Dragons Adventure arrives to the Windows Store, but is exclusive for the Nokia Lumia 2520
Dragons Adventure is intended mainly for kids and the concept behind it is simple, yet clever – the tablet uses data from the HERE Maps platform and transfroms and reshapes the game world according to the actual route you take every day, the buildings and notable landmarks you pass by, etc. This way, long trips to school become part of the gameplay. Furthermore, to enhance the gaming experience, in-game weather is also changed in order to correspond with the actual weather at your location.
Parents can take part in the developing story behind Dragons Adventure as well. A companion app for Lumia smartphones allows them to be 'quest masters', who set up routes, challenges and create missions for players. The game comes preinstalled on the Lumia 2520 and it is yet unclear if it will be available for other Windows RT 8.1 tablets as well.

The aquisition of nokia by m$ is the worst thing to ever happen to wp (or even rt) because nokia has done so much more to the OS than m$ (in case of RT its already bringing awesome apps). I can't imagine how good loking and functional WP would be if m$ allows hardware companys customise WP.

My son would love this as he's a big How to Train Your Dragon fan. I hope they make an Android version.

Exclusivity is about the worst thing developer can do with an app. Exclusive for 2520? So just about no one right?
