OK, apologies if this has already been mentioned, but with the recent price changes to the indie games, I've been a lot more tempted to go and grab a couple of the games I liked. For me, the bottom of the range is the ideal price for indie games. It's a throw-away amount, so it doesn't really feel like you're spending anything when you drop 80MSP ($1/68p) on a new game.

Anyway, I wanted to draw your attention to a game that I assume was released today - I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MBIES 1NIT!!!!1

http://download.xbox.com.edgesuite.net/content/xna/assets/585502A6_World/xboxboxart.jpg

For 80MSP you get a two-stick shooter ALA Geometry Wars, where you run around shooting/burning/lasering zombies. Good? Of course! Then you have the music, which has to be heard to be believed. All I will say is that the game oozes style. It could easily be released as a 400MSP XBLA title IMO.

Anyway, it turns out that it's made by Ska Studios - the same guy that brought us The Dishwasher. I strongly recommend anyone with a spare 80MSP on their account to go and grab this game NOW! :D

While on the topic of Indie Games, here are some other 80MSP games I think are worth a mention:
- Being
- Johnny Platform's Biscuit Romp
- Ladybird Galaxy

When I first saw this thread I was thinking, Waggly, did you lose six of your ten fingers and one side of your brain when you made this thread?

Then I opened it and realized it's not your fault, in fact, it's nobodies fault, it's the most clever game title in the history of gaming.

I'm definitely going to be checking this game out. I'm almost positive I have a spare 80MSP on my account, so purchasing it shouldn't be an issue. Thanks for the heads up!

Awesome, I looked at a few of these the other day but never actually bought any. Do they come with achievements? At 80 msp. I can't imagine they do.

No problem guys, I thought it was worth a mention. ;)

I also forgot to say that although I've only played it in single player, the game appears to be up to 4-player co-op! Another bit of awesomeness! :D

That is awesome, a game for 80-MSP has 4 player co-op. I think I will definetley be picking this up.

Waggly, you really shouldn't make threads. You really should stick to the Screenshot Game Thread, and the VLA discussions.

Perfect! I have about 100 MSP sitting around and I love zombie games. I think I might try this. I rarely check the Indie games section so thanks for the heads up. And theres really nothing to loose at 80 MSP if it does suck. I also need something new to play for a bit even if it is short.

EDIT: You added an extra exclamation mark in the title. The game only has three not four haha. Just noticed that after you tryed to get the exact title...

This I (would have) bought on the title alone, if not having read this thread before seeing it! Excellent recommendation, great fun! You couldn't go far wrong for 80 points, but this is definately worth it!

Yeah, it's probably because I'll called him a creep! :D

Or it might be just because he's a big douche, one of the two anyway! :p

i bought this on the strength of the theme music lol its worth 80mp just to listen to the song lol although the game itself is actually quite good


A good time killer for only 80mp

But pretty cool at the same time.

Im thinking of buying a indie game after seeing how cheap they are.
I have 170ms points spare.

I might get one of these indie games seeing as I got 100 m$ points floating around on one of my accounts.

08-20-2009, 08:55 PM
The game was fun and for a dollar you can't beat it, but the constant changing background was distracting as hell for me and I almost died a couple of times because of it. But im sure as soon as I get some points for doom 2 i'll pick this one up with it.

[Waggly Bean]
08-20-2009, 10:58 PM

Wow. Thanks - so you didn't trust me at all? :p

convinced 3 of my friends to get it and were gonna do some co-op tonight!
Um... they all bought it on their consoles? I'm pretty sure the co-op is local only. It doesn't say anything about Live play, it just says 'Press Start'. That suggests local play to me. ;)

I bought it.

That game is OSSIM for $1... money well spent.

UnwiseZebra
08-21-2009, 03:13 AM
I bought it. I wish I had just had enough spare, but I only had a 50 point balance so I had to add 400. Still worth it to get this game for $1, but I did have to pay $5 =/.

Now I have more incentive to get 4 more 80 point indie games I suppose. Once I lose interest in this one that is.

KSizzle
08-21-2009, 10:37 AM
Everyone seems to be recommending it. I love zombie games as well. I think I am gonna scoop this one up for a buck. Thanks for the heads up because I never look at the community games.

Yea Bean tried it out and it was a blast who knows maybe this will turn up on XBLA one day i also played the other game that tries to be like Arkanoid can't remember the name but your better of with not buying it as you can't replace a legend like Arkanoid

When I first saw this game, I laugh at the title. Then after I was done laughing the download finished. I decided to play it right then and there..


First impression was: 80 Points and the title screen hurts my eyes. Press Start, play.. okay how do I shoot? Oh okay cool Geometry Wars style! Wait what is that awesome background music? Is he singing about his own game? Omg that is freakin hillarious xD!

