This is how a WP7 applications should always be, smooth and nicely integrated in the phone’s UI (and it also runs under lock screen). It’s nice to see good performing more great performing applications appearing on Windows Phone 7 lately (yes yes don’t worry I’m still working on mine…).

It can get really boring and annoying after while that’s why it’s a episodic micro-game which means that more episodes will be released in the future (just like on the iPhone iOS version) that will bring new locations, characters, new ways to kill and also mini-games. The game is Xbox Live enabled so it’s packed full of achievements. Check the video after the break:
