The Metronomicon features local co-op to take down the baddies together, along with a number of game modes including Daily Challenges to keep you coming back for more. It also includes a fully-licensed soundtrack featuring some never before released music and the promise of new tracks being added, so it looks like this one will be dancing long into the early hours!
It’s available now on the Xbox Games Store and priced at £15.99, with two DLC packs you could grab too for £1.59 each. The Indie Game Challenge Pack 1 brings three extra tunes from some classic indie games, whilst the Chiptune Challenge Pack 1 includes three chiptune music tracks.
