Searching for addictive games is super-easy on the Windows Phone Store: Just tap the Store icon on your Lumia and you’re off and running.

However, to make it even easier, we’ve listed 10 of the top paid-for games available in the Windows Phone Store right now. All you need to do is read, click and download.

Plants Vs. Zombies £1.99 / $2.99 / 2,99 €


Who would’ve thought that the best defense in a zombie apocalypse would be to make use of some killer, zombie-terminating plants? Well, that’s the scenario in Plants Vs. Zombies.

Thankfully, your lawn is large enough to fill with these weapon-wielding weeds. All you have to do is to plant them quickly enough to stop the encroaching waves of the undead.

Cut The Rope Exp. £0.79 / $0.99 / 0,99 €


Don’t forget to feed Om Nom: the mad professor’s little bug-eyed experiment.

There’s only one thing he likes to eat and that’s candy. But forget simply dropping it into his cage; make him work for his treats.

Use ropes to swing him around the screen, bubbles to make him float, and rockets to launch him to success.

Sonic CD £3.49 / $4.99 / 4,99 €


Let’s take you back to 1993 with the blue spiky hero named Sonic the Hedgehog.

Amy Rose has been kidnapped, but by whom? Doctor Eggman’s most evil creation: Metal Sonic.

Spin your way through time, collecting gold rings as you go, to save Amy – and the world!

Mirror’s Edge £1.99 / $2.99 / 2,99 €


Running’s hard. It’s even harder when running across rooftops with armed forces on your tail.

Playing as Faith Connors, your aim is to take out the bad guys while riding zip lines, running up walls, or dropkicking people in the face. Whatever works!

Gravity Guy £1.99 / $2.99 / 2,99 €


Run, Gravity Guy, run! If only it were that simple.

While most endless-running games have obstacles to stop you advancing– and this game does have that–Gravity Guy’s special ability is to flip gravity on or off.

That means that the ceiling can become the floor and the floor can become the ceiling at will.

Jet Car Stunts WP £1.99 / $2.99 / 2,99 €


Not content with just driving around a racetrack? Try Jet Car Stunts.

Jump, fly, skid, launch, spin, spiral, and do whatever else it takes to reach the finish line in style.

Survivalcraft £3.49 / $4.99 / 4,99 €


What to do when you’re marooned on the shores of an infinite blocky world? Survive, or course.

To do that, gather resources from the land, make traps, and grow plants. You’ll also need to survive bitterly cold or scorching hot temperatures in various environments.

Watch out for the werewolves!

Parking Mania £1.99 / $2.99 / 2,99 €


Put your spatial awareness to the test to see if you can park your car.

Sure, it sounds easy, but with one thumb on the accelerator pedal, both hands tilting the phone to steer while avoiding all the other parked cars or curb, it’s quite challenging.

Minecraft: Pocket Edition £4.49 / $6.99 / 6,99 €


Developed by Mojang, Minecraft: Pocket Edition is all about, as the name suggests, mining and crafting.

The infinite worlds open up endless possibilities to create the most basic or complex of structures.

What you create is up to you, but you could build a small hut for one or an entire kingdom filled with friendly villagers. You could also recreate Times Square.

Real Racing 2 £1.99 / $2.99 / 2,99 €


If you like fast cars speeding around a track, you’ll love Real Racing 2.

With 30 officially licensed cars, including the 2010 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500, 2012 McLaren MP4-12C, or Nissan GT-R (R35), you’re sure to win.

Or are you? You’ll need to battle it out with other AI drivers or other players over Wi-Fi to find out.
