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.

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.

Excellent game, judging from the demo. Too pricey though. Would definitely buy if on sale.

Please update to support windows phone 8. This was a highly anticipated game during wp7 launch and made by ms studios. Please update so I can play on my new hardware. Will get 5 stars again once this issue is resolved.

Best Windows game but it won't launch on Windows 10.

I played this game on WP7. It was my favorite game on m my phone. I was very excited to see it on Windows 10. Sadly, it crashes after I try to stay a new game. The cinematic attempts to play and the game relatives. This is a great game, but please fix the launching bug.

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.

Does not support WP8. I purchased a WP8 under the pretense that all WP7 apps (as stated by microsoft) would run on my WP8 device.

Unplayable on Windows 10

I liked this game a lot on my old Lumia 900 with WP7, but it won't even get to the gameplay on Windows 10 on Lumia 950XL. It just shows a blank video and then resets the game. Please fix, I'd buy again!

A great game but doesn't work on win 10

Worked on win 7 and 8, but goes into a loop that gets you back to the game's home page right aftre you choose a memory slot, it's a shame since only IloMilo shares the spot with this one. One of the best XBL games but doesn't work on Lumia 950 win 10
