Video games have improved tremendously since the days of Pong with “knock your socks off” graphics and game play that pulls you off the couch and into the middle of things. We have seen this progress in our mobile gaming as well as with our console gaming.
We started out with a pixilated game of Snake on the old Nokia feature phones to games with stunning graphics. Games such as Asphalt 8: Airborne, Contre Jour and even Subway Surfers. While games have improved over the years, we still have a nice collection of Windows Phone games that pay tribute to the days of old with a retro or classic gaming style. These are the games that hang on to the 8bit graphics or two-dimensional game play. Games like Terraria, Crossy Road and the now unlisted Star Wars: Tiny Death Star.
For this week’s Windows Central roundup, we’ve searched the Store aisles for a few of the top rated games that have that retro feel. It is but a sampling of what is available and if we have overlooked your favorite Windows Phone game with a retro flair, feel free to sound off in the comments below.
