Best Windows 10 apps this week

Three-hundred-and-thirty-seven in a series. Welcome to this week's overview of the best apps, games and extensions released for Windows 10 on the Microsoft Store in the past seven days.

The May 2019 Update for Windows 10 is available for select configurations but it is likely that it won't change the operating system's fragmentation. Latest Adguard stats suggest that most Windows 10 devices are still on the April 2018 version of the operating system.

As always, if I've missed an app or game that has been released this week that you believe is particularly good, let me know in the comments below or notify me via email.


Discounts this week

The following list is a selection of the best deals. Make sure you check out the Store for all offers.

Some apps are discounted for more than one week. Only new apps and games are listed below. Check out the previous post in the series for past offers that may still be valid.

New Windows apps and games

Antstream Arcade

Some call Antstream Arcade the Netflix of classic gaming. Basically, what you get is a subscription-based service for licensed classic games that are streamed to supported devices.

The service is not publicly available yet, but when it is, you will have to pay £9.99 ($12.40) per month to access the available games.

You may play any of the games provided by the service including all-time classics such as California Games, Cadaver, Double Dragon, Impossible Mission 2, Mega Lo Mania, Paradroid, or The Last Ninja.

Antstream Arcade features global leaderboards, support for different input devices, and even new gameplay modes according to the service's description.


MobileShell replaces the tablet mode shell of the Windows 10 operating system partially. It is designed to recreate the Windows 10 mobile shell experience and works best on small devices.

The openSUSE Leap 15.1 Windows Subsystem for Linux distribution offers yet another option to run Linux on Windows 10.

Designed for professional developers, system administrators, entrepreneurs, and independent software vendors, it is introducing Linux capabilities such as running native Linux commands.
