Battle of the blue circle assistant: Harman Kardon infused Cortana Home assistant takes on Amazon Echo.

Cortana was one of the nicer things about Windows Phone. As a digital voice assistant, it seemed more human than either Siri or Google Now. Then Alexa came along and tried to bring that similar sort of interactivity into the home. It was surprising that it wasn’t Cortana trying to be all about your home […]

Lumiappaday #281: Battleship demoed on the Nokia Lumia 900 #XboxLive

| August 23, 2012 | 2 Replies

This is Battleship from EA Games. It’s the classic boardgame with a little splash of animation kicked in. Still as fun as ever. There’s a couple of modes I didn’t get the chance to look at: Salvo mode and Superweapon mode – those are available in the full version. #281) Battleship  Price:  £2.29 Link: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-GB/apps/b063ac72-deff-4ab6-b70d-6c93bd645a22 Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5P4lg1fC9oY […]

Lumiappaday #280: Earthworm Jim HD demoed on the Nokia Lumia 900 #XboxLive

| August 22, 2012 | 4 Replies

I used to love watching Earthworm Jim as a kid, and found my friend’s gameboy game of it really addictive. Here’s  Gameloft’s Earthworm Jim game demoed on the Nokia Lumia 900. For touch controls, they’re pleasingly very responsive. It might seem slightly overpriced at £3.99 and looking on that price alone I might agree. But […]

This is a pretty decent pool/snooker game with an online aspect (though not demoed here). Nice visuals, good game play. Some controls are a bit off (like pulling the cue stick and moving the camera about) but otherwise, a quite a fun experience. #278) Pool Pro Online 3  Price:  £2.29 Link: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/apps/062d24c2-d398-4cff-9515-1f542495d8c0 Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Gek8aoJAec Developer Blurb:   […]

This is just a demo of the game, Asphalt 5 on the Nokia Lumia 900. Not too keen on the accelerometer controls. I find them much too laggy in comparison to NFS (well underground anyway). Tap controls are much more responsive. #277) Asphalt 5  Price:  £2.29 Link: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/apps/20e77ac3-00c2-416e-8054-7d081afb73de Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGFMia1o5tM Developer Blurb: Get in, start up and […]

  There’s not really a lot to this game. You just draw loops around your enemies which sends them to some other dimension whilst you steal their souls.   #248)  The Revenants – Corridor of Souls™ Price:  £2.29/$2.99 Link: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/apps/efedf82b-add9-df11-a844-00237de2db9e Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxEnj7X51dY Developer Blurb:  The Revenants is a top down, touch-based action puzzle game created by Chaotic […]
