For the third day in succession now, a major title has seen an official launch on Windows Phone, and in this case, Windows 8.1. Smash hit mobile game, Crossy Road, has made its debut on both platforms and is available to download right now from both stores.
This follows the launch of Pocket Casts and Monument Valley, rounding out a great week for Windows fans.
"Why did the Chicken cross the road?
Why did the Pigeon leave THAT there?
Why did Specimen 115 abduct that cow?
Why did Unihorse eat all that candy?"
Crossy Road is a really simple to pick up game that sees you as a chicken, well, crossing the road. For anyone who ever played Frogger back in the day, this is pretty much along the same lines. You just keep on going, one tap at a time, crossing roads, rivers, train tracks, collecting things as you go.
It's free to download and play and has seen monumental success on iOS and Android. It's a fine way to round out what's been a crazy good week for Windows and Windows Phone, so grab it now at the store links below.
