iStunt 2 coming to Xbox Live for Windows Phone

Xbox Live comes a new title that, despite the winter is now behind us, leads us to assume the role of a snowboarder struggling with all kinds of stunts on the snow.
The game gives us a 2D vertically scrolling and in a manner similar to Sonic will ask us to collect stars scattered through the various levels so as to increase our score. Also interesting is the pattern of the paths that goes from linearity and there is also facing portals and gravity loops, all controlled by motion sensor in the cell.
iStunt 2 offers altogether 88 levels with various unlockable snowboards and drivers as they continue in the game. We have to wait to buy it on March 28 at $2.99 on WP Marketplace.

Xbox Live game Gerbils Physics for Windows Phone hitting the Marketplace on March 14th!

Microsoft recently announced the titles of the new games for Xbox Live for Windows Phone that are due to be released in March.

Gerbil Physics is a physics puzzler. In each level, players are presented with one or more stacks of gerbils and an allotment of bombs. The goal is to use careful bomb placement in order to knock the gerbils below a yellow line. If a gerbil remains above the line when you run out of bombs, you’ll fail the level and have to try again. Some levels throw addition kinks into the mix, like structures that must not be knocked over.

The developers report that despite the game has only 72 levels,  in the future they will release new levels of play and put some music for the game to use as ringtones for our smartphone (with a free upgrade).

Gerbil Physics comes to Xbox Live on Wednesday, March 14. It will cost $2.99. Looking a bit farther into the future, the developers plan to add new levels and ringtones via free title updates.
