OrcKid is a Windows Phone-exclusive game in which you slaughter poodles as an orc


Developer: Me,We StudiousDownload: Windows Phone
Genre: GamesPrice: $0.99 (limited time sale)

Harr! It's not everyday we get to write about a Windows Phone-exclusive game, but since this one is about gratuitous poodle slaughter, we felt it deserved the attention. Of course, there's more to OrcKid than canine-oriented arena violence. Check out how the awesome PlayStation era art style in which the characters are created is juxtaposed against beautiful dynamic backdrops. It looks like a lot of work went into the design and animation, and it paid off, because slicing and dicing vicious bipedal poodles has never looked this good before.

Developer Me, We Studios wanted OrcKid to twirl, spin, and deal death to its brethren's enemies, so it didn't spare animation efforts. It also implemented a straightforward, yet sophisticated combat system that employs touch and gesture controls to get you hacking through hordes of angry enemies, feeling like an absolute boss. There are plenty of combos and upgrades to be unlocked, the latter dealing with swords, skins, and random decorations for your little green character.

The game is available for Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 devices, and it costs just $0.99, with the first six levels being free to try, and no in-app purchases in sight. The trial stages will put you in day, sunset, and night settings, the second type looking especially romantic as OrcKid disposes of the poodle menace with his swift, lethal sword attacks. Don't be fooled by the cartoonish visuals - blood pours in this game like you're at a vampire rave party!
