    hi dear

    in my wp 8.1 i did this
    first download xap apps as you did
    then open wifi or data connection
    Finally you will find install local apps in the store menu
    i did this with fifa 15 and other apps

    if you get any problem i will answer you and if it goes better please tell me because I put this question in my bookmark ;-) have fun with your Lumia my friend .

    Not sure but I think I read somewhere that you can do it with the app File Explorer. Find the game file with File explores and that tap the file and see if an option "install" appears.
    Good luck.

    Go to File Explorer (on Your Phone)>> search your downloaded file >> Click on it >> It Will give you the option to "install".
    It Works fine..
    I did with "Dead Trigger 2".

    Note:- Not all xap files work.

    First Go to 'settings'/ update and protection/for developers

    Second tick 'local app install'

    now go to file explorer and install the app (xap/appx)

    it worked with terraria
    (nokia lumia 520 windows phone 10 b10.0.10586.29

    Goto setting--> click update --> click for developers and in that u have to choose developer mode... Thats all. Now try again.
    NB: Only the .appx file can install in wp 10.. None other extension will not work. I have tried it... So only download .appx file or .appx bundle.
    After clicking the app, it will show a install icon click install. After that the screen will be blackout or exit. Wait for sometime. If nothing happening. Rename the file and try again.
