We first caught wind that Ubisoft was planning on releasing a Windows Phone 8 specific version of Babel Rising 3D back during Casual Connect 2013. But the word on the street was that it wouldn't be Xbox enabled due to the lengthy certification process.
While we aren't sure what happened between then and now, Babel Rising 3D was released today and as an Xbox Windows Phone gaming title.
For those not familiar with Babel Rising 3D you play the role of a vengeful god with the task of preventing your worshippers from building the Tower of Babel. You use lightning bolts, earthquakes, floods and other nasty tools of your wrath to prevent the tower from being built.
Babel Rising 3D has fifteen missions in the single player campaign along with a survival mode that will test your godly stamina. Graphics look impressive and it will be interesting to see how the latest Xbox title shakes out. We'll get our Xbox Gaming Master Paul set up with Babel Rising 3D and get a full review on the site shortly.
The only obvious downside to Babel Rising 3D is that it lacks a trial version. The full version is currently running $2.99 and you can pick up Babel Rising for your Windows Phone 8 device here in the Windows Phone Store.
