If you don’t like First-person shooters, racing games or If you’re just a bit nostalgic, this might be great news for you. Microsoft has decided to release some of their most known classic games ever for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8.

Most of us have sometime played the classic PC games Solitaire, Minesweeper and Mahjong. Even if you haven’t played those games in many years, if you own a Windows Phone or if you’re using Windows 8, you will have a chance on playing them all once again.
Microsoft announced on their blog that the classic games have been “redesigned for a new generation of players and devices.”
In the updated versions of the games, you are now able to earn achievements, much like the ones available for console gamers. Making it easy to compete with your friends.
