No matter what anyone tells you, there is most definitely a time and a place for a cheap and cheerful local cooperative title. And seeing as there isn’t anything cheaper than Neighborhorde, you may wish to give it a crack.

A 1-4 player local co-op shoot em up, Neighborhorde will set you back just £3.99 (although if you’re quick, you may even get that discounted). For such a low price, we wouldn’t expect anything mind-blowing or graphically intense, and Neighborhorde doesn’t surprise us there as it’s all a bit basic.

But basic can be good and should you manage to hook a few friends along for the ride, with each one dropping just a quid into the kitty, will find a fairly fun, albeit brief, cooperative experience. Expect lots of different enemies and a good number of fun weapons to equip yourself with, dishing out the damage to whoever dares get near. With superpowers also present, and the chance to unlock further maps, characters and wearables the more you play, the low low price of Neighborhorde nearly ensures it’s worth a look.

Just get yourself over to the Xbox Games Store and nab it right now. You could also check out our full review too. It’s well worth a read.

You and your pals are playing too many videogames, and Mom said it’s time to go outside for a bit. Little does she know the dangers spawning outside in Neighborville. Portals open up from another dimension. Evil robots, dragons, wizards, and zombie Abe Lincoln burst out from these portals and start attacking you and your pals! Luckily, you have your trusty wooden sword and your pal saved some bottlerockets from 4th of July. How is that going to help? Use your imagination, kid!

Each night you’ll unlock more of the 40+ crazy toys to add to your arsenal and become a more powerful team by choosing from 40+ game-changing superpowers. Break open presents found around the map to find the rad weapons you’ve chosen. Dash around as flames blast out from your feet with the new “Hot Feet” superpower you just picked.

You think to yourself, “No baddie can stop me now!” However, as you get stronger, so does the horde of spooky enemies. Each night you’ll face a randomly-selected but ever-increasing combination of enemies including goop-tossing Lunch Ladies, magic-blasting Wizards, and axe-wielding Abe Lincolns. As you’re bashed apart by the onslaught of baddies, you realize the only way to survive is the power of friendship; staying close to your team in the Friendzone is the only way you’ll regain your health.

Since there are 80+ weapons and superpowers, and tons of enemies, no game is the same as the last and you’ll always have a new strategy to try. Blast bottle rockets at evil dodgeballs. Blow a bubble-gum-shield to protect your team. Catch the incoming robots on fire with your hair dryer flamethrower. Smash a wizard’s face off with your trusty wooden sword. Can you defeat the bad guys before bedtime?
