Popular 'empire building' game The Tribez lands on Windows Phone

Game Insight makes some outstanding mobile games including the addictive Cloud Raiders, 2020: My Country and Airport City. Today, their other empire-building game The Tribez is finally available for Windows Phone users.

The Tribez has been on iOS and Android for a few years (since 2012) already garnering some very high reviews. The game weighs in at 153 MB and yes even those with 512 MB devices can get in on the action. So far, the graphics of The Tribez look outstanding and the sheer size of the game's world seems highly impressive.

From the app description:

"Tribez is not just a game! Tribez is an adventure, where you travel to a distant past full of secrets, mysteries and many hours of addictive discovery of an unknown, but beautiful world! You are invited to visit a primitive world inhabited by a peace-loving people, who have been hidden behind a miles-deep portal from time immemorial. Build your own stone-age village, explore territories hidden by mountains and seas, and lead your tribe, who considers you sent by the gods, to prosperity."

Naturally, The Tribez carries on in the tradition of other empire-building games like Star Wars: Commander and Age of Empires: Castle Siege complete with online social-gaming options. However, the time-period for this game goes back much further, bringing with it some new twists.

No word if there will be a port for Windows 8.1, but Game Insight has a history of doing just that so we will keep an eye out for that release as well. For now, we are going to fire up this game and take it for a spin, and we think you should too.

Peep the embedded trailer to see the game's story and some gameplay.
