I remember when I was a kid my first ever game that I played on the computer was the original StarCraft. I was at my godmother’s family and they had a computer with StarCraft installed. Her son asked me if I played before. I obviously didn’t. He started a custom map I believe, entered some cheat codes and let me play.

I honestly didn’t had a clue what I was doing, but the cheat codes kept me alive and eventually I won the match, with a little help. It’s been almost a decade and a half since it’s initial release, and almost at its 10 years anniversary,  Blizzard launched its sequel: StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty. Read on to find out if the game is worth your while!

I’m a huge fan of simulators, and the majority of my articles on Windows.Appstorm are about them. I’ve recently discovered one that is the perfect blend of accurate physics simulation, coupled with the objective of being fun and none-too-serious. This game is called Kerbal Space Program and has gotten me hooked, now I’d like to share .

So what do you do? Well as of the latest Alpha version 0.15, you can build rockets and spaceplanes which you launch and fly yourself into orbit around a fictional earth-like planet called Kerbin with two moons, the Mun and Minmus. The pilots of your creations are the Kerbals, their dream is to go where no Kerbal has gone before.

These days, we can enjoy almost any kind of game on our smartphone devices — whether it’s a casual platformer, or a competitive first-person shooter. This may be all fine and dandy, but it has left one of my more favoured genres in the dust — strategy games!

Armed! is a bold title new title in this genre, one which certainly has its sights set on defining itself as the Windows Phone strategy outing. Does it succeed? Sort of. Read on for the breakdown.

I’m a video game history junkie, and I say that as the only guy I know that has the original 16-bit Sonic The Hedgehog soundtrack on my Windows Phone. Though I occasionally play some of the newer games, it’s always fun to go back to the old days and play a game of Galaxian.

But what would happen if you combine the greatness of a classic arcade game and the graphical superiority of an arcade game released today? You would get Chromatic. Chromatic is a 2D shooter game that has its roots in a classic space war game but with a different twist. Let’s take a look.

We all love cats, or at least most of us do. There’s no doubting the feline charms of such animals: a soft, warm touch; a gentle purr, and an overall sense of comfort and companionship. Despite their boons, however, your average domesticated cat, or any household pet, lacks the ability to be taken wherever you travel, and be dismissed into digital oblivion at a whim.

This inhibition has been remedied in the form of Microsoft’s prolific Xbox 360 title: Kinectimals. This time round it’s been brought onto Windows Phone 7, and whilst it may not be a ‘game’ in the traditional sense of the word, it is still a great deal of fun.

Today, I would like to go off the beaten path a little and share a little-known first person shooter with you that I have been enjoying for years. Sauerbraten is an arena-based first-person-shooter with many aspects that resemble the all-time classic Quake 3.

Being highly addictive and always impressive to play, Sauerbaten is an ideal combination of fun weapons and fast gameplay. Read on for my full review.

As I promised in my Flight Simulator article, today I am reviewing the Orbiter Space Simulator. A single-man project created by Dr. Martin Schweiger, Orbiter has existed for around five years.

Despite being a single-man project, Orbiter is beautifully made with the greatest care and attention to detail put into making it realistic, and enjoyable.
