Fresh from my curated Windows Phone games directory, I'm catching up with some game title news on the platform. In this case a huge update to the popular Age of Empires: Castle Siege, with a changelog supplied by MSPU.

You can find Age of Empires: Castle Siege here in the Store if you haven't already acquired it. I gave it a mini-review around 18 months ago, but MSPU has the changelog for this big update:

  • Added 20 new scenarios that focus on basic tactics and gameplay strategy. These scenarios will help get new players ready for battle and allow existing players to hone their skills further.
