Microsoft Releases Free Tinker Game

17 Dic/09

Tinker was one of the few Windows Vista Ultimate extras that were released by Microsoft. It was a classic puzzle game that put the player in the role of a robot that had to solve 60 levels with classic puzzle elements. Microsoft made an announcement a few weeks ago that they would release some of the Vista Ultimate extras to the public. The game Tinker is the first to be released with Hold’Em, the other game that was exclusive to Vista Ultimate users, to follow suite later on.

Tinker is available at the Windows Live Marketplace which means that only users with a valid Windows Live account and an installed copy of Games for Windows Live can download the game for free. The good news – besides that the game is offered for free – is the fact that it is available not only for Windows 7 users but also for Windows XP and Windows vista users.

The not so good news is that Microsoft wants additional information before the game can be downloaded including the user’s name and address. A download of the Games for Windows live client is required before the download of the game can be started. The client can be downloaded directly at the Microsoft website. A Windows Live account can be created from within the program’s interface after the installation if that should be necessary.

Tinker itself has a size of 59 Megabytes and seems to be identical with the version that was released back then for Windows Vista Ultimate users. It will be interesting to see how Windows Vista Ultimate users react on the release of on of their exclusives. Everyone else will likely be very happy that this game is released for free.
