“Biological Strategy” Mobile Game Vein Rush Comes to Windows Phone Devices
A couple of hours ago, Polish indie mobile game developers Rafal Babiarz and Pawel Huber released their critically acclaimed tower defense game Vein Rush on Windows Phone Marketplace. Described as a “biological strategy” title for Microsoft’s mobile devices, Vein Rush takes the established tower defence formula and utilizes it in educational purposes. Specifically, its players are put in charge of human immune system and tasked with fighting various viruses and bacteria by using towers, traps, and medicine.
Given how all names of the microbes you’ll be facing are real, not to mention dozens of medical curiosities you can read about in-game, Vein Rush is an interesting blend of educational and entertaining that’s well suited for kids and those looking to reinforce their knowledge of the human immune system. This unique idea was recognized by the industry’s professionals and received accolades at the Polish edition of Microsoft’s recently held Imagine Cup. Since it’s compatible with pretty much every modern Windows Phone 7(.5) and 8 smartphone, there’s little standing in your way of getting it right now from the Windows Phone Marketplace for 99 cents.
