Relive Warcraft on the Nokia Lumia 920... or something similar anyway :)

The Nokia Lumia 920 continues to impress me on a daily basis, as I find out more about what the phone can do each day.

That's the thing about Nokia, and maybe it's to their detriment somewhat - they release awesome yet understated devices that are capable of amazing things, but they don't proclaim their devices to be "the best in the world" or make use of other similar marketing tactics a la Apple.
Good example - the Lumia 920 screen has a higher pixel density than the iPhone 5 screen, and looks easily as good (if not better), yet Apple will quickly tout their screen as being "the most advanced screen in the world", or something along those lines.

In the meantime, Nokia will carry on doing what it does so amazingly well - build brilliant devices, but minus the over-the-top in-your-face arrogant marketing.

Bit of a deviation there from the topic at hand, and indeed the title of this post, which is the awesome game "Royal Revolt!", available for free at the Windows Mobile Store.
Royal Revolt! revives fond memories of days (and nights) spent waging medieval war upon Orcs, slaying peons, mining gold, harvesting lumber, building foundries and barracks, casting Bloodlust spells... well you get where this is going (at least if you ever played Warcraft, that is).

While the gameplay is somewhat different to Warcraft (you are the Hero, around whom soldiers, archers, mages etc. fight), a lot of the game bears a striking resemblance to the original Blizzard masterpiece.
The game is a "reverse tower defense" game, meaning that you control an army who is launching an attack on an enemy castle, meeting enemy soldiers, archers and towers along the way.

The graphics are also a treat, and the hardware of the Lumia 920 ensures fluidity all the way.
Check out these screenshots to see what I mean:

The game is available for several platforms, namely Windows Phone 8, iPhone, iPad, Android and more - check out the website to download -

Get it while its free!
