Hot Rod Racer


Since “Hot Rod” is in the title of the game you may have guessed this is drag racing. The goal, of course, is to beat your opponent to the finish line. Switching gears with precise timing greatly improves your chances of winning. There is more to it than just winning, though. Different game modes and challenges give you a variety of ways to play the game.

Jolly Fish

Jolly Fish looks like a pretty standard Flappy Bird clone, but it’s actually really well done. The gameplay is the same as Flappy Bird: simply tap the screen to make the jellyfish swim down. That’s right, in this version a tap makes the jelly fish go down. It’s a lot more difficult than it sounds. We also really love the graphics and music in this simple game.

Magnify (formerly FlipMag)

flipmag screens

FlipMag is a beautiful news/RSS reader for Windows Phone 8. It has many things in common with Flipboard, but it also stands on its own with some cool features. The design of the app is absolutely gorgeous. After choosing topics you’re interested in FlipMag creates a custom “start screen” with “tiles” for every news source.
