If you are a Windows Phone games enthusiast, you should be feeling good right despite the fact that it’s a cold, dull Monday morning with grey skies to greet you when you head out to work. (at least that’s what I woke up today to). I own a Windows Phone 8.1, so glum weather or not, I know there are some fun games I can check out in between my work breaks and that’s a cheerful thought. With that said, here are at least five, relatively new Windows Phone games to check out and they are available for less than $2 in total.
