In late December we decided to find some Windows 8 apps that were, for lack of a better word, weird. In February, we went back into the Windows Store and found some more odd apps. It's been a little while since we have make a trek to find Windows 8 apps that are a little left of center, but with the recent rise in the number of published Windows 8 apps lately, we decided to take another look. Not surprisingly, we found some that caught our attention.
This is a "game" where you have to stop 2D footballs from reaching the end zone by clicking or touching them. It's kind of like Missile Command, but without the fun. We honestly don't know who would enjoy this game. Even animals might think its too silly. Speaking of animals...
The Internet is full of cat pictures and videos, so why not a cat app for Windows 8? The goal is to match cat pictures to the description on a list within 15 seconds. Pretty soon you will be overloaded with cute cat pictures inside your head with this app. Enjoy.
If you want to see pictures and learn more about how how some of your ancestors killed and maimed each other hundreds of years ago, this app claims to offer just the ticket. There's even a fill-in-the blanks game that gives users a chance to identify which weapon is a Dane ax and which one is just an arming swords.
This app offers people who love cars and people who love stamps something to share together – images of cars that have been placed on stamps all over the world. By the way, Cars on Stamps sounds like a great name for a cool indie band – someone should claim that immediately (you're welcome for the tip).
The only thing amazing about this simple timer app is that it has the word "amazing" in its title. If the app were truly amazing, it would also have to tell the user how amazing their egg will be to eat when they finish cooking it with this app.
