This week the myAppFree deals are focusing on Halloween themed titles. We started out with Count Crunch's Candy Curse and today, the Deal of the Week is Dark Guardians.
Dark Guardians is a fantasy endless runner game that has you racing through picturesque, mystical Celtic lands. To make your run interesting, you will have to battle a host of monsters that have inhabited these lands. Some of these monsters hold elemental powers, requiring you to match your strike with powers of your own.
The graphics and animations with Dark Guardians is well drawn up, the game play is challenging and if you are going to take advantage of this week's Halloween deals from myAppFree, today is the day. Dark Guardians is normally priced at $1.49 and through the myAppFree deals, you can pick up the Windows Phone game free over the next twenty-four hours.
Dark Guardian's primary menu offers you the option to rate the game, contact the developer, visit the help screen (that would be the T button) and jump into game play. The premise of the game has your hero racing through the forest where he will encounter an endless supply of monsters to slay.
The gaming screen has four control buttons spread across the bottom of the display that will control your attacks. You attack must match the elemental power or lack of elemental power of the beast you will face. For example, if the monster is on fire that is a fire element creature and you will need to tap the fire button. If the monster has no elemental power and is just a plain Jane type creature, a simple swing of your broadsword will do the trick.
Rounding out the layout of the gaming screen is your health meter and token count that is located at the bottom center of the gaming screen. Your gaming score is displayed in the top center of the gaming screen.
Dark Guardians will test your skills at timing and observation. A light precedes your runner and when the monster reaches that area, you tap your attack button to slay the enemy. Swing too soon, too late or tap the wrong button and your hero takes on damage. Run out of health and the game is over.
At the end of each game, you will be awarded gaming tokens that in turn can be used to upgrade your skills. Upgrade options include increasing your health points, extend your sword's reach and begin the run at the 200-meter mark.
In playing Dark Guardians for a short time, it comes across as an entertaining Windows Phone game. It is a good fit for those times you have just a few minutes to pass or if your gaming itch needs a little more time to satisfy. It is a quality addition to the endless/infinite game genre from the Windows Phone Store.
Dark Guardians normally runs $1.49 and through the myAppFree deal you can pick up the Windows Phone game free (a steal of a deal). If you try Dark Guardians, let us know in the comments below what you think of things.
