Out Today: Giana Sisters, Alien Spidy
Posted by Ken Barnes
Platforming, platforming and platforming, oh my.
Wednesday's up, and that means Xbox Live Arcade release day. This week, the neon and retro-infused platform stylings of Alien Spidy hit the shelves, alongside the slightly more modern-looking platform stylings of Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams.
Alien Spidy (800 MSP)
Spidy has lost contact with his explorer friend Virgi, and finds himself crash-landed on Earth. Your task is to find the missing pieces from his spacecraft, his friend Virgi, and get back to their home planet. The game looks almost Tron-like in terms of visual styling, and could be a bit of a sleeper hit if the gameplay hits the right buttons.
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams (1,200 MSP)
The two sisters that were originally in the 8-bit Mario rip-off The Great Giana Sisters make a return in a slightly more honest way, with a platform puzzler that looks like it could fit the bill. At 1,200MSP, the gameplay will have to be on the money, but previews have been impressive.
So, are you going to take on some platforming action this week? If you are, let us know in the comments.
