EA Announce 'Spare Parts' for XBLA
Written Friday, June 11, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
EA's Play label has today announced XBLA adventure, Spare Parts, which sounds like a bit of a riff on Disney Pixar animation Wall-E, as two robots get tossed out with the rubbish onto a strange planet, which they must then escape.
"Courageous robots" Mar-T and Chip must collect and salvage 'spare parts' (ah! We see what they did there!) to repair an abandoned spaceship and make good their escape before the evil Lord Krung sends out his army of henchmen to destroy the poor little mechanical fellas.
Working together in local or online co-op, Mar-T and Chip will also be able to discover upgradable abilities like Rocket Boots that will aid them in their quest, while along the way they'll also be able to rescue other stranded robots.
Mar-T and Chip will come up against armies of Krofax troopers, hostile spider-monkeys (yes, you read that right) and a Super Huge Mega Laser (obviously) on their journey too.
Take a look at the first screens in the gallery.
