By litepink, 5 years ago
As you can see from the TrueAchievements front page, lots of exciting Xbox 360, Kinect, and XBLA news has been churning out of Gamescom. Today, Microsoft has shown that they are going at their Windows Phone 7 platform with full force, announcing a ton of new titles. Check out the new titles, as well as a Gamescom Windows Phone 7 video showcasing some of these new titles:

Fight Game Rivals
Well, technically displayed at E3, we'll preview it a bit here; In a rather interesting twist, this game is a turn based, strategy fighting game. A mobile device might be the right fit for something so daring.
Fight Game: Rivals


Gravity Guy
Tap the screen to change the gravity and guide Gravity Guy forward. Interesting to see multiplayer touted in this screen.

Kinectimals
Cuteness invades your phone, sure to raise a few eyebrows when you ask "who's a good boy!?" while sneaking in some gaming at work. Looks like you can take your little critters and impose them over your own camera roll too, although regular island locales are in store as well. My minds racing wondering if this will be the first title to feature WP7/Kinect/Xbox 360 connectivity that Microsoft has teased in the past. Perhaps this title could act as a 'companion' to it's Kinect big brother.

MUSH
This unique platformer has you drawing smiley faces and frowns, and using tilt controls to change the mood of your character.

Orbital
An addictive and colorful puzzler where your goal is to destroy orbs!

Shoot 1UP
Another XBLIG turned WP7 game; a promising trend for sure. Here you start with one ship and gradually and dozens more to make one giganta-ship.

Text Twist 2
You get two and half minutes to create as many words as you can with the random ones your given. Now how do you spell..."turd"?

Toy Soldiers Boot Camp
Brand recognition should do this shooting gallery type game well.
