    These look promising, hopefully more will go out and purchase these phones so more games can come out smile

    Several of those look great. I'm glad I got a WP7 and would recommend it to anyone. Glad to see a full, live force of games coming to! Any known release dates for any of these yet? That word one looks like something I would enjoy on my phone.

    Holy. Freaking. Crap.
    Most of those games look absolutely amazing!

    The first one (Bug Village) reminds me of A Kingdom for Keflings.
    The chicken drop looks like some crazy, stupid fun.
    Kinectimals on the WP7. EPIC. =D And imposing them over pics on your camera roll is a great add.
    Gravity puzzles.
    A strategy fighting game? Pure win.
    A schmup that really would work on a mobile.
    And finally, the awesomeness of that Mush game. I love colorful games.

    These all look so fantastic! The WP7 as a pocket system is really becoming serious for mobile gaming and I couldn't be happier! =)

    wow! nice collection of different titles. Now the important question: how many will make it to Europe? I can't see Text Twist make it to Europe, as any other word puzzle game to this date is US only.

    These look great, but I hope they are affordable. Some of these I would be willing to stretch to $5 but $7 to $10 is too much.

    I hope that they keep them low so people will buy them.

    It would be good if they started doing more than one title release a week again. Especially with the rate of everything disappearing from the marketplace. I really like the look of the collapse game.

    Wow - some promising games in there.

    As a note - would definitely recommend the Windows Hpone 7 to anyone ... more than just a "viable alternative" to iPhones and other smartphones - it is a really good interface.

    Have a Samsung Omnia handset and some of the games on there (ilomilo comes to mind) are just stunning. Just as importantly, the functionality of the WP7 set-up, the ease of use of the interface and the appearance are brilliant.

    Have only had the phone for 10 days and already had people asking me about it - generally they think it is an iPhone but my counter to that is: "No, its better than that, its a WP7". That gets them intrigued.

    The only thing that worries me a bit, from an Australian perspective, is that the number of apps in the marketplace for WP7 is a little lacking. Lack of brand recognition here doesn't help, but many of the developers seem to be holding off for the Mango update and other handset manufacturers to get involved.

    Some Australian orgs have come out with good WP7 apps. Kudos to them. Let's hope more do so in the next little while.

    Text Twist! Finally I was really confused when I couldn't find then when I got my WP7. The rest of these games look pretty good too.
    I miss the good old days of WW2 Call of Duty

    I wouldn't suggest the WP7 if you like Geocaching. I spend more then 3/4 my free time Geocaching, and frankly? The WP7 sucks for it. I frequently switch to my android to Geocache. I use my WP7 just for achievements now.

    I would really enjoy text twist on my phone! That would be a really fun game to play when bored at work or other places besides home. Can't believe how much more support WP7 is getting but I'm really glad to see it is!
