If you're an avid reader of Pocket Gamer, you'll probably already know that Unity Technologies CEO David Helgason revealed in a recent interview that there won't be any Unity support for Windows Phone 7.

That got us thinking. What titles are the Windows Phone gamers among you missing out on?

The Pocket Gamer team has thought long and hard, played some games, Googled furiously, thought some more, and come up with a list of ten great Unity-powered time wasters.

These, then, are the top ten Unity-powered games that you won't find eating up storage on a Windows Phone device.


Madfinger's Gears of War-esque shooter is one of the most ambitious iPhone, iPad, and Android titles to date, with the game's developer aiming for a console-like look and feel.

Gameplay-wise, this action-packed title sees you take on the role of a wise-cracking bounty hunter; dart, dash, and sprint between various cover points; and eradicate waves of enemy soldiers en route to your main objective: capture a mad scientist.

Despite some issues with crashing on occasions, we gave Shadowgun a prestigious Pocket Gamer Silver Award at review, calling it "The best third-person action game available on mobiles".

The second Pocket Gamer Silver Award-winning title to make this top ten list is Mika Mobile's Battleheart, which successfully blends several elements of role-playing and real-time strategy games.

Battleheart gives you a moment to construct your very own fantasy party before thrusting you into battle against ever-improving enemies. As with most RPGs, you can unleash powerful attacks and upgrade your characters with the XP you earn from battle.

At review, we said that "Battleheart’s thrilling concoction of strategy and role-playing will prove spellbinding to any iPhone gamer looking for a quality fantasy action title."

Some truly great puzzle games have passed through the doors of Pocket Gamer Towers since Apple's Steve Jobs took to the stage and announced his company's foray into the mobile phone market. Gears is just one of them.

This Silver Award nabber charges you with rolling a ball around several excellently designed levels by tilting your device or swiping on its screen.

You'll spend most of your time trying to grab power-points and attempting to stop yourself from hurtling off the side of each landscape.

Ravensword: The Fallen King

If you're looking for a Zelda-esque role-playing game that doesn't require you to spend hours carefully updating your stats and precisely altering your skill tree, Crescent Moon Games's Ravensword: The Fallen King is probably for you.

The action-packed title tasks you with exploring a large 3D world from either a first- or third-person perspective, battling a wide range of foes, interacting with NPCs, unearthing treasures, riding horses, and much more.

We gave Ravensword: The Fallen King a respectable Bronze Award when it bolted through our headquarters all the way back in 2009.

Samurai II: Vengeance

Despite Madfinger Games's Samurai: Way of the Warrior earning a measly 6/10 at review, it's equally colourful follow-up Samurai II: Vengeance managed to bag a shiny Silver Award when it came under our scrutinous eye.

In this gleefully gory slash-'em-up, you don the armour of a vicious samurai named Daisuke, and set off on a quest of revenge across various locations, such as a seafaring village and an island of the dead.

It's not all hacking, stabbing, and slashing, though, and you'll often have to solve environmental puzzles if you wish to progress. There's even a Survival mode if you just fancy butchering some foes.

Snuggle Truck

Apple apparently doesn't like you sneaking virtual immigrants across borders and into new countries, but it's fine with your ferrying cute and cuddly toys to new homes. That's why the much-anticipated migrant-filled Smuggle Truck suddenly morphed into the harmless bear-filled Snuggle Truck.

Anyway, your mission in this physics-based title is to successfully reach the end of several bumpy roads, trails, and routes without losing the furry cargo that you're carrying on your truck's flatbed.

We awarded Snuggle Truck's driving skills an impressive Pocket Gamer Bronze Award when it came speeding through our test centre in May.

Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack!

If you imagined Sam 'Serious' Stone one day shooting up the insides of the App Store, you probably didn't foresee the type of title that would eventually mark the foul-mouthed action hero's debut on the platform.

Rather than a first-person shooter (as you might have expected), Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack! is a platformer. You don't even get to play as Sam. Instead, you take on the role of his arch-nemesis, the Headless Kamikaze, and attempt to destroy the comedic hero.

We gave Sam's debut iOS title a Bronze Award at review and called it "one of the better examples of the genre".

Save Toshi

RastaMonkey developer Nitako pleasantly surprised us with colourful 3D physics-based puzzler Save Toshi, which went on to earn a Pocket Gamer Silver Award at review. We called it a "fresh breath of anime-style gaming in the 3D physics puzzler genre".

So, what's your task? Well, you have to escort the game's protagonist, Toshi-San, to a range of groovy dance floors, by shooting the blocks that she stands on.

Naturally, you have to do this in as few attempts as you possibly can. Leaderboards give you an incentive to drive your shot count lower and your score higher.

Cordy appeared on Google's Android Market and quickly picked up a gleaming Pocket Gamer Silver Award for its efforts. It subsequently appeared on both the iPhone and iPad as a free-to-play title.

If you're unfamiliar with the game, it's a colourful 2D side-scrolling platformer that sees you take control of a small - but very fast - robot named Cordy. Luckily, he can run, jump, push, pull, swing, and perform a range of other genre favourites.

Each of the game's levels rewards you for completing three duties: completing a stage, nabbing all of its collectibles, and reaching the end in a specified time.

Shadow Era

Shadow Era is a cross-platform Magic the Gathering-esque card game that charges you with destroying your opponent. You accomplish this by using monsters, magic, skills, and more.

You can challenge the game's clever AI opponents or duke it out with your buddies over a range of devices, such as the iPhone, iPad, and Android-powered handsets. And, if you're tired of playing on a small touchscreen (what's wrong with you?), you can even play along on your computer.

There are over 150 cards to find, collect, and utilise - each with detailed art.
