Microsoft Game Studios has a pretty good reputation for churning out solid titles on the Xbox 360 game console and now we’ll finally see their hand at making games for the mobile platform with the in-house game Beards & Beaks. The title originally debuted as an upcoming Windows Phone Xbox LIVE-enabled title after the Xbox keynote at this years E3 event. The title is already receiving great reviews from users and features a platform first with in-game add-ons. Here’s the Marketplace description:
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.
The title is now available to download in the Marketplace for $2.99. Search for “Beards & Beaks” in the Zune PC software or on your Windows Phone to check out the new title.
