Console gamers might be aware that Rayman Legends just launched on Xbox 360 and other platforms this week. By all accounts, Legends is another sublime platformer like Rayman Origins before it. Awesome for Xbox owners, but how about mobile Windows platforms? Don’t they get any love?

Turns out they do! Windows 8 and RT users, anyway. Rayman Jungle Run, one of the finest Xbox Windows 8 games in town, got a major update recently. The free update adds 20 new levels, pushing Jungle Run’s grand total up to 70 levels. Pictures and impressions after the break!

Last week we reviewed the Windows Phone game Yatzy Online and found it to be a decent Yahtzee styled game except for some annoying advertising banners. Banners that cover up the top portion of the screen, preventing you access to a few menu options.

We just received word from the game's developers that this overlapping of the ad-banner shouldn't be happening. A fix will be going out over the next week or so to correct this issue and until then, the developer has suspended the ad service.

Some of us were stunned when myTube was pulled from the Windows Phone Store, with many wondering if it was a cease and desist request from Google. Luckily, it wasn't and the issue was simply a bad XAP uploaded to the store for consumers to update to. Thus the app was pulled while a patch was implemented. Here we are, the popular YouTube app is now once again available.

A couple of weeks ago we interviewed Canadian indie developer the Coding Jar about their premiere Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 game, Fling Theory. We discussed the game’s origins, how it plays, and the studio’s future plans.

What Coding Jar didn’t reveal was that the game would be getting an update soon. They’ve just published a major update to the Windows Phone version that makes the game entirely free to play, with no need to pay for new levels. The update for the Windows 8 version is still pending. Full details and the download link after the break!

Foundbite is a unique concept. We previously looked at the beta stage kicking off with a superb looking app that allows you to capture photos with a whole new level of depth. Not only can you casually browse a gallery of photos taken by friends, but you'll be able to hear ambience recorded with the Windows Phone when the shots were taken. It's a great way to immerse yourself.

Flixster and Netflix have been on Windows Phone for quite a while. In fact, Netflix was shown off on stage at the Windows Phone 7 Series unveil at MIX back in March 2010. Both apps were available for consumers when Windows Phone went on sale at the end of 2010. They’ve received small updates here and there along the way. Both just received two updates today, let’s check them out.

It hasn't been long since the ESPN Fantasy Football app lost it's Nokia exclusivity and became available for all Windows Phones and now we are already seeing an update push out for the fantasy football app.

The version 1.2.0.1 update adds the feature to allow ESPN Insiders to manage push notifications. While the change log is brief, very brief, we are also hearing that more team controls may have been added (don't hold us to that).

Track My Life is nifty Windows Phone app that records your travels to give you an idea where you spend your life. The app went from a rather broad tracking app to a more refined accounting of where you've been.

The Windows Phone 8 version of Track My Life was recently updated to version 4.0.3.5.  The update includes a handful of bug fixes and user interface improvements as well as the ability to add more information to your stops.  It allows you to not only see where you've been but add a description to that location, associate any photos taken with your Windows Phone at that location and categorize it as a pleasure or work stop.

Fhotoroom is a feature rich photography app for your Windows Phone. It is part photo editor, part camera app, and part photo sharing network. Which includes sharing to Fhotoroom's network, Facebook, Flickr, Twitter and Instagram (via Instagraph).

The Windows Phone 8 version of Fhotoroom was recently updated to version 9.1.3 which adds a few tweaks to the user interface, but most notably allows Fhotoroom to handle the larger images files generated by DSLR cameras and the Nokia Lumia 1020.  Registered users (free) can now work with larger high resolution image files that range from 8MP to 25MP. We've even had success handling the 38MP high resolution image files from the Lumia 1020.

Nokia Windows Phone owners will have used Lumia Pusher in the past to see if the plethora of apps and system apps installed require updating. The app has unfortunately been pulled for some reason, but fear not as another developer has picked up the baton and launched NOKIA COLLECTION.

The new app shares similar functionality to Lumia Pusher in that you can hit multiple entries to be beamed to the store. It's a solid replacement.

When I reviewed Order & Chaos Online last week, I didn’t beat around the bush – I called it the single best Xbox Windows Phone game. No other game compares in scale, depth, or online multiplayer functionality. But that doesn’t mean it’s a perfect game, either. Like any big game it suffers from an assortment of bugs and glitches.

On Friday, Gameloft published what will hopefully be the first of many Order & Chaos Online updates. This particular update (which requires users to redownload the full 1012 MB game) doesn’t fix all of the known bugs, but at least it’s a start. Head past the break for details!

A few weeks back we showed you guys Grin for Windows Phone. It was (and still is) the best app for accessing Imgur (www.imgur.com) on Windows Phone, a site dedicated to free image hosting and sharing, often considered to power sites like Reddit. The latest update that came out today widens the gap between itself and any potential third-party Imgur apps. Let’s check it out.
