Quick hands on with Chillingo's Contre Jour for Xbox on Windows Phone

This morning we alerted to you this week's Xbox game for Windows Phone, Chillingo's Contre Jour. The popular physics puzzler landed at $2.99 in the Store and we approve, even if these types of games are getting a little played out.

Contre Jour features some great artwork, a nice slow paced feel and a huge assortment of levels, making it a great game for a long time. There's even a bonus level on board exclusive to Windows Phone.

We took it for a quick spin in the video above and we think you'll like it too. So read Paul's more in-depth write up on the game or pick it up here in the Store with a free trial.

I played the trial and it's not easy to deal with the controls, it's definitely more suited to tablets. I was ready to buy but I'm a bit hesitant now.

I already asked this so many times before, but I will ask again: Chillingo, where are CUT THE ROPE????
We wanna this ok ours windows phones 7.x and not for wp8. Please, make us happy.

DavidinCT says:

Bought it not even trying a trial. And I do not regret it.

Congratulations to chillingo about the amazing games that they develop but i cant understand why we must pay 2.99$ and iphone users 0.99$ for the exactly same games? I love the WP OS and everything about it but our marketplace realy s#*ks!!

JPDVM2014 says:

I understand the argument about the price difference, but you could make up the $2 difference by skipping a morning coffee. Or maybe getting change out of couch cushions? When WP has more marketshare, there will be more price parity...hopefully. Until then, I have no problem supporting developers that support WP. Especially with high quality titles like this.

GearDoGi says:

Ok dude i agree with you.But the problem for me is that the 2$ are going to multinational companies like EA and M$.I prefer to give 2$ to buy a coffee than to spend them to make MS even more richer!!And it's not a problem for the 2$ but if you make a sum of every 2 dollars you spend in the store then you will understand what i mean.Games that cost on any market (WP,android,ios) 2.99$ i will happily buy them.But i will no more buy games for 2.99$ that you can find in other stores for 0.99$
My first games on WP was Angry birds and fruit ninja (2.99$+2.99$) and after paying almost 6$ i was left with two totaly outdated games in contrast to the other stores.

P.S (Sorry for my bad english)

Please don't say this every time a game costs more than a dollar. It gets old quickly.

Market saturation

hoonigandad says:

3$ is still cheap! Costs That much to rent a movie or Xbox game for 24 hours!

Arsenic17 says:

Yeah the cheapest shitty XBLA game you can get is $5 and those games are garbage. Just pay $3 ..sheesh

Arsenic17 says:

I am stating the cheapest games on XBOX Live Arcade are $5. And those are usually bad for their price. You hardly will find a game cheaper than $10 on there from Microsoft. We should be lucky they don't charge more for these mobile games with achievements.

Looks like World of Goo graphics!  Sick!

scottaii says:

Yeah, good point, that's a great game too!

heatlight says:

> I'll do this level I've already done so I don't look like an idiot.
> This area has 200 levels! :o

heatlight says:

It doesn't have 200 levels. That's the amount of 'stars' you need to unlock that area.
