A couple of the latest app news at WPC.

First up, I fired up my Nokia Lumia 920 to get my hands on these freebies 🙂 I’ve had Assassin’s Creed on my N8 and I just didn’t want to buy it all over again to play beyond the trial. But now it’s FREEE. So is Earthworm Jim – a pretty fun game.

I think some other games that were once paid Xbox Live apps also turned free some  days ago. I forgot which.

Secondly, something called “SCRUFF” (not sure what it means in this context) is apparently coming to Windows Phone. I’ve never heard about it before but it apparently already has 4 million members. WPC says there are other apps like this called Growlr (??) and Grindr (males for males/friends?). I think there’s also something called Blendr (general dating/friends?) and Brenda (females for females/friends?). From what I gather, they’re all a bit like Instragram in the social-picture sharing sense I guess, well, no I think they’re actually more about hooking up. Why not.  Valentine’s day soon. Unfortunately, none of those are in the store (and only “SCRUFF” on the coming soon list) but apparently there are already alternatives.

Cheers Dan for the tip!

    It seems kind of GAY that these aren’t also available for 7.8…

      I downloaded Assassin’s Creed and Earthworm Jim for my Lumia 900. I went to the Windows Phone website and sent it wirelessly to my device. At the time, both were still showing $4.99 in the marketplace on my phone, but not via the browser on my PC.

        Hmmmm let me see…

    Most gay people have an iPhone. I suppose you could call it a gay phone


    (Something to do with apps I think…)

    Jay: haha you are so funny…. =D Btw the app you mentioned is not Blendr but “Bender.” It’s a male to male app and also available for iOS and Android. Ever since, the app developer complain a lot about Microsoft. Microsoft doesn’t allow them to know how many people has downloaded the apps and Microsoft would not pay their revenue up until 6 months late. So, the developer is disappointed and make the “Bender” app for Windows Phone into abandoned.
    =_=a what’s in Microsoft mind…..

    Nokia Lumia 920, Windows Phone 8 Stroe: still this game cost 4,99. It is not free.

  • Celestin

    Would be nice if this was legit but the games are still full price in both the phones store and in the webstore. Maybe if you guys could post some instructions or actually check on the requirements then the rest of us could find this useful. But alas, this is crap and we’re all boned. Thanks Nokia Blog! <3

    I’m looking at the RT store, waiting for Senna to buy these.

    1. Last Gun
    2. Nightmare from the deep
    3. Abyss, Wraiths of Eden
    4. Dark Arcane, the carnival
    5. Hydro Thunder Hurricane

    I thought about getting them for my Surface but will now wait for Nokia Senna. Are these good games? Graphics look good.

    I’ll pass on Assassin’s Creed. Wasn’t a big fan of the PC version (luckily I borrowed the game from a friend instead of buying it). Might consider Earthworm Jim, though. Brings back old memories of playing it on the PC many years ago.

      Sometimes it’s better to leave old games as good memories…
