Who could expect such a good game, from that cover?

I got really shocked to play this one.

I purchased XBOX360 very recently, and didn't think to purchase any indie Games from that. Anyway I wish to try some of them, picked this up, and...

At first minute, it was just small Indie Game, zombie-theme top down shooter. Maybe just some little kid made it for fun, nothing more than that. I was wrong. Around 3 minutes later, everything became to change. That cheesy punk music became much better, enemy became different, and even background is going very experimental (for top-down shooter). At least, this is worth for your 80 MS point.

The only 1 bad thing about this game is, it's made by Ska Studios. They released [Zombie Smashers] series for PC in the past, and released [Dishwasher] for XBLA already. Well, they are not so small to release 1$ game for Indie Games section.

Where to buy : XBLA Indie Game section at XBOX360. (Official Blog)

P.S. : Multiplay up to 4 people could be available, but not through online, maybe.

Few days ago, I bought XBOX360, finally. And my 1st. purchased game was, [Puzzle Quest : Challenge of the Warlords].

Well. For Pig-Min Korean, I did several features as Review (Nintendo DS / PSP / PC) - Interview - Column. I played & wrote articles about that too much. And XBLA is my 3rd. version to try. Unusual for me, because I play game & quit very fast. However there are reasons.

1. I must be familiar with XBOX360, and need proper game.
2. GamersScore...

XBOX360 is cool, but I need some Game to play which I could use for it properly. I got [Lego Batman] & [Pure] as Bundle, but they are too difficult for me. It's already midnight & can't go out to purchase some package, so I entered XBLA. And purchased it.

For GamersScore, 1 of my friend told me a lot 'how GamesScore is important', and I knew it very well. I might get some easy-achievement games, but it's already midnight. [Puzzle Quest] is not so easy game, but i already cleared it & could be better than other games.

That's why I re-purchased [Puzzle Quest] for XBLA. Still a Good Game, even better than newcomer [Gyromancer].

P.S. : How many people will do multiple purchase (or rent), to get PS3 Trophy & XBOX360 GamersScore? That could be another interesting aspects for recent game market, and that 'achievement hunter' market could be much bigger than we assume.

P.S. 2 : My GamerID is mrkwang, US account. Please add me friend if you wish. And also for XBOX360 review copies. :)

We all liked [Bejeweled], and really addicted to [Puzzle Quest : Challenge of the Warlords].
So Popcap & Square Enix thought about something? Not sure.
However they collaborated, and made new Puzzle RPG game [Gyromancer]!
This is based on [Bejeweled Twist], so could be improved battle system.

It's available XBLA for XBOX360 & Steam for PC.
Popcap didn't release any press release yet, however Square Enix made homepage.

Just the problem is, minimum spec. is high for PC casual game. I can't play with my Netbook, so I must install it with my Desktop at home.

Steam has Demo for this game. So if you want, you'd try it. (Of couse you want!)
