Also, we're giving away a copy of EvilQuest on the site. I posted it in the contest page on CAG. It's probably not kosher to post to it here as well, but if you head to armless you'll see it, or if you go to the cag contest thread.

As hard as it is to recommend yet another zombie-themed twin-stick shooter. Block Zombies! was just released and it is pretty damn good. It's the same basic formula as you've come to expect, only with a LEGO-inspired visual theme and a more open-ended map. For me it was an easy impulse buy at one dollar.

Did the Escape Goat dev ever say why he had to wait for February to drop the price of his game? I'm sure there's a reason but it just seems strange when games such as Cthulhu Saves the World dropped instantly. I find myself holding out hope for other titles such as Wizorb and Train Frontier Express, any of these would be worth three bucks in my opinion but I'm not going to jump on them if there's a chance I'll basically be getting three-for-one somewhere down the road.

Block Zombies is a ton of fun! The fact that it's in an open-ended map really helps it be a lot more fun than so many arena-based shooters. Can you imagine that game with actual missions and maybe some more RPG elements? Would be awesome. I have a full review up for the game though. http://www.armlessoc...e-living-legos/

Wizorb and Train Frontier Express are both really a lot of fun. I think there are links to my reviews of them both on the front page of this thread.

After playing Hypership Out of Control for iOS, I think I'm going to get the XBLIG version at 80 points. But there seems to be a sequel. Has anyone played both it and Hypership Still out of Control? Any preference on which is better?

They are pretty similar, but the new one has a few new modes. I'd say get the new one. They're both the same price.

Wizorb might be able to squeeze in since there is some discrepancy between the size of the .ccgame and how it unpacks on the 360. There have been games over 50 MB in the past still able to get an 80 point listing just for that reason. Since Wizorb is just 6 MB over the limit, I'd imagine the developer may be in position to do just that.

I asked the devs about that and they said they weren't sure if they wanted to do it or not. I think some devs might be hesitant if they are selling the game on another platform. Wizorb is $3 on Desura, so they may not want it sold at 2 prices. But, that's just a guess.
