Note: I was invited as media to this event. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

During the event, I had one on one time playing the game on a Nokia Lumia 928 smartphone. The game graphics and scenery was clear, colorful and amazing.

Playing the mobile game was surprising easy, even though I had to use two thumbs to activate the game and then move and shoot. Well, really I only needed one thumb to move and the other to shoot but you get my meaning.
