Cronus is an interesting puzzle game for your Windows Phone that is available for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8 devices.  The game puts you in a time travel machine and shoots you back in time to prevent some of history's most notable disasters such as Chernobyl or the Exxon Valdez oil spill.  You are tasked with establishing a safe flow of hazardous materials to prevent the calamity from happening. And you have to do it all under the clock.

Add a multiplayer mode, upgradable skills, a knowledge data base on the disasters you are trying to prevent, challenging game play and Cronus isn't too shabby of a Windows Phone game.  It can get a little busy with the story panels but you do have the option to skip the dialog and jump right into game play but overall, if you like puzzle games Cronus is worth a try.

Do you think you have quick reflexes? The Windows Phone game Naargh! may have something to say about that.

There's not much to the game but what's there is challenging and oddly addictive. Naargh! dares you to tap on all the red faces before times runs out.

It sounds simple but as the pace quickens, the game becomes painfully challenging. While Naargh! may make you yell "Aargh!" in frustration, the game has an addictive quality that pulls you back for more.

Manuganu is a 3D running/platformer styled game for your Windows Phone 8 device where you have to guide Manuganu across thirty challenging levels of play. You have dangers to jump over, slide under and dodge along the way.  You also have to collect blue stones and medallions as  you scamper across the platform to improve your scoring.

The 3D graphics helps Manuganu to stand out a little from the pack and while game play isn't nerve racking, Manuganu is challenging enough to keep from getting stale.  After playing Manuganu for a while, the game comes across as a quality, casual gaming title for your Windows Phone 8 devices.

We first caught wind that Ubisoft was planning on releasing a Windows Phone 8 specific version of Babel Rising 3D back during Casual Connect 2013. But the word on the street was that it wouldn't be Xbox enabled due to the lengthy certification process.

While we aren't sure what happened between then and now, Babel Rising 3D was released today and as an Xbox Windows Phone gaming title.

Super Speed Touch is a Windows Phone 8 game designed to test your powers of observation and reflexes. There's not a lot of flash with Super Speed Touch but it can be a challenging way to test your tapping skills.

Super Speed Touch as a very clean, no-nonsense appearance that doesn't have many bells and whistles.  And that may be the game's greatest weakness.  While Super Speed Touch isn't a bad Windows Phone game, I just can't help but think it could have a little more flash to prevent the game from getting stale too quick.

We first mentioned Dark Lands a few months ago. It's an action/adventure game for our Windows Phone that is being developed by Mingle Games and is one of the many projects associated with the Microsoft/Nokia sponsored AppCampus.

Dark Lands is an infinity running game that also has elements of a fighting and RPG game. A battle runner game if you will.

We have been given access to the beta version of Dark Lands and it makes a very admirable first impression. Graphics are well drawn up, game play challenging, and controls nicely responsive. It's a fast paced game that should appeal to many.

Minions Space Battle could use a little fine tuning but as is, it's worth a try.
