Seasons - a multi-player, infinity runner game for Windows Phone

25

Seasons is a relatively new infinite runner game for our Windows Phones.  You play the role of Ezra, a warrior who is in the middle of a heated battle with his brother Aton.  You have to help Ezra race across the land, navigating him past various obstacles along the way.

Game play is not unlike other running games and graphics are well done.  The storyline does get lost after the title scenes but is replaced by a fast paced, challenging game.  You jump, slide and punch your way through obstacles to see how far you can run. 

Add magic attacks, power-ups, multi-player support and the ability to fly and Seasons comes across as an attractive Windows Phone game, well worth a try.
