Kinectimals, Toy Soldiers for WP7

Microsoft details its smartphone slate.

A mobile version of Xbox 360 pet sim Kinectimals headlines Microsoft's impending slate of Windows Phone 7 releases.

Microsoft's Gamescom announcement didn't offer any gameplay details but promised the title will be out in the Autumn.

Also coming to its smartphone OS is a miniature spin-off of XBLA strategy favourite Toy Soldiers. Subtitled Boot Camp, it packs in its bigger brother's shooting gallery mini-games with cross-platform leaderboards.

On top of that, there's casual RTS Beards & Beaks: Cave Area, god game Bug Village, puzzler TextTwist 2, iOS staple Burn The Rope, Farm Frenzy 2 and something called Chickens Can't Fly.

As well as the games, there are a few system refinements incoming too, including microtransaction support, Avatar Awardables, parental controls and improved multiplayer via Fast Async play.
