Microsoft has had a few problems with the developers; Rovio Mobile; when they had jumped the gun during the WP7 launch and said that Angry Birds would be coming to their devices. Rovio had categorically denied those rumors and even asked Microsoft to refrain from using them as promotions.
However, few months down the line and Microsoft has officially announced that Angry Birds would be coming to Windows Phone 7 devices. In addition to Angry Birds a few other popular games will also be made available for WP7 devices, they include:
- Doodle Jump
- Plants vs Zombies
- Hydro Thunder Go
- Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I
The new games will start arriving in the Windows Phone marketplace starting April 6, 2011 and will include support for Xbox Live allowing users to post high scores and track leaderboards.
These games will definitely add some spice to the Windows Phone marketplace, but Microsoft definitely needs lot more apps in there before it can even be considered on par with the Android market and Apple App Store.
