This weeks XBLA title is Assault Heroes at 800 points (link). Hadn't heard of this one before, but it looks pretty promising :thumbsup:

At last we're starting to see some regular non retrocrap releases. Looks like I'll be getting this one, assuming the demo is good.

Wow, three original titles in a row, superb!

I remember liking the looks of this one ages ago(think it was on an E3 Arcade video on marketplace).

800 points sounds like a sensible price point aswell, from what I remember it looked like a good game. Will probably be buying this one now I'm stocked up on points, unless of course I don't like the demo.

Thanks for the info Markoos, can't wait until wednesday now:smashin:

Wow, this game sounds like one of my old favourite arcade games, "Speed Rumbler". Only difference is the ability to shoot in a different direction to where you are traveling. Hopefully, it won't disappoint :)

Will be downloading tonight, I love the idea of online co-op, anyone fancy a game of this tonight?

Just had a quick blast, seems like a great little game, will decide later if it's worth a full purchase as 5 mins is a short test. Pretty sure I'll be claiming this one though.

If I do buy I'd probably be up for some co-op later on mate:smashin: will confirm if I buy the full game when I give it another go when I get back.

Just played the demo, now this is more like it!. I have to mention that the game isn't the smoothest experience in the world, slowing down a bit when things get busy. I still think I'll get it though.

lovely little shooter i must say, seriously i was getting sick of those naff 80's arcade games. Finally a decent arcade game thats fun, cheap and pretty. Does get a bit intense at times and bullets can look tiny (wonder if its worse on a SD tv?), also there is a bit of sluggishness at times but overal nice.

Reminds me of Mercs, the old Arcade shooter....

I must say it's one of the best Live Arcade games ever !!

Now this is what I've been waiting for! Best arcade download I've had since Cloning Clyde I think. Plays a bit like a classic top scrolling shooter with a touch of Geometry Wars thrown in for good measure. Lovely.

If anyone wants to play Co-op I should be about this evening though I'm not very good!
