    Two new Live Arcade games announced!

    HoopWorld and Roboblitz set to launch on Xbox Live Arcade in Spring 2006...

    Two developers have today announced their respective games that are set to grace Xbox Live Arcade in Spring 2006. Naked Sky Entertainment’s Roboblitz has been built using Unreal Engine 3 and Ageia PhysX engines and follows the story of a robot that sets out to stop a band of mechanical brains. Set across at least fifteen missions, the surprising detail is that the game still weighs in at under 50MB.

    “With RoboBlitz, Naked Sky brings to Xbox Live Arcade an enjoyable action title combined with imaginative design,” said Ross Erickson, Xbox Live Arcade Games Portfolio Manager. “It’s terrific to see a game that delivers both thrilling gameplay and cutting-edge technology that really demonstrates the power of Xbox 360.”

    “Releasing RoboBlitz through the Xbox Live Arcade on Xbox 360 puts us at the heart of digital distribution,” said Naked Sky CEO, Tian Mu. “Xbox Live Arcade is a new, cost-effective way for independent developers like Naked Sky to get our console games to market.”

    The second title, HoopWorld, from Streamline Studios, sees six players take part in three vs., three action, where the more ‚showboating’ with a ball is done, the greater the points awarded.

    Indeed, but GoW is a major release - this is a (significantly cheaper) Live Arcade only game.
