This week's Windows 8 myAppFree deal is an interesting combat game where you take on the role of gladiator fighting for your life in the arena. The twist is that you are chained to a partner and have to work together to battle your way to victory.
The Windows 8 version normally runs $2.99 and there is also a Windows Phone version that typically runs $.99. Neither version has a trial and if you've been sitting on the fence about picking up Enterchained, now is your chance to save a few bucks. Over the next twenty-four hours, you can pick up Enterchained, through the myAppFree campaign, free and being a universal title when you pick up the Windows 8 version you can grab the Windows Phone version free as well.
The concept behind Enterchained is simple. You are tossed into the gladiator arena where you have to battle a wide range of foes and battle your way to victory. The hitch in this concept is that you are chained to an allied combatant, which limits your freedom of movement and actions.
While game play is mostly the same with both versions the Windows 8 version lacks touch screen support but does have support for two player co-op play in addition to the single player paired with an AI player mode. It is recommended to use game controllers for the co-op play. Otherwise, you may find the keyboard a little cramped.
The Windows Phone version lacks a co-op mode you do have on-screen controls to hack and slash your way through the gaming levels with an AI companion chained to your side.
The action is fast paced and in just tinkering with Enterchained this morning, it comes across as an entertaining action game for both Windows 8 and Windows Phone devices. It will be nice when the Windows 8 version picks up touchscreen support though.
Again, the Windows 8 version is normally priced $2.99 and the Windows Phone version $.99 with neither version having a trial. Enterchained is a universal title and over the next twenty-four hours, you can pick up both free.
