If you've been eager to try out the retro-inspired 3D platformer Penny's Big Breakaway on Xbox Series X|S, now is your chance.

Publisher Private Division and developer Evening Star have released a new demo across all platforms including Microsoft's storefront, so you can download this trial now and see what it's like for yourself.

Although we didn't review the game here on Pure Xbox, our colleagues at Nintendo Life and Push Square both had a look and were relatively happy with what it had to offer - noting at the time how the experience could benefit from some updates addressing some bugs and technical issues.

Fortunately, Evening Star has rolled out some updates since then, so it should be an improved experience.

Will you be checking out this demo? What are your thoughts so far? Let us know in the comments.
