Chris Bowen, a Developer Evangelist for Microsoft has compiled a list of Silverlight 1.0 & 1.1 games that are currently available, each (but one) with source:

  • "Dr. Popper" [source] - Burst the matching bubbles, the more, the better.
  • "Digger" [source] - Sort of Dig-Dug meets Montezuma's Revenge.
  • "Zero Gravity" [no source available yet] - An addictive and well-made game!  A nice example of the possibilities of the platform.
  • "Chess" [source] - Your basic chess, but shows how Silverlight 1.1 with .NET fares against a JavaScript-based AI.
  • "Sprawl" [source] - A good demonstration of potential with Silverlight 1.0.
  • "Destroy All Invaders" [source] - A cool mashup with Virtual Earth where you fly over the oblique angle view of a location of your choice while shooting UFOs.
  • "Silverlight Rocks!" [source] - A shoot the asteroids game.
