Any must have games for windows phone 8/7x?

Just got an HTC 8X recently, and although I have pacman DX and rocket riot installed, I haven't been keeping up with game releases on the platform. Are there any recent wp games that are noteworthy (that aren't 7+ dollars preferably).

Minesweeper! Wordament! No, these aren't new, but they're all I play, and really all I need.

Search the Xbox Live games on the marketplace. There're demos for most games, so go nuts.

Check out some of the free games. Shuffle Party, Minesweeper, Flowerz and Sudoku.

Apparently Chaos Rings is amazing. I really want to get it but it's like 10 bucks and takes up 700 MB.

Wordament is really good though. I hate mobile gaming so I don't really pay much attention to it.

Contre Jour has some sick music and is a pretty great game, and I found the GeoDefense games to be ok for tower defense type of game...Z0MB1ES (on teh ph0ne) is super fun imo
