Screen Shot 2013-01-27 at 10.56.15 AM

Microsoft Windows Phone 8 offers native code support that enables development and porting of high-performance games. This lab provides an overview of Windows Phone 8 capabilities that support complex games development. It introduces the tools and frameworks that increase your productivity and demonstrates a hands-on approach to games development with the Windows Phone SDK 8. By leveraging frameworks such as the Microsoft Direct3D API and support for popular physics and rendering engines, you can now create games with native performance as well as use your own or third-party engines and middleware for games development for Windows Phone 8 users.

It is recommended that you install the Microsoft Windows Phone SDK 8.0 to get the most out of this training lab. Also, it will be helpful to have a Nokia Lumia phone built on Windows Phone 8 available for testing.
