Microsoft’s neglected and bruised Windows phone platform continues its slow march to annihilation.
Internal company support for its apps and games is at an all-time low, and Microsoft seems to be doing all it can to scrub the memory of Windows on phones from our collective consciousness. Depressing, no?
Now that I set the mood, let’s reminisce about a time when Microsoft did care about Windows on phones, to the point of making exclusive games and apps, including the cartoony action city-builder hybrid Eden Falls, which we recently took a look at following its cancellation.
Microsoft has also thrown Age of Empires and Halo spinoffs at Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, in the form of Age of Empires: Castle Siege and Halo: Spartan Strike. Did you know they were also working on a Killer Instinct spinoff for phones too?
