Microsoft has commissioned Singaporean Touch Dimensions to create 20 casual Windows Mobile games. The games range from a digital sketchpad to a Whack-A-Mole-type game that lets you smack mosquitoes to oblivion.

One of them, Autumn Dynasty (in the video above), a war-based strategy game where you draw the attack paths for your armies with brush strokes, won the best student game award at last year’s Game Developers Conference in Shanghai, and was also one of the Microsoft Code 7 contest winners at last year’s Professional Developers Conference in Los Angeles. The game has already garnered 48,000 downloads.

Touch Dimensions develops games centred around "natural user interfaces".

"We’re looking at things that are more natural to play with, such as touchscreens and sensors that let you turn and rotate the device," Touch Dimension’s Ho told TodayOnline. "This allows people to play with games in more intuitive ways."

The games will be available for free on Marketplace.
