Popular Xbox LIVE Games for Windows Phone Now Just 99 Cents

Xbox is celebrating the holidays with a 99 cent sale on several popular Xbox LIVE games for Windows Phone. And given that I actually own all of these games already, I can tell you that there are more than a few top-notch titles here. This is the time to buy.

Each of these games runs on Windows Phone 7.x as well as Windows Phone 8. And they’re all kid-friendly, too, so they’re ideal choices for Kid’s Corner, which I wrote about recently in Windows Phone 8 Tip: Share Your Phone Safely with Your Children.

Here’s the list:

Contre Jour

Blurring the lines between games and interactive art, Contre Jour welcomes you to a hauntingly beautiful world shaped by the interplay of light and darkness.

Doodle Jump

Leap from platform to platform, finding your way higher and higher using brilliant power-ups like springs, propeller hats, and jet packs.

geoDefense Swarm

With dizzying vectorized visuals, vexing challenges and highly kinetic gameplay, the thinking man's tower defense game returns.

iStunt 2

Hit the slopes for some serious shredding and perform impossible stunts, dodge deadly saws and do incredible jumps in a world where gravity laws have been broken.


Use your phone to visit the island of Lemuria and play with, care for and fall in love with your very own cub. Bring your pet with you wherever you go!


Discover the emotions in this award-winning exclusive, a quirky puzzle adventure that lets you change how your character feels.
