Fusion Sentient is now available in the Windows Phone Marketplace. We’ve seen this game before at New York Comic-Con and it’s got some unique features. First of all it can communicate with the Xbox 360 Arcade game called Fusion Genesis which is a completely different type of game, but the Sentient robots that you build up and use during the Windows Phone game can be used as extra weapons in Fusion Genesis. There’s also an auction section where you can buy and sell these Sentient robots that you may be building up in the Windows Phone game. People playing Fusion Genesis and may not even have a Windows Phone can buy your Sentient robots in order to use in the Xbox 360 game.
The Fusion Sentient game itself takes a lot of learning. It’s not an obvious pick-up and go type of game where all you have to do is pull the slingshot back. When you start playing it will take you through some training so you can learn how to move the robots, switch stances for more agressive attacks or defense maneuvers, learn special teleportation or healing features, etc. You’ll also learn how to customize the robots for better destructive power or whatnot.
Then the actual game play involves missions where you control a number of these robots and send them to do certain things. Usually the first phase of a mission involves overtaking a “heart” base station while other phases may include defending that base. The game is fully three dimensional and reminds me a lot of “The Harvest” also available on Windows Phone.
You can download Fusion Sentient here for $2.99 with a free trial available.
It works with Fusion Genesis which is available on the Xbox 360 Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points, and you can check out a trailer for that game below.
