Blockdot Launches First Game for Windows Phone 7
Dallas-based Blockdot has launched its first-ever Windows Phone 7 game: Metallurgy. It’s available as a free download.
The Windows Phone ecosystem has grown steadily since Windows Phone 7 first launched in October 2010, with more than 17,000 apps currently available on Windows Phone Marketplace and Windows Phone handsets available from a range of partners worldwide
Dan Ferguson, Vice President of Creative Services and Co-Founder of Blockdot, says “our agency has been working with Microsoft for years, and we immediately seized the opportunity to create exciting and engaging content – original IP, no less – on Microsoft’s new Windows 7 platform.”
In Metallurgy, you must keep the scrap metal balls from falling into the molten lava pit. To do this, navigate a paddle – with your finger – to the left and right, continuously bouncing balls of the paddle. The more you play, the more balls will gradually appear. Miss too many balls and the game ends!
After you play, your scores are saved to a global scoring system on www.kewlbox.com — letting you compete for bragging rights with friends and other competitors.
You need the Microsoft Zune software to install the game:
