Download link for seasons-power packed game for Windows Phone
Game play is not unlike other running games and graphics are well done. The storyline does get lost after the title scenes but is replaced by a fast paced, challenging game. You jump, slide and punch your way through obstacles to see how far you can run.
Add magic attacks, power-ups, multi-player support and the ability to fly and Seasons comes across as an attractive Windows Phone game, well worth a try.
When you first hop into the game, Seasons will walk you through a brief tutorial covering gaming controls. Your player will be constantly running and you control his avoidance maneuvers by a series of swipes; swipe up to jump, swipe down to slide and slide forward to punch.
The game screen has your distance and leaf count displayed in the upper right corner. Any magical items in your inventory will be displayed along the right side and bottom of the screen. A fly button rests in the bottom right corner of the screen.
The downside to the multi-player game is that game play doesn't give you enough time to search, host and settle into the two player game before tossing obstacles your way. It would be nice if once both players are connected, a countdown would sound and then you start game play.
Seasons is a decent infinity runner game and while graphics are nice, the game screen is zoomed in fairly close. This minimizes your reaction time to obstacles making it rather difficult to keep up with the pace of the game. This isn’t a major issue when you first start your run when the pace is more gingerly. However, the longer your run, the quicker the game pace becomes and reaction time gets tight. If you look away for just an instance you may find Ezra running head on into a boulder. I wouldn’t mind seeing the game view zoomed out just a little bit to give players a fighting chance.
Graphics are nice, game play challenging and the multi-player modes lets Seasons stand out a little from the other infinite runner games in the Store. There is a free trial version available with the full version of Seasons running $.99. You can find Seasons here in the Windows Phone Store. It’s available for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices.
Update: While the game is listed and will load on Windows Phone 7.x devices, the game does not run properly. As noted by the developer in the comments below, an update to enable the Windows Phone 7.x version of the game is in the works and should be available next week.
