You can now download Age of Empires: Castle Siege. It’s free which means it’s not, i.e. users reporting it’s yet another pay to win game. It’s turn by turn/clash of clans style, not an actual RTS which Age of Empires was popular for. http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/age-of-empires-castle-siege/179cc09c-7d37-4281-b85e-602187b7d032 Is there any point in having QR codes until Microsoft restores […]
