Kinectimals is the portable version of Frontier Software and Microsoft’s feline-themed Kinect game. Players can choose one of five kitties or import an existing cat from the 360 version (which we haven’t tried just yet). Then it’s time to teach your kitty tricks by performing swiping motions, play catch, complete challenges, and buy lots of accessories. So far Kinectimals is a surprisingly faithful port of the retail Xbox 360 version, and it doesn’t even have the original’s obnoxious announcer, always a plus. The Achievements are also super easy. And last but not least, it’s Nodo compatible!"

You can grab the game right here in the Marketplace. Check our hands on vid with the game from Nokia World after the break...

It's doesn't even support Mango....I'm really starting to question this platform. I'm trying to give it a chance, but if Microsoft doesn't even update their OWN APPS (Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Kinectimals, etc..) for Mango support then how do they expect developers to follow suit. I hate Android, but I'm that much closer to going back to my Nexus S....With no compelling hardware to make me stay (Sprint's fault), idk how much longer I can stay with Windows Phone.

Their own apps? What? Last I checked Angry Birds was made by Rovio and Kinectimals was made by Frontier Studios. Wtf are you on about?

Tomasz S. says:

It works fine on Mango, so what is your point exactly?

Juice#WP says:

His point is you didn't tell everyone that the bears dlc and all other add-ons (build a bear) etc for kinectimals do not work in the wp7 version of the game... That right there makes it 10 times less then they make it out to be..

Tomasz S. says:

But that is not mango-related, isn't it?
