View author's profile

With The Walking Dead: 400 Days now available on XBL, it might be easy to overlook today's other Xbox Live Arcade release, 2D side-scrolling physics-based platformer/shooter, Capsized. In this fast-paced game, you have to fight yor way through a mysterious alien world when you crash land your ship.

Contending with perilous environments, you'll have plenty of weapons including mortars, repeater rifles and more, as well as your handy grappling hook, jetpack and ship supplies to help you survive the treacherous alien terrain. You'll need to save your lost crewmates and escape the planet, across more than a dozen non-linear levels with multiple modes.

As well as these various modes, Capsized also includes co-op and over 20 hours of gameplay. You can download Capsized now from the Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points. Check out the launch trailer below.

@5 - Me too, I don't care if it's generic or whatever; all I care about is if the game is fun to play.

This should have been released BEFORE all those killer deals the last few days. At 800 MS Points... I think most people spent their random points on full 360 titles that were less than half the price!

Still... I'll download the trial version and have a go at it. I like these old school-style 2D games that are full of detail, as in the screenshots! I swear... if that character wasn't wearing clothes, I'd have some serious questions as to what he was shooting in that first picture!!! :-p

Tried the demo just there, they would have had a sale had i not gotten stuck in the environment 3 times at different points and had to restart the level.

Shame because I seems like decent fun but for that to happen on a games 1st level is not good.

Maybe I was just unlucky?

Might pick this up little later when I have some of my backlog cleared, looks pretty fun. Should only be 400 points though.

Does anyone care that this game was hand drawn? Yes, it might be a typical shooter, but to me, a hand drawn game is worth playing because of the time, patience and commitment it took to complete. ( I'm not saying other games don't ) Dust, an Elysian Tail would be another example, it's worth contributing to independent developers like this.

@24 To tell the you truth, I wasn't trying to imply that you were a female. Only just now did I come back here and see your GT, so I understand why you thought I was attacking. I was just being sexist in general; not directed. On topic, I just played the game and it does...suck.
