Gameloft's Rival Knights jousts its way straight to the Windows Phone Store

Short of a month ago, Gameloft released a rather unusual game – Rival Knights, a jousting simulator, set in the Middle Ages. This freemium game paired the romantic aspects of the Medieval hastiludes with some truly beautiful 3D graphics. The curious game has been jousting on Android and iOS for some time, but Windows Phone has just earned its way into the tournament, as Gameloft's title has just galloped to Microsoft's mobile platform.

Apart from the shiny looks, the jousting simulator also packs some beautiful motion-capture animations and ragdoll physics, which surely add up to the overall gaming experience. Speaking of gameplay, it's nothing to write home about, because it tends to get rather repetitive fairly quickly. Still, the asynchronous multiplayer somewhat makes it up for the slightly monotonous and tedious gameplay – you can challenge any other player and try to take them down from their armored horse by delivering a winning blow with your knightly lance. Additionally, Rival Knights tries to allure gamers to spend a little more time with it by providing numerous customization options for your knight and horse alike.

If being a knight has been among your most-coveted childhood dreams and you happen to own one of them Windows Phone-powered devices, then you should definitely go ahead and snatch Rival Knights for free from the Windows Phone Store – although its gameplay isn't as diverse as we'd like it to be, Gameloft's knight-centric game will surely appeal to those, who keep jousting very close to their hearts.

With the 1520 having pretty much the best gaming graphics available on a modern high end smartphone this game looks, and plays, awesome!... I'm just not fond of all the in app purchases... ............... I don't play games much, but this one is really cool.

What is wrong with WP fan? You guy can't start and finish a statement without sounding like a wp sales rep. Doing your troll baiting routine and when the trolls do come you, cry and scream!!! Cursing the very poor trolls that you wished for in the first place.

Dude, your logic seems familiar. It's like a rapist blaming the victim for "inviting" him by wearing a short dress. I know rodneyej1 is a WP fan but his comment looks pretty clean. I really don't think he intended to troll-bait or whatever. Also, hypothetically, in which case he WAS INDEED troll-baiting, why do you fall for it? Are Android fans that gullible?

I disagree with her remark therefore I reply her. That's what I meant that she is baiting for a response. Your logic about rape is illogical because the forum response is only words not actions. Each is entitled their own opinion and their perspective. Have a great day!
