Joel Evans at ZDNet writes in his recent post that “InformationWeek is reporting that Microsoft has hired Touch Dimensions to build at least twenty casual entertainment games. According to the developers, the games will range form a Whack-a-Mole clone to a digital sketch pad, and will feature extensive use of the touch screen.”

While it is unknown how many Windows Phone 7 games may be shipped eventually when the new Microsoft mobile product line is launched later this year, it is certain that Microsoft is working hard to improve the gaming experience on the mobile device. During the keynote presentation at TechEd Middle East in Dubai in March 2010, Microsoft's Eric Rudder played the same Indiana Jones game on a Windows computer, an Xbox 360, and a Windows Phone 7 phone.
