World at Arms, Gameloft's free-to-play modern-war strategy, now out for Windows Phone
One of Gameloft's quite popular games, World at Arms, has been finally released for devices that run Microsoft's mobile OS. If you have ever played the Command&Conquer: Red Alert game series, then World at Arms would most likely feel quite similar – it's a strategy game that depicts a modern war conflict between fictional nations.

The singleplayer aspect of the game requires players to defend their nation from the "evil KRA forces" that wage war on the entire free world. The gameplay of World at Arms sticks to the basics of the strategy genre – apart from battling the enemy's units, gamers have to build their own base, collect resources, train new troops, and manage their economy. The graphics, as well as the overall gameplay of World at Arms, are quite similar to the aforementioned C&C: Red Alert, and both will be most probably fancied by the mobile gamers, who like strategy games with a little more depth.

The game is touted as the only modern-war mobile game that allows players to explore and battle their enemies in the deep sea. Apart from naval warfare, gamers have to fight the KRA forces on various maps across the world, each with different environment and graphical style.

World at Arms comes with multiplayer on board, as well – players can either team up and create factions or challenge and battle each other. The most agile gamers can also find themselves on top of the global leaderboards, too.

Gameloft's strategy is a free-to-play title, which comes with the typical for the developer expensive in-app purchases. The recent addition to the Windows Phone store is also available for Android and iOS devices.

Free to start - Expensive to make it past the midpoint of the game.

I am playing daily on Castle Age for iOS and it's p-a-i-n-f-u-l-l-y slow to upgrade your character without in-app purchases. I broke down and will only make purchases during promos and that I can get the iTune card at a discount. Right now, iTune cards are 10% off and with red card gets me to 14.5% off list price.

World at Arms: Why have the game makers allowed the destruction of their game? They still sell Gold Stars online for it.... Gold stars that you absolutely cannot keep cuz pop-ups just inadvertently rob them from you. How hard would it be to make it so you had to click on a few things to open up your gold star cache??? I've lost hundreds. You can't save them...SUCKS!!!! The game isn't worth playing now either way when 75% of the gamers on there are CHEATS using that cheater patch/hack or whatever it is. What about the REAL gamers that put in loads of time and even money to the game? It's all gone now! There's beginners with top level boss units, players with absolutely NO INCOME buildings on their bases etc. World at Arms Creators- DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!?!
