Project: Simple Game Creation for Windows Phone 7

Looking for a way to get into mobile development? Build a game with a little help from this open source project on CodePlex.

The project lets you create new art & audio and edit some XML files to bring it all together into a polished game without having to write all of the code required to make the game work.

Head to and follow the instructions there to get started.

    Hi. You should be able to test your game on the Microsoft Windows Phone 7 emulator. See the download and instructions here at MSDN:…/ff402563(v=VS.92).aspx

    We created some quiz apps for the Windows Phone 7 last fall and I used the emulator. It worked great for me. I didn't have a phone yet, either.
