Best Windows Phone games of 2012

Best Windows Phone games of 2012
This is our game selection with no other apps included. Go here for the best Windows Phone apps of 2012.

We’ve long been saying the Windows Phone platform isn’t mature enough, lacks the apps and many other things. And while that’s still true to a certain extent, with Windows Phone 8 and 2012 behind our backs, the situation has improved and the Marketplace looks more cheerful, packing more quality titles.

The official stats mention 125,000 apps on the Windows Phone app catalog, but in reality what matters to most is just a few apps and games.

That’s why we have selected the best games of the bunch here. And while Windows Phone still cannot brag about having the heavy hitters, games like NOVA 3, Modern Combat 4 or Asphalt 6, good news is that in 2012 Gameloft officially said it is committed to bringing them to WP in 2013.

A dirty dozen of some of the finest games will make its way to the platform next year:

  • Ice Age Village
  • N.O.V.A. 3: Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance
  • Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour
  • Shark Dash
  • Asphalt 7: Heat
  • The Dark Knight Rises
  • UNOTM & Friends
  • Order & Chaos Online
  • The Amazing Spider-Man
  • Fashion Icon
  • Poker for Prizes
  • Real Soccer 2013

But while that list sounds too good to be true right now, here is a list of games that you can download on Windows Phone right now. Take a look.
