Well, if you feel going through the market finding the best game is overwhelming, we already have you covered. The following is a list of our favorite top 6 windows game that you should not miss. The list is subjective of course. Enjoy!
Halo: Spartan Strike
This is the spartan assault game, set between Halo 3 and 4. The aim of what most people might mistake for a light weight mini-game (which believe you me is not) is to play through the twenty-five missions of warfare against the vengeful Covenant zealots and the mysterious Prometheans. Each mission has new challenges such as weaponry and Promethean enemies. All this is bound to get you hooked for hours.
The only downside is that the game requires in-app purchase if you wish to upgrade your gear. Ideally, it does not have a trial mode, so you will have to get it for $6.99 right f the bat. However, it is certainly worth the money.
Doom And Destiny
Doom and destiny are traditional top-down dungeon-style RPG game that was previously released on Xbox and Windows phone. The game requires you to hold your Windows 8 as a tablet, but you can also play it with your computer keyboard or your controller. Even though the game is a slow starter, it was a well-written script and a pretty good storyline. It goes for $2.99, but there is a trial version, so you have nothing to lose here.
With a great selection of achievements to unlock for your Gamer score, this game perhaps the most involved Windows game in the market. The only disadvantage is that you will have to wait for a combat to be generated and you have no influence over the ships that are deployed. This particular feature makes the game seem more of a simulation than a strategy game even with its complexity. However, you certainly will not notice time passing as the impressive cinematic visuals and your attempt to control the galaxy will get you hooked. The game goes for $4.99, but you can try the free version if you are skeptical about it.
If you are searching for great 3D graphics, then you might want to pass on this one. However, if you are looking for great games that are absolutely amusing, then you might just like this one. Pew pew looks like it was hand drawn and the sound effects are not that great. However, this is a free title that surprisingly gets fun once you start to play.
Armed is a futuristic time strategy game where the player aims to secure resources and beat the enemy faction. It is a well-polished game and has really nice graphics. Combat units are in various types for aerial and ground assault. There are also various upgrades that can be bought for customization purposes. The game is free to download, but you have the option of removing ads by paying $2.99.
This one is a free, to begin with, Xbox live game that has great imagination and depth. This title has stunning graphics and unique puzzles all available in various episodes. 5 episodes complete a season and the first episode is free to play. The rest of the episodes go for about $25. If you are into puzzles, then this one should be on your list.
