All the Windows Phone games that show a description that read, "Please Note: This game is intentionally difficult" have a tendency to attract attention. Same is the case with the latest Windows Phone game Lushington Springs.
Lushington Springs is a tower defence game in which you need to defend the territory from hostile attacks and the terrain may range from forests to snowy passes to deserts to urban areas. Being a strategic defence game, it throws even the most unexpected things at you.
The genre lets us know just how much we enjoy being on the winning side of a strategic game. Of course, the enjoyment we feel comes from configuring an efficient machine to stop these attackers – in the best tower defense games, the sense that you have come up with an ideal, elegant solution to an issue is an extremely satisfying experience.
This game has 20th century weaponry and is certainly not going to massage your eyes in quite the same way as the other games do. This is an unusual tower defense game in which it’s given a real-world feel. This game has been fairly developed with some lovely high-resolution backdrops, and nice little effects throughout.
If you like tower defense games, Lushington Springs will be right up your passage. There is also a free trial version available to let you try before you buy. The full version will cost you $1.99 and both the versions can be downloaded in your Windows Phone-based mobile from the Zune marketplace.