So many z0mbies!!1 but it's so addictive so far, song has a good beat and is hillarious! Did he just say "It's just a dollar, and I hope you pay!"!? So many lights! Erk

Oh my god so many zombies/blobs/snake blocks!! I still have 4 lifes left tho, come on I can live! WHAT! NOOO TRIALS OVER! :'(

Time to get brother in law to like it(was not hard), he bought it! We played to the very end of the game, wow ~.~ ..
There is so much WIN in this game, and it's just a dollar! People this is the Indie game to get if you never wanted to buy an Indie game because you thought it was under developed.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention, Bean. I don't usually check out the indie games anymore, as there are some that are absolute crap, but I did happen on a few Japanese originating games that were pretty decent. I'll have to give this one a shot, I DO have a spare 80 pts floating around after getting Shadow Complex and Trials HD (which I hope are worth the friggin' points...)

We played it 2 player co-op, First was Blue and Second was Red(me). It was really fun, and so crazy getting into the hell level xD. We both were like, "oh come on how did I Died?" and trying to help each other get every life up we could. Flame thrower for the win! It's like singleplayer but with a friend, I don't think there were more zombies but there was a race for higher score :D. I think I hit somewhere near 740,000!

Also about my sig, I am working on a new one but with actual in game stuff! Check it soon and you will see eventually xD

They do blend in with the background. Best bet is to just keep your eye on them and nothing else, they "fall from the sky" so they appear big but when they are at their smallest is when you can shoot them, and they can kill you. Everything else just sticks out like a sore thumb on that section.

I don't think you understood the atmosphere the song/gam/title were ment to bring.

I felt it was ment to be like: "O I CAn Mayk my own gayme?" and someone just threw it together and posted it on Indie Games for a dollar. But if you think about it, the game is really solid and the song is really catchy. The lighting effects background changes was all well done, and as short as it is its alot of fun for only a dollar.

Does this have cheevos or just for fun like?
For a dollar its worth it not haveing achievements. It's a good thing to have tho when your downloading a game/demo and you can't play online or else the download will stop. Beating one level takes like 10-15 minuts.

ive made it to the end, you just get a killscreen about 10 secs before the music finishes, there arnt really levels but there are constantly changing backgrounds and enimies, i think the song changed 4 times but i couldnt stop laughting at the intro. my high score is 891010 and obviously the initialls are "ASS", anyone done better because there are still enimies on screen when its over

I averaged in the high 700,000's and just barely made it over 810,000. How do you do it? I know flamethrower is the epic weapon in the game, it can kill anything with one shot even the astroids and their babys!

i used the lmg thing (the one slightly better than the starting weapon) just because it has lots of ammo and spray. i managed to beat my own high score but not by much, and im not at my xbox but i think it was like 890,000. not much higher than that anyway, and i think you get bonous points for extra lives coz i had 9 left (im that good :)) and didnt think i beat my old high score, if anyone finds out if im not paying enough attention or if the extra lives do give bonouses please reply

I just had a look around at the 80 points Indie games and Ninja Train is an interesting concept, only played it once so far though but it looks promising.

I didn't think much of Ninja Train. It was a good platformer in a way, but the 'train view' ruined it for me, as all it does is block part of your screen. I also completed the whole game during my timed trial, so I figured it really wouldn't be worth a buy.

Has anyone played the Indie Game 'Nasty'? Now that was good, but unfortunately it's 400MSP, and I'm just not going to pay that when there's still 400MSP XBLA games I want. If it was 80MSP I would've bought it straight off, and if it was 240MSP, I would have definitely considered it. It's definitely worth a play of the trial anyway, and hopefully it'll go down in future so I can pick it up! :D

I put these in my first post, but I'll go into a little more detail here as you asked specifically:

- Being - A little cutesy platformer. Nicely done, but I think it'll be very short.
- Johnny Platform's Biscuit Romp - A silly but strangely addictive platformer. Well worth checking out IMO.
- Ladybird Galaxy - Possibly the 2nd best 80 pointer I've found! Like Z0mbies, it's got up to 4 players at once, and also like z0mbies, it's a simple yet strangely addictive one. The graphics are cartoony, but it still holds together and feels quite professional.

Today's new 80MSP games are also worth a quick blast. Here's a rundown:

Track Architect - Anybody who didn't want to pay 1200MSP for Trials HD can buy this, because it's pretty much the 'shareware' version, except in a car! :p Nicely put together, obviously not a patch on Trials, but I wouldn't expect that for 1120MSP less! :D
Arrow Run - A simple 'race maze' game, where you compete against either the computer or a friend to get through the arrow-maze first. I reckon this one would provide a few minutes of drunken entertainment with some friends round.
