Epic Battle Dude is an action packed Windows Phone 8 game where you play the role of a king who has to battle a variety of monsters that have invaded your land and kidnapped your queen.
Epic Battle Dude has had decent success over on the Android and iOS platforms and we can see why. The game has bold graphics, simple but addictive game play, fifty levels of play and fantastic sound effects. It even has a unique approach to adjusting the volume in the game's settings.
Epic Battle Dude is quickly becoming our favorite new game and with it being free, dude, you've gotta give it a try.
Epic Battle Dude is laid out fairly simple. The main menu has options to jump into the game and access the settings. When you first head into game play a series of narrated story boards will run detailing how the monsters invaded your country, left you in your boxers and kidnapped your queen. While you can skip the intro, it's not very long winded.
From there you jump into game play tutorial detailing basic game play.
In a nutshell you have your vital statistics and treasure counts across the top of the screen. Your weapon choices line the left side and icons representing your enemies along the right.
To provoke the enemy and start the battle, just tap on the icon to send the monster into play. You tap your weapons icon to launch your attack and as the monsters fall, they leave a little gold to be collected. Additionally, at the end of each level a treasure chest will appear to give you a little bonus gold.
Gold can be used in between levels to upgrade your weapons and shields. There are fifty different weapons available and as you progress through the game, you can have three available. The downside is that once you buy a weapon, the old one is no longer available. Not a big deal seeing that the new one is an upgrade.
In between battles your health will regenerate naturally but health potions will become available periodically to speed up the process.
We've only tinkered with Epic Battle Dude for a short time but it has quickly become one of our favorite games. From game play to sound effects to the awesome double wide tile, Epic Battle Dude is definitely worth a try. With it being a free game, you really have no excuse.
Epic Battle Dude is available for your Windows Phone 8 device and you can find it here in the Windows Phone Store.
