5 Free Fun Windows Store Game Apps for Windows 8

The Windows Store is beginning to offer some great games. I have been browsing these days to check out what is available in the Windows Store. I came across some pretty nice games, most of which you may already be familiar with. Here is a list of five free fun game apps for Windows 8. Hope you find them interesting.

Free Fun Game Apps for Windows 8

Pinball FX2

Pinball FX2 is an app with excellent game physics. Though it includes a single table - the Sorcerer's Lair, the sequel to Pinball FX hosts many improvements and new features. The table looks well designed and animated and has great sound effects too.

It is now available for free for Windows 8 users. Additional tables are available for download as premium content.

Fruit Ninja

The fruit-slicing game Fruit Ninja is one of the most popular game that has been redesiged for Windows 8. The game scheme as many of you might already know is fairly simple. You see a fruit being flung into the air and all you have to do is slice it up, avoiding bombs there in the mix to prevent your game from ending quickly.

The game supports touch interface well but playing with a mouse either should not dampen your game spirit in any way. There are 2 modes in the game namely,

  1. Classic
  2. Zen
  3. Arcade

You get the chance to score as high as you can and then try to beat that score in subsequent attempts. Download Fruit Ninja for Windows 8 from here.

Cut the Rope

Highly addictive! The physics-based puzzle video game is the winner of 2011 Apple Design Award and has been designed by Russian developers - ZeptoLab.

It has many levels. Each level introduces new types of objects. You have to win every level by cutting the rope and feed the candy to little baby like monster Om Nom. The candy is hung by one or several of the titular ropes which you have to cut with a swipe of a finger.

Cut the Rope has already been downloaded million times and is now available for Windows 8 too from here.

Free Flow

Another brain-teasing puzzle game with 300 different levels and 10 different board sizes. The concept of the game is really simple. You jus have to connect matching colors with pipe by dragging a line between one colored blob and the corresponding one and link them up to create a flow. These should not overlap!

The game has colorful user interface with clean vector graphics and animations and produces some funny sound effects at times. Download Free Flow from the Windows Store.

Bubble Birds

The bubble Shooter game guarantees hours of fun. While playing, all you need to do is match 3 or more birds of the same color and remove them from the field to score as many points as possible.

At each level you can shoot some 'coin' bubbles and then spend them on the level selection screen. Here, you can either buy another attempt or try and open some extra levels. The levels in green are available for you to play. I enjoy playing this game on my Windows Phone too. You can pay with your coins to open the levels in yellow. Bubble Birds in the Windows Store.
