Dark Lands for Windows Phone now available - Goblins, Orcs and Ogres beware!

If you're looking for an action packed, battle riddled, monster filled, see-how-long-you-can-survive type game for your Windows Phone, take a look at Dark Lands.

Dark Lands is one of the many products being generated from the Microsoft/Nokia sponsored AppCampus.  It is an infinite-runner styled game with RPG combat elements. We've been tinkering with the Beta version for some time now and are happy to report that the game has finally been unleashed to the Store.

The graphics are well drawn with a suitable dark, murky tone. You race your character across the countryside dodging obstacles that will leave a scar, battling a wide variety of creatures, and collect bonus items along the way. You also have a healthy selection of bosses to defeat as well.

Game controls are all gesture based to control your jumps, defensive moves, slides and attacks. You're in a constant state of running so your forward movement is taken care of. However, the developer has added a gesture to stop your character to avoid a few new dangers they've added.

You run until your health hits zero and well, your character dies.  As you progress through the game you'll earn experience and credits that can be used to upgrade your character's armor and weapons, as well as upgrade his abilities.

Dark Lands is an impressive game and an entertaining, addictive one for your Windows Phone. It's well suited to help you pass short bits of time or to keep you occupied for longer gaming sessions.

There is a free trial version available for Dark Lands with the full version running $2.99. Dark Lands is available for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices and you can find it here in (opens in new tab) the Windows Phone Store.
