In terms of unlikely sequels, a 40th anniversary sequel to the original Asteroids was pretty darn unlikely. But developer Mauricio Felippe has decided to surprise us all with Back to Belt, and is unleashing it on Xbox One and Series X|S today.
Other than the small addition of the Tourism update and premium DLC that came with that, it's been absolutely ages since we saw any further expansion to the world of Surviving Mars. But now it's finally time for us to go Below & Beyond. Will you?
We’ve seen demos for Spacelines from the Far Out hit Xbox and PC stores in recent times, but today, just as the pre-orders open up, Skystone Games and the development team at Coffeenauts have confirmed that their comedic galactic jaunt will be coming to Xbox and PC in November.
Imagine Earth is immensely enjoyable. The game modes on offer are good and the campaign is excellent. But above all else a good sim game should be easy to use, addictive to play, and it should always make you feel like you want to play it more and more. Imagine Earth ticks all those boxes.
Solos gets a bit existential for a budget, single player shoot-’em up. What if you were your own worst enemy? What if the bullets you had to face in life were all your own?
You’d be hard-pressed to say that brick-breaker games are still relevant. But while there’s no brick-breaker that you could point to and say “that’s what Breakout looks like in 2021”, the genre isn’t dead, either. Perhaps it’s the simplicity of making an Arkanoid clone, or the nostalgic glow it gives a small subset of players, but brick-breakers still arrive on Xbox every six months or so. But what are the best? Well, we're here to rank the best Brick-Breaker games you can play today on Xbox.
We're a year away from being able to get hands-on with the sci-fi roguelike that is Gravity Oddity, but if you're looking for a gravity-bending, teleporting looter-shooter, it's one to certainly keep an eye on.
ASTRO AQUA KITTY is a delight. It's a well-thought out space-themed Metroidvania that will appeal to a range of players; especially those who revel in the micro-management of weapons, items and the percentage points they bring. If you liked what the kitties brought with AQUA KITTY UDX, this is going to please you on an altogether grander scale.
Back in 2017 Aqua Kitty UDX dropped onto Xbox One and fast became a contender for indie game of the year. Now, some four years later the Tikipod team are back, and this time they are taking the kitten to space with Astro Aqua Kitty.
Should you ever stumble through the delights of the Steam store for PC, you'd see that it is chock-full with some rather intriguing gaming experiences. One of those is that of Last Oasis, a game that the donkey Crew team behind it have continued to push through Early Access. Now though, just as Season 3 of Last Oasis kicks off, the game is welcoming in a whole new set of players - Xbox players!
Being a retro revival of Asteroids isn't the flashiest look for an indie game and I fear Back to Belt on Xbox may suffer for that. But if you have any interest at all in arcade-style, pick up and play games, this one is definitely worth a look. It does not get everything right but there’s a lot of challenge and fun to be had here.
Space Crew is frustrating, by design, and for the risk-averse and “play it safe” players, there’s just no way to play error free: you just have to try and roll with the punches, suck up the damage and shrug off the losses. However it is nicely designed and will be hugely popular with some; if you liked Bomber Crew or the likes of FTL, you’ll likely love this one.
It’s often the case that the best puzzle games have the simplest of concepts. ReactorX on Xbox One casts doubt on that. In fact, I struggle to think of anything that the game does particularly well. It’s a puzzle game - and a short one at that - without any real challenge, it’s got some of the worst controls I have experienced, and the graphics are nothing remarkable. The fact is, unless you’re interested in the quick and easy 1000 Gamerscore on offer, there is no real reason to pick ReactorX up.
#Funtime on Xbox One is right up there with the very best twin-stick shooters on the market. It provides plenty of playing options, it has just enough challenge to make sure you find yourself going back time and time again, and it’s got a brilliantly responsive and smooth control system which is an utter must for a game of this ilk.
Tracks has received its first premium DLC pack, and this brings with it a new area and plenty of new building options, all based around space and beyond. The Sci-Fi pack has arrived on the Xbox Store, and we had a chance to play with it. Is it worth the current £3.29 asking price – cheaper than a model train starter set?
Task Force Kampas on Xbox One can be a fun and unique experience for those who have never stepped into the fascinating world of Japanese doujin shooters. All things considered it’s a pretty basic arcade shooter, and the gameplay variety is fairly limited, but the challenge and level design can be compelling as you slowly improve and get a higher score.
There’s an intense twin-stick shooter looking to put a fresh spin on gravity and it's coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC later this year. It’s called Curved Space and involves you going up against some invading inter-dimensional spiders.
It is very clear from the outset that Freedom Finger on Xbox One is a niche game. It being a space shoot ‘em up is enough to put people off from the start. But if you also have an aversion to satirical, on the knuckle toilet humour, or more experimental music, then steer clear. If this does sound like something for you though, then Freedom Finger will offer a few hours of a lot of fun.
It may have been around longer than almost every other game out there, but it isn’t quite out of ideas yet; it’s PONG like you’ve never seen before, and yet retains everything you love about it! What is it? PONG Quest for Xbox One, PS4, Switch and PC.
Super Mega Space Blaster Special Turbo on Xbox One does a lot of things well, especially given the price point, but ultimately those great things are sullied by strange design choices and weak design.
It has to be said that the latest modern take on the SHMUP to hit Xbox One delivers one hell of a titular mouthful. But there's most definitely something rather appealing about Super Mega Space Blaster Special Turbo.
I was excited to start playing XenoRaptor on Xbox One. Unfortunately, that excitement faded quickly once the game started.
Like your twin-stick shooters? Love bullet-hell? You'll be right up home with the launch of XenoRaptor.
Stellatum on Xbox One certainly catches the eye at first, and the upgrade system adds a basic element of strategy. However, despite being playable, it runs out of ideas quickly and starts to feel like a grind, which makes it hard to recommend.
