Dark Quest for Windows Phone now available, Orcs beware
Looking for a Dungeons and Dragons styled board game for your Windows Phone? Take a look at the new Windows Phone game Dark Quest.
Dark Quest is a turn based, fantasy role playing game for your Windows Phone where you play the role of a barbarian warrior on a quest to defeat an evil sorcerer and his evil minions who have taken over your lands.
Dark Quest is presented just like a board game with plenty of transition screens to illustrate the story line and shops you visit to upgrade your character and weapons.
The game features plenty of twisted mazes to navigate through and plenty of orcs, skeletons and other monsters to battle. You can control a party of up to three characters, each with their own abilities to compliment your warriors own skills.
The developers of Dark Quest did a good job with the graphics and animations. Characters in the game are represented by tiles (instead of animated figures), just like you would see in a table top board game. It gives the game a nice "old school" feel to it.
The only downside to Dark Quest is that there is no trial version with the full version is currently running $1.99. If you're a fan of the classic D&D games, Dark Quest is worth a look. You can find Dark Quest here in the (opens in new tab) Windows Phone Store. It is available for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices.

If the developer can't even bother to let me try the game with a limited feature set, I am not going to bother to buy it. It's a rule i set myself and I am going to stick with it. I've been burned once, so no thanks.
You can even make your own quests!
I would suggest to give the chance to any developer to apply his title for the xbox branding and make the xbox certification progress more lax and more fast!
To do so differentiate the point system of wp titles with the Xbx360/one titles.For example make the xbox wp titles give you WPGS(gamer score) and be a different section (WP section) on the xbox account and not entangle with the point system and games of XBOX 360 and ONE!!!
I don't think that this is hard or complicated to been for a corporation like MS.
Please vote for my suggestion so that it maybe reaches MS http://windowsphone.uservoice.com/forums/101801-feature-suggestions/suggestions/4163745-windows-phone-xbox-live-more-something-like-gamece
Every mobile phone gamer needs this!!!
But i don't think it's completly useless.The xbox branding can promote a game.There are many people that prefer to buy xbox games only and one of the main reasons are the achievements.So i think this move could help the gaming market on WP platform!
Just take the example of XBL games on WP with broken acievements (Let's Golf 2, Brain Challenge, etc.). To fix those glitched achievements, MS and the dev (Gameloft in this case) have to repatch/rebuild/update those games and of course that's not something free (i think it's 40,000$ per update, correct me if I am wrong)
So calculate that each time a game has to be updated if there is a glitch with it.
Not every game dev. wants to be xbox branded either. Disney (Where is My series...?) have their own achievement system.
As of the "pay to update your own app" i think MS stoped this policy and you can freely update your app.As time goes by WP gains more and more market share (maybe slow but at least it's better than losing marketshare) so i think feature like this that i m suggesting will enhance WP gaming sector!
