Gears of War Available for WM
From the developer who brought Kratos closer to us on the HD2, we now have another PlayStation classic game. XDA member zarpy has just released a version of Gears of War for the Windows Mobile Platform. The game is basically a shooter type of game that requires plenty of eye-hand coordination and most of all, good judgement. The dev states that the game follows into the tradition of the original and hence, it will take you for a spin before you can beat it. Currently, the game is only available for devices with WVGA resolutions.
Here is a simple version of Gears of war for all WVGA devices. Like the console version the game is not easy. You have to know when to let your gun off, when to run, or when to hide behind barricades to avoid enemy fire.
Add to that a huge boss and you have a fun game on the go.
You can find more information on the game thread.
