    the only game I've seen that was worthy of a download was that monkey game.i have every game that everyone says Is basically the top games on the platform. The game selection on wp8 isn't getting better, if anything it is getting worse. I downloaded a bunch of games on my iPhone this week but 1 or 2 on WP. Microsoft seriously needs to start doing something to catchup. You can't grow the platform.with apps that look like flash games from 1999.

    monkey challenge. It has graphics similar to donkey kong country but higher resolution. Looks nice.

    Here's a list of games I liked enough that I went and bought them:
    Contre Jour
    Crimson Dragon
    iLomilo
    Jet Car Stunts
    Little Acorns
    Mirror's Edge
    Mush
    Parachute Panic
    Dice Battles +
    Doom And Destiny (free, it crashes too often but is a great game otherwise)
    Wordament (also free)


    I do think Windows Phone is seriously lacking when it comes to games in two ways. First, there simply isn't enough of a selection, but secondly, too many games aren't optimized for HD screens. I hope that's a trend that changes soon.

    I'm sorry I was looking at the name of a game on my iPhone. The game I was talking about is chimpact. Its a very simple game that you have to collect gems and bananas . But I love the graphics

    GeoDefense Swarm is one of the most difficult games I've ever played. I love it.

    Doom and Destiny but it's a little unstable. Great game that crashes every 10-15 minutes.

    Best I've recently downloaded is Dragon's Blade. It's a testament to how poor the Marketplace used to be for finding popular games because this has been around since WP7 and I never found it. If you like old school RPGs it's worth the 79p

    Both of the Geodefenses and Pacman DX are my most played. Dread vs. Zombies gets an honorable mention too, awesome time waster.

    I'm finding Wordament to be good fun. AlphaJax is also great. Wordament is hilarious though.
    Me: Hmm, let's try a rotation *rotates tiles*
    Me: Oh, there's a word *swipes in word*
    Phone: "DING!" *toast notification pops up titled Spin Cycle*

    I nearly dropped the phone in surprise as volume was on full, didn't see that achievement coming!

    Where's my water, great little game but it kills battery like mad.

    Also downloaded Reaction. Two player quick reaction game. Basic to look at but fun :) honestly give it a try.

    I would have bought Spy mouse but its too expensive on wp for my liking.

    I've found that almost every game I play drains the battery at an alarming rate, except maybe for the super basic stuff. For some games I experience roughly 10% drain for 20 minutes of play.

    If you dont want to spend your money, ook into bing rewards, you get points for searching, and you can use the points for things, like amazon gift cards, skype scredit..etc, but I use mine for WP8 markekplace money, its about 525 bing points for $5 in the phones store, or 160 for $1.25 you can earn up to 15 points a day, but its easy & most importantly you can help support the devs who make good products for us without really spending your own money. Hopefully, that will bring other devs to our platform

    Drive hard taxi might be one to watch. It needs work but it could be a great game. Reminds me of die hard trilogy taxi game.
