Angry Birds, Doodle Jump, Plants vs. Zombies, Hydro Thunder Go, Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I and geoDefense Heading to Windows Phone 7 Mobiles

Written By Sam on 26 February 2011

The wait for the most popular smartphone game “Angry Birds” for Windows Phone 7 mobiles has come to an end. The game which is already running on the other mobile operating systems such as Android, Maemo, web OS, and the Symbian 3 will be released as part of the spring lineup of games. Microsoft has unveiled the games at the company’s Spring Showcase games event in San Francisco and is part of the new Must Have Games program for Windows Phone. These games will start arriving from 6th of April 2011. Even though Microsoft did not mention the pricing of these games, I guess they would be available for $0.99, the same pricing as that of the iOS versions. These games are Xbox friendly meaning an access to achievements, leader boards and huge market wanting to access the competitive game. Most of the below games are in the Top 10 Best Paid iPhone Games list.

Must-Have Games On Windows Phone 7

Angry Birds

This is one of the top games on the Apple Store and now it is heading to Windows Phone 7 mobiles. The survival of the angry birds is at stake. Dish out revenge on the green pigs who stole the birds’ eggs. Use the unique destructive powers of the angry birds to lay waste to the pigs’ fortified castles. Angry Birds features hours of gameplay, challenging physics-based castle demolition and lots of replay value. Each of the 195 levels requires logic, skill, and brute force to crush the enemy. Also you might get seasonal updates similar to the iOS versions.

Plants vs. Zombies

This is also one of the most played game on iOS devices. Each zombie has its own special skills, so think fast and plant faster to combat them all. Be careful how you use your limited supply of greens and seeds — as you battle the fun-dead, obstacles such as a setting sun, creeping fog and a swimming pool add to the challenge. With five game modes to dig into, the fun never dies!

Doodle Jump

Jump, jump, jump to the top, top, top with Doodle Jump, the runaway hit for Windows Phone 7! Guide the Doodler on a springy journey up the never-ending sheet of graph paper to see how far you can climb. Leap from platform to platform, finding your way higher and higher using brilliant contraptions such as springs, propeller hats, and jet packs. Avoid broken platforms, menacing black holes, UFOs, and baddies. Blast them with your nose balls!

Hydro Thunder Go

Hydro Thunder Go is a remake of the highly acclaimed classic arcade racer. Blast through 12 ferocious courses with the powerboat of your choice and compete against 15 devious opponents. In addition to visually stunning environments and insane track layouts, the ever-changing water conditions keep the races varied and interesting — everything from fluidly billowing waves to clear, still water, visualized with reflection and refraction effects.


Obliterate a horde of vibrant, vector-styled enemies in this fast-paced tower defense game. Devastate creeps with blasters, lasers, and missiles, and watch their energy debris swirl through the gravity wells of your vortex towers. Demonstrate your pixel-blasting skill to all your friends on Xbox LIVE leaderboards, and earn Achievements as you hone advanced defense strategies.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I

Featuring enhanced gameplay elements, including the classic Sonic Spin Dash and the versatile Homing Attack, Sonic the Hedgehog 4 picks up right where Sonic and Knuckles left off. Dr. Eggman’s back, and in an effort to finally rid himself of Sonic, he revisits — and improves — the very best of his creations. Get ready for the next chapter in an all-new epic 2-D saga built for old and new fans alike.

Personally I feel that Microsoft should have tried out new games instead of converting the very popular games to their own platform. Anyways Windows Phone 7 users stay tuned to hear about the pricing and other news about these games.
