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.

    Hi. You should be able to test your game on the Microsoft Windows Phone 7 emulator. See the download and instructions here at MSDN:  msdn.microsoft.com/…/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.
