The Nokia Lumia 610 is a stylish and highly affordable Windows Phone that comes with a 3.7-inch touchscreen, making it ideal for gaming on the go. Here you can check out our top 10 Nokia Lumia 610 free games for Windows Phone.
The Nokia Lumia 610 is an entry-level smartphone with 256MB of RAM on-board, as opposed to the 512MB of RAM Windows Phone for originally designed for. What this means in the real world is that not all games will run on the device. Don’t be alarmed, as some sites would like you to be, we’ve found that roughly one game in 10 won’t currently run.
However, that means there are thousands of games – both Xbox Live and standard – that will play! We’ve pulled together our top 10 free games for Windows Phone that we’ve play tested on the Nokia Lumia 610 so we know they run with ease!
Dalton – THE AWESOME!
Dalton is a recent arrival on Windows Phone but we remember it fondly as it used to be a staple game on Symbian. This is a running game, where you need to dodge the hoards of undead. You can do this on foot or with power-ups, such as the gun, the skateboard and the ‘GROW ME!’ icons you find along your way. Try and beat you last best score and make it onto the leader-board, it’s harder than you think!
Another new addition to the Marketplace that plays really well on your Nokia Lumia 610. This game tells the story of Ivan, whose dream is to become a first-class pilot but there are obstacles on his way, such as rings, balloons with hot air, tops of the buildings, billboards that make this a challenging and fun game. You’ll need fast reflexes to get the best for Crazy Ivan but it’s fun and rather addictive.
OK, this is an oldie but a goodie but if truth be known, this was the first game we downloaded and installed on our Nokia Lumia 610. It’s a simple premise, match three flowers of the same colour and they disappear. Sounds easy but with an ever changing game board it’s a lot trickier than you’d imagine!
Brand spanking new, Gun Bros has hit Xbox Live like someone being thwacked over the back of the head with the butt of an AK47, all business! Play a genetically enhanced super-warrior out to defeat aliens at every turn. This roleplaying game offers plenty of action and even more rewards for the brave at heart!
Unblock Car Free
The goal of this game is to solve the traffic jam in the car parking by moving the red car out of the chaos. Sure, it’s basically a puzzle game whereby you move the cars to get out of gridlock but you’ll be surprised how tricky it can be – even the easy level aren’t all that easy!
Another type of classic game is bubble shooting, only this time you’re asked to do it in space. The aim is to remove all the bubbles from the board as quickly and in as few a moves as possible. It’s a great game with a few novel twists to the ageing theme it’s based on.
We missed this one when is was released back in June but we’ve been making up for it ever since as Brutal Chase lives precisely up to its name. This adrenaline based game needs you to be in brutal mode if you’re to succeed. Crush the competing cars to get ahead of the pack, earn money and upgrade your mean machine!
Wordament is a unique kind of word game – a word tournament – where you are competing with the whole internet to be the best word searcher in every game. Every player is competing on the same board, in real-time, to get the highest score. This is a great addition to the Xbox Live line of games and the fact it’s also free makes it a winner in our Nokia Lumia 610 budget bustin’ roundup!
Shuffle Party is another Xbox Live game that’s free to download. The only time we’ve seen this played seems to be in the movies on a ship’s deck, so it’s a pity all the themes seem to be indoors! Still, earn cash for your high scores to spend on custom pucks, pins, and game tables.
Bomberman vs. Zombies
Take the classic Bomberman game and add a huge hunk of brain-obsessed zombies and you have a nice spin on a couple of old themes. The graphics are big, bright and have a nicely cartoonish feel to them.
