Lumiappaday #35: Shuffle Party demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800

| December 21, 2011 | 3 Replies

This lumiappaday is going to be brief. No review, just a demo and the usual descriptions. Not sure if this is going to be a temporary shortened format during the xmas exam period. I’ll do what I can to keep blogging but the app daily stuff might have to take a trimming.

This is an Xbox live title, a mix of shuffle board and bowling (though there are other modes). It’s a good looking game, and I really like how it includes your Xbox Live Avatar into it. BTW, yes, it would be a whole lot better to demo this if I knew how to play the game. The shufflebowling was easier though didn’t quite pay attention on how to play normal shuffleboard. This came up as a free Xbox live title so I thought I’d slot this in to the other reviews planned over the next few weeks.

    OMG! I would kick this game to the curb if I couldn’t score any points! The graphics looks great, and it’s cool that they include an ‘interactive’ avatar.

    I think a fun game for you to try (although maybe a bit expensive) is PvZ. It’s most certainly fun on a PC :)

      LOVE PVZ, completed it on my omnia. I was addicted to it, played that thing ALL THE TIME! haha. Want to cover it though there’s too much to show. I guess I’ll just show a level or two and do a quick glance at some of the extras on my omnia.
