There's clearly a mix here of compatibility tweaks, for both specs and platform, but it's good to see that, now that Windows Phone 8.1 is out the door, Microsoft has managed to spare resources to bolster the Store.

Now, what about your own favourite games for Windows Phone that ended up being abandoned? I'd like to see Tiger Woods 12 (shown below) make a come back, for starters! Any other suggestions for Microsoft to turn its attention to?
