Hydro Thunder Go – May 25, $4.99
We’ve heard rumors about Microsoft’s “6 Weeks Of Must-Have Games” promotion, but we never got a solid date. There were rumors that Angry Birds would be released for Windows Phone 7 on May 25th. While Angry Birds is a part of the lineup, its not the first game, its actually the last. The good news? The promotion begins next week, on May 25th (just before the Trophy launches on Verizon).
The first game is Hydro Thunder Go, which is a Windows Phone-only exclusive (not a port like most other games).
