I Accidentally…In Space! Ep1 is a cross between a platform game and a vertical shooter. Waves of aliens appear at the top of the screen and you shoot them like how you would in a shooter, once a target is reached some platforms will appear which you can jump up on to move upwards. The higher you reach, the more score multiplier you gain. I like genre merges and every now and again you get great results such as this game. The game comes with seven levels to play on, along with accomplishments to unlock. Well worth a punt for 80 :MSPoints:. More information can be found on the Marketplace, a trailer can be found on page 2.
Solve It – Pack 1 is a 3D puzzle game in which you must help Dennis get to the Star at the end of a series of obstacles. To do this you must program in his movements in a simple step by step pattern. So for example to reach the star which you need to travel forward three cubes, turn left then walk forward two steps, you would click on the icons for Forward three times, Turn Left once, Forward twice. Check the above video to see a better example. It sounds simple and it kinda is at first, but the later levels are quite challenging. There are thirty levels to complete so good value for your 80 :MSPoints:, if you like a good puzzle game then look no further. More information can be found on the Marketplace.
