Ice Rage: Hockey, a smashing Windows Phone game full of body checks

Ice Rage: Hockey is a relatively new game for Windows Phone 8 that puts you on the ice for a two-on-two hockey shoot-outl. The keeper is controlled automatically and you control the player to out-score and flatten your opponent on the ice or smash them into the glass.

While you can knock your opponent around a good bit, with Ice Rage: Hockey you do have to score a few hockey goals to win. Unlike another recent hockey game released in the Windows Phone Store, Hockey Fight.

Ice Rage: Hockey has been well received over on the Android platform and in playing the game for a short time, it should do well on the Windows Phone 8 platform.

Ice Rage: Hockey Modes

Ice Rage: Hockey has three single player gaming modes (Quick Match, Tournament and Rage-off) as well as two multiplayer modes (Quick Match and Rage-off). The multi-player mode can get a little cramped in that you are playing at the same time, from the same device. The game is full of charismatic characters to choose from that include an Enviro-Bear, Santa, a Zombie looking creature and a Lumberjack.

Graphics and animations are well done, game play comes across as challenging and overall, Ice Rage: Hockey comes across as an entertaining gaming title for Windows Phone 8. There is a trial version available with the full version running $1.99. Ice Rage: Hockey does have a few in-app purchases to unlock characters as well.

We'll take Ice Rage: Hockey out for a test drive over the next few days and in the meantime, you can check the Windows Phone game through the following Store link.
