The Harvest is a science fiction themed Action RPG that takes place on future Earth, some years after the fallout of a destructive alien invasion. These aliens, who have been come to be known as The Harvesters, use humans and animals to create cyborgs: crude amalgamations of flesh and machinery. Mankind, in the form of the Global Defence Force is fighting a war against The Harvesters using human controlled mechanized infantry units. The GDF army has been deployed to various parts of the world in order to fight back against The Harvesters in hope of restoring Earth to its rightful owners. You are part of a group that has been sent to investigate reported Harvester activity in the region of the ruins of an ancient city that was once used as military base for an organization that was a precursor to the GDF, which is where the game begins. The game world of The Harvest has been designed to provide not only visceral combat, but opportunities for exploration, character customization, and story progression. As players make their way through each game area, they must not only fight off wave after wave of The Harvester horde, but find hidden upgrades, perform story actions, and defeat large and imposing enemy boss units in order to move on to the next area. The Harvest has been designed from the ground up to be the best looking 3D mobile phone game to date, with innovative touch screen gameplay that brings Action RPG games on mobile devices out of the dark ages. Players are immediately immersed in an Action RPG game experience tailored to mobile phones, taking all the best from the genre, while removing the tedium and repetitiveness that is usually associated with games of this nature. At the same time, they are immersed into a deep and intriguing story that will leave them wanting to find out more.

Black screen on Win 10 Mobile

I did not get beyond the trial. This game will not run on my device. Once you choose new game, a video or cinematic appears to start, with just a black screen and sound. I moved the app to the device from my sd card, then cycled power on my phone. Sadly, it did not change the results. It looks and sounds like it could be a great game, a pity.

Still Broken

I agree. It still keeps looping through the video and logo at the beginning.

This is a really enjoyable game but it absolutely needs to be updated to run on WP8. Please continue to support your game. The new WP8 hardware desperately needs quality games and people paid for this expecting it to run on upgraded phones.

This game has got to be the first RPG to hold my attention for a long time in years. The plot is interesting, and the characters manage to have some quirks that made me laugh at odd moments. The graphics are phenomenal, very nearly like playing on the computer; and the sound effects/music are just fantastic. This is a very well-developed game. My only regret is that it is much too short, hence the lack of a star in this review.

Not without its issues: repetitive play, little unlockable content, and small story. That said, this is one of the best games I have spent money on wp7. No other RPG-similar game like it on wp7. Great graphic. tho repetitive, gameplay is still very fun. One note, bought this when weekly deal. 699 would be harder to swallow

Great time-waster. honestly a bit repetitive, but fun.

Great game. Easy controls and very addictive, but whenever I try to load a saved game, it crashes. I still give it four stars because it IS a good game, it just needs an update that will fix that. As soon as that is done, no complaints here. *It has been fixed as far as I can tell (edit)

Love it. Each player presents different challenges. Fun boss battles. Where is Harvester 2?




Platform: Mobile

Very fun and addictive. Despite impressive graphics it doesn't seem to drain the battery all that much. The ability to customize characters skills is a nice personal touch.
