Flee - Review

Atabow is offering the Windows Phone game Flee over at the Marketplace. Flee reminds me a lot of the old board game Sorry and you can test your skills against the computer or an online community.

Simple, yet effective, graphics combined with an enjoyable gaming concept makes Flee a game worth trying. To find out more on this Windows Phone game, make the jump past the break.

Game Layout

Flee's layout is simple and makes use of the Metro design. The main pages are spread out over horizontally navigated pages. You can choose to play against the Windows Phone or Online, view the Leaderboards, view the Help section, and access the settings (setting up your screen name and mute sound).

The online game randomly invites others Flee players to a game. The only downside to this option is that there doesn't appear to be many Flee players out there. If none are available for an invite, you'll receive an error message.  I also had several occassions where the server wasn't available for online play.

The game board layout is just as simple as the main menu is. You have a grid like pattern and two base camps. One for you (by default the Blue Player) and one for your opponent. Each camp/starting point has four pieces or pins, that have to be moved along the grid to the house that sits in the middle of the screen.

Movement is done by spinning a wheel that sits at the bottom of the screen. The object of the game is to move all your playing pieces into the house.

Along the journey you have "?" spaces that give you another spin of the wheel and "X" spaces that will send you back to your base camp. While you can't occupy the same space with more than one playing piece, if your opponent lands on a space you're on, your piece goes back to base camp.

Overall Impression

Game play wasn't terribly difficult but there is a bit of strategy involved. Some might prefer to work on pin at a time across the board, while others like to get their pins out of the base camp as quickly as possible.

While enjoyable to play, Flee lacks an addictive quality to it. There's just nothing to grab you and keep you coming back for more. It is, however, a nice game to have in you library for a change of pace.

Still, the game has potential.  I think if the developer can address the server issues for online play and as the online player community grows, Flee will have more appeal.

Flee is an ad-supported, free game and you can download it here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.

Please download V2 of this game "Flee With Friends" instead. The new version is sleek, fast and has more twists making the game much more exciting than version 1. V2 allows you to choose your friend to play online. This version also has achivements.
Here is the link to flee with friends:
