Descent for Windows Phone 7 - one trippy racing game [Video]

Do you like racing? Do you like racing through endless tunnels while rotating around at high speeds, losing all sense of up or down, while inducing nausea?

Then "Descent" by RH Computing is for you.

Just released to the Marketplace and fetching for $0.99 (+ trial), the game is a load of fun and will test your skills as you try to dodge obstacles, gain energy orbs and ramp up your speed. Make no mistake, not only is it a blast but it will take time to get good at it. Plus the graphics are nice and smooth as you can see from the video above. Hey, for a buck, we can think of worse things to spend your money one, so maybe give this a shot.

Grab the demo here in the Marketplace. Hit us up in comments for your thoughts on the game.

  • Currently downloading. I paid before I tried because that video convinced me. It says it utilizes your media folders. Does that mean it makes tunnels according to the beats in your music like that game on ZuneHD? If so - awesome I wish it was an XBLive title so that I can at least go for achievements.
  • I guess it's a good strategy to avoid getting blue balls then... :-}

  • Fantastic find... very good game!
  • I think I saw a video of this on YouTube before the dev was calling it Descent. Anyway, looks like a great game and I'll probably just buy it if it's 99 cents.
  • There was a PC game that this looks like a rip of, even down to the name: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Descent_%28video_game%29
  • This one looks even better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUz7BedykbE
