Review: Words by Post

icon

When I reviewed "Chess by Post" in November, I mentioned in the comments that the idea of playing with people around the world one move at a time and then waiting for the reply, would be great for a Scrabble type game. Of course,  developer Jeff Cole now has another "...by Post" game: "Words by Post". I said then it would go on the reviews list, and since that moment, I've not stopped playing.

Review: Let's Golf 2

icon

Gameloft's golf simulation credibility isn't in doubt by now, in that it has mastered the physics and graphics needed to bring the 'good walk spoiled' to smartphones. Where it all goes slightly wrong is the introduction of rabbits, rhinos, horses and... super powers to what should be, in essence, a fairly straightforward sport. Do the cute characters, animals and extras enhance phone golf for you? Your decision, but my review, below.

Review: BBC Radio Player

icon

Do you know one of the great things Windows Phone can do when you are travelling (as I was last week)? Listening to Ken Bruce's Popmaster; or Sunday Concert on Radio 3; even The Shipping Forecast is enough to bring a tear to my eye when abroad. With a data connection and Igneous Software's BBC Radio Player, you can listen in as well.

Review: Nokia Lumia 800 - Part 2a - Camera

icon

So far we've had an exhaustive run down of the Nokia Lumia 800 hardware from Rafe, including the background to its development. In this, part 2a of our Lumia 800 coverage, I look in some depth at the device's camera - has the size constraint meant a compromise too many? What's unique about this particular camera design? How does it compare to other Nokia hardware? And can quality and performance be improved further with software upgrades to Nokia's first Windows Phone?

Review: Farm Frenzy 2

icon

It's not Farmville, but Aalawar's Farm Frenzy 2 (a sequel to Farm Frenzy, which is naturally not available for Windows Phone) is almost as addictive, but without the overpowering sense of exploiting your online friends for more credits to do stuff. The cute farm graphics are there, but this is more a mix of arcade reactions and quick decisions to reach your goals than the careful planning and long waits of Farmville.

Review: Plex

icon

Plex feels old and new at the same time. This 3D puzzle game asks you to drop coloured tiles onto other tiles, and if the colours match (either horizontally or vertically), the tiles are destroyed. A simple principle, but once you wrap it around a globe, throw in some 3D graphics, and some very smart design, you have one of the best tile based games I've found on Windows Phone.

Review: Rowi

icon

Twitter is all about the moment. It's all about getting you to your messages. And let's face it, sometimes the People Hub doesn't quite cut it (fx:cough, direct messages). Here's where having a phone built around applications can help out. Rowi is one of many third party Twitter clients, and I've almost settled on it as my Twitter client of choice. Only one thing lets it down, but I can look past that to a genuinely useful application. So should you.

Review: HTC Titan

icon

The HTC Titan. It's huge, it's startlingly capable, loud and impressive, it's the best showcase for Windows Phone yet - but I'm still not convinced that I'd like to buy one. Find out why in my (equally huge) review. Despite massive improvements in component quality for this latest generation of HTC hardware and despite a comprehensive software package, there are elements of the design that I'm simply not convinced by...

Review: Bump Out

icon

I like puzzle games, so when there's one that feels like a nice twist on a good concept (in this case a mix of clearing a game grid and the use of Newtonian momentum) I'm all for it and jumping on the download. Bump Out certainly meets the initial requirement, but as I continued to play, something wasn't quite right.

Review: 4th and Mayor

icon

Since the official client for Foursquare updated itself for Mango, many people, myself included, have been waiting for an update to the third party Foursquare client '4th and Mayor'. Now that Jeff Wilcox has updated the client, which is going to be my chosen check-in companion?
