New Channel 9 Video: Richard Costall on Silverlight Manic Miner for Windows Phone 7

Pete Brown - 05 April 2010


One of the more interesting uses for Silverlight is casual gaming. When you add Windows Phone 7 Series into the mix, it becomes even more exciting.

At MIX10, I met up with Microsoft MVP and all around cool guy, Richard Costall. He showed me how, with no real changes, he was able to get his Silverlight game Manic Miner to run on the Windows Phone 7 Series. In fact, he did the port that day, using bits he just received at the conference. He plans to take this further and optimize the experience for the Windows Phone. I can't wait to see the results.
