We're suckers for games around these parts, and smart phone games are no exception. Many of the compelling games for Windows Phone are Xbox Live titles, but certainly not all of them. One game which is a perfect example of what independent developers are capable of is ARMED.
ARMED is a turn-based strategy game for Windows Phone. Unlike many indie games for Windows Phone ARMED features impressive 3D graphics which wouldn't be out of place in an Xbox Live game. New players can learn the basics of the game through the tutorial, which walks you through all of the basics of creating buildings and units. Multiplayer gaming is another feature of ARMED which allows you to compete against other players using the same device or across the internet. ARMED allows you to create a game against an opponent with a similar ranking or a custom game against a previous opponent. Your ranking can be compared to others using the online leader board.
ARMED is available from the Windows Phone Marketplace. The game costs $3.99, but there is a free trial available for those who are a little hesitant to put out their hard earned cash.
