    Grown tired of the usual match-three puzzle games that you have on your Lumia smartphone? Try something different with Game of Legions by Traptics – combining puzzle with combat and strategy gaming!

    Combine different types of units and launch attacks against the enemy commander through the simple, yet interesting, match-three mechanics. Upgrade your legion and become a legendary leader yourself. Unlock new units and develop intelligent tactics.

    Key Features

    • Simple and easy way of attacking
    • 20 levels and 60 challenges
    • Easy to learn, hard to master
    • Numerous upgrades for your legion and your commander
    • Facebook integration so you can brag to your friends
    • High quality sound and graphics

    Unlike match-three games like Frozen Free Fall, Game of Legions is unique since you need to defeat enemy commanders before you advance in the game.

We definitely recommend Game of Legions if you want some action combined to puzzle gaming.

The eight subsequent missions will see a fully fledged air war between Zaruzia and India and will feature all operational mission profiles as flown by the IAF and feature the SU 30, M2000, Tejas, Phalcon AWACS, C130, Mi 17, Mi 35 and ALH Dhruv aircraft.

  8. new-lock-screen-windows-phone

    Microsoft ended last week with the release of the much-anticipated Live Lock Screen app for Windows Phone! This amazing app was first teased in April during Build 2014 and had become a subject for rumors over the past weeks, with Joe Belfiore, head of the WP team, confirming its arrival only last week. Read further to find out more about this new app.

    Live Lock Screen is currently in Beta state, so don’t expect the app to be perfect just yet. The app was made by Microsoft in collaboration with popular WP developer Rudy Huyn. Here’s what’s written in the download page:

    Want to truly personalize your lock screen? Live lock screen lets you choose from 6 new lock screen layouts to add a distinctive touch to your Windows Phone. Each layout has a revamped design for the time, date, and notifications, as well as a unique unlock animation. You can also cycle through multiple background images throughout the day to keep your lock screen fresh—or just get the latest incredible image from Bing every morning.

    I’ve tried the app this morning, and was really impressed on how futuristic the Lock Screens are. There are problems, though, that still needs to be addressed. I expected the initial version to be like this – after all, it’s still in Beta. You may experience lags with the smartphone performance after enabling the app, which, by the way, requires users to turn off active Kid’s Corner first for Live Lock Screen. Also, the app may not work sometimes, bringing you back to the old Lock Screen. And I was disappointed that the Stripe mode, which allows the Lock Screen to disappear by dividing into stripes, was not present in this version. We’re not complaining though, and since Rudy promised to fix the app soon, I’ll be waiting for the updates.

    Give Live Lock Screen Beta a try and see for yourself! Grab the app now by scanning the QR code below or by downloading it straight from the Windows Phone Store. It works with devices with 512MB RAM, but will require WP 8.1 before you can download.
