Microsoft Games Studios made live Beards & Beaks for Windows Phones. This is their first official in-house game for the platform. And so far it’s off to great reviews. Here are the details:
Gnome Town, an idyllic place of gnome mellow … suddenly overrun with murders of crows so audacious that even Hitchcock would take refuge behind a toadstool. Who knew the two could get so down and dirty in a turf war that knows no bounds? It’s a race of treasure heisting … a ballet of gnome flicking … and an all-out natural disaster of very unbecoming behavior. The powers of the Mushroom only add to the chaos … and the mystique … becoming your most reliable and “amusing” last-resort defense. If you think everything tastes like chicken and you’re fond of rubber ducks, gnomes and crows are gonna really blow your mind.
And as expected this has downloadable content available in the game. This was first revealed when the Gamesfest line-up was revealed and in-app downloads were revealed to start with Beards & Beaks although it still seems exclusive to Xbox Live titles. Anyway, it’s $3 in Marketplace with a free trial.
Max and the Magic Marker is supposed to be discounted this week as well so you can look for that.
