The Quest, Staking Claims and a new title, Array have all hit the Windows Phone 8 store. The Quest and Staking Claims are also now available for Windows 8.
If you’re not familiar with the games – and they are an eclectic bunch – here’s a quick summary…
The Quest is a Rubik’s cube-like puzzle game in which players must manipulate the cubic corners of their curious world to help Sir Steve, the knight, retrieve his favourite mug. It’s a little like King Arthur’s grail quest, only with balloons and boats and an incredibly satisfying game mechanic.
Staking Claims is a rootin’ tootin’ western gold rush-themed recreation of the kids game ‘squares’. Draw lines, complete boxes. The player who completes a box claims it and gets another move. The player with the most squares – and gold – wins.
Array is a new title. In each level, the player must match an arrangement of numbered tiles on a grid. However, placing a tile adjacent to another will increase the number shown on the original tile… Like all the best puzzle titles, it sounds simple. In practice however, your brain will start complaining after several levels, with sobbing and nosebleeds setting in shortly thereafter.
