Countdown to 2013 Windows Phone Games [UPDATE]

By Michelle Balsan, 6 years ago
Update #2: Kinectimals (WP) has also gone live. You can download that one right here. It, too, is down to $0.99 from $2.99. Also, as Microsoft has now updated the list at to include all of the titles available, the original list at the bottom of this story has been updated to reflect that.

Update: It's come to our attention that Contre Jour (WP) is also on sale. As it appears on the phone Marketplace, but not on the list at, we're not sure if this Countdown deal will operate differently, so be sure to grab it quickly! Like the other titles listed below, the game is marked down to $0.99 from its original $2.99 price. You can download it right here. We're also aware that Kinectimals (WP) was originally included in this promotion, but as it's not yet discounted and isn't on the countdown list, we can only assume that it's not going to be discounted at this time. If something changes, however, we will be sure to bring that news to you.
