Microsoft releases three classic Windows time-wasters for Windows Phone 8

New, 10 comments

Microsoft released three games for its Windows Phone 8 platform today, each a classic, productivity-killing title familiar to longtime Windows PC users. Now available to download for free from the Windows Phone store are new versions of Microsoft Minesweeper, Microsoft Mahjong and the Microsoft Solitaire Collection.

Microsoft Solitaire Collection includes a variety of modes, including Klondike, Spider and FreeCell.

All three titles are Xbox Live compatible and feature achievements, leaderboards and, if you're having a particularly good game of Minesweeper, boast "Play, Pause, Resume" support for continuing a Windows Phone game on another compatible platform, like Windows 8.
