Hasta La Muerte Game for WP7

Pohlm Studio is currently working on Hasta La Muerte (which means ‘until death’, according to a quick Bing translation). It’s a game that sees you harvesting souls of strangely shaped creatures. It sports an interesting art style with a ‘sketchy’ look. Check out the video below. The game is also part of Microsoft’s WP7 application contest here (French) so feel free to vote for it, or any other entry.

CryoDefense Game for Windows Phone 7

I had the pleasure of meeting a couple of members from the team behind CryoDefense and was treated to a live demo of the game. Cool, enthusiastic devs + cool game (even in early stages) = one to watch out for.

  • 4 exciting levels
  • 7 difficulty levels from minimal to extreme
  • Countless hours of fun for all ages

BulletAsylum Game for Windows Phone 7

UberGeekGames have just announced their latest game, BulletAsylum, which is being developed for Xbox 360 and WP7! In their words,

BulletAsylum is a new spin on the classic defend-the-city-from-meteors genre. Simply touch the screen on a WP7 device, or push the thumbstick on the Xbox 360 to create a literal fireworks show out of your enemies with an impenetrable wall of firepower. Instantly purchase new towers and cities without breaking up the action. Split your fire in two directions by touching the screen in two places or using the right thumbstick. Unleash the screen-clearing Overdrive when you’re in a tight spot.

It doesn’t just sound cool, it looks cool! Check out the video below of BulletAsylum and keep up to date on their official site and their YouTube channel. For their latest tweets, follow the developers on their Twitter account (@UberGeekGames).
