Shocking Introduction: A First Look at the FREE XBLA Game Happy Wars
Strange things are a brewing in the world of Microsoft, as Friday marked the launch of a free Xbox Live Arcade game called Happy Wars developed by their own Microsoft Studios. That’s right, I said free. Complete with full on multiplayer, Happy Wars is a very cartoony take on hack and slash with a bit of tower defense for good measure. I decided that, since it is free, I might as well give the game a go, and I have to say that I was pretty surprised at the fun factor at hand. The game is by no means revolutionary, but I’ll be damned if I didn’t have a good time. I don’t know if it is something I’ll play a lot of, but I am definitely glad I didn’t write it off completely. If you are not interested in wasting the bandwith required to download the game, you can find the tutorial mission that explains the role of the Warrior, Mage and Siege below. Happy Wars is available on Xbox Live now.
