| August 7, 2012 | 1 Reply

You might have played Connect 4 as a kid and it might just be me who hasn’t grown up but I still find it a lot of fun. In this free game, you can play against the phone or play against real people online. There’s even a chat function as well as a view of the global leaderboards.

There are so many versions available at marketplace, I actually wasn’t sure which one it was. The developer is SilverSprings and we’ll definitely be checking out more of their apps.

Here’s a demo on the Nokia N97:

Wow, it seems offscreen who made the N97 version also have one for Lumia.
