    Loving my new Windows Phone but am finding it hard to explore the store for games that might not show up in one of the categories. For instance, I wouldn't know Civ Rev was on there if I hadn't googled some recommendation articles. So to try to get a variety of good recommendations we should all post a single on of our favorites.

    I just got started but so far Crimson Dragon stands out.

    What kinds of games do you like?

    I'm not much of a gamer, but I do like Wordament.

    Carcassonne and Zombies are nice if you like board games. Physi Bricks is fun and of course there's always Angry Birds. Achtung is fun. I gravitate towards games that let me listen to audiobooks while I play (i.e. no reading or story or too much thinking).

    Modern Combat 4 online multiplayer is fun but it takes few hours getting your *** kicked before you learn controls. But after that it's awesome!

    Hi, maybe try my brand new game called Cowmmando. It is a shooter but it's got an accelerometer implemented for movement which is a wonderful experience. It is reading phone movement up/down/left/right pretty well. Check cowmmando.com and also this forum for my post about the game.

    I don't usually play games on my phone. But when I do, I play plants vs zombies and gravity guy mostly. Sometimes geo defense.

    Overall Favorite: Carcassonne. If you want to play online, check out this guide I wrote.

    Best Strategy: Skulls of the Shogun. Has a nice cross-platform, asynchronous multiplayer mode, and also a good single-player story.

    Best Puzzle: Hexic Rush: A unique twist on the genre with two very different modes that freshen things up, plus the Xbox achievements are challenging, but fair.

    Best Sports: NBA Jam. Unfortunately the multiplayer is spotty (I never got it to work), and the achievements are a grind, but overall, this game is still a blast.

    Best Word: (tie) AlphaJax, Wordament. Alphajax is like Scrabble; Wordament is like Boggle.

    Best Retro : Rocket Riot. A blast to pick up and play for a few minutes at a time.

    Best Shooter : Halo: Spartan Assault. The controls on this game are fantastic, the graphics are top-notch. It's a blast.

    Best Platformer : Mirror's Edge. A really cool side-scroller with fantastic music, great presentation, a good story, and intuitive touch screen controls.

    Bonus: here is a list of multiplayer games I've compiled.

    NBA Jam is on Windows Phone 8 store? No results when I search for it. I enjoyed it for iOS.

    Ah, Hexic... One of the only WinMo games I played consistently.

    I don't have a favorite, but I tripped over Space Scribble the other day it's pretty addictive.

    Zero Gravity is a pretty good space game. Reminds me of some of the old PC games like X2 in mobile form

    Ehh, ilomilo is OK. I really don't care for the camera on it, and it can be a bit boring after a bit. I think that Asphalt 7 might take the cake for me, when you consider how well the game works and that it is only $0.99. Similarly, Wordament is free and offers unlimited replay value.

    Wait, you're telling us all to take our Windows Phones and get a game on the iOS App Store?
