Ported Windows Phone 7 to Windows 8 game demoed

Windows 8 Game AlphaDrops

Rick Walrond, the creator of Alphadrops, a popular word game on Windows Phone 7, has demoed a ported version of his Windows Phone 7 game on a Windows 8 tablet.

At the moment we do not know if Windows Phone 7 apps will be able to run without modification on Windows 8 tablets, but Rick demonstrates in the video above that it will not take too much effort to port Windows Phone 7 games to the new Marketplace, and with potentially a much larger market I am sure most WP7 Marketplace developers will be looking to do the same if it makes sense.
