This weeks Xbox Indie Game Round Up includes Flight Adventure 2, FITS-Fishing in the sea and SteamSunk.
Below is our compilation video showing gameplay from the weeks releases. Please take a look and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/TheGamergeddon.
Up next are this weeks releases sorted in a rough order on how good they are over three categories. Trial impressions have been wrote for the Geddon it! category games and they are a must try and/or buy. Armehgeddon is a category that has some games that are worth considering at least playing the trial to see if you like them, they are by no means bad. The final category, Armageddon outta here!, contains games that are probably not worth the time unless something sounds interesting to you. Both the Armehgeddon and Armageddon outta here! use the developers game descriptions.

Flight Adventure 2 is a flight simulator featuring (licensed) P-51 Mustang aircraft. You can free fly around the map or race against another plane either locally with a ghost plane or online with a friend. I am far from being a good pilot so I can’t say if the controls are good or not, but I could fly the plane so they can’t be bad. Graphics are nicely done with decent landscapes to explore, both internal and external camera views are possible. This flight sim probably wont be for everyone but if you have an interest in aircraft you should check it out.

XBLIG has a lack of fishing games so FITS-Fishing in the sea goes a bit of the way to filling in the gap. Up to four players can take part in a fishing competition split over a number of stages. Players take turns to set the bait then cast it, when the float sinks you simply press the A button to reel the fish in. It is very easy to play and should be good fun with some friends. There are around 100 varieties of fish to catch and they are added to the record so there are no excuses for the one that got away 😉 Fishing fans will love the game but I recommend everyone take a look as it is a fun game.

SteamSunk is a twin stick arena shooter. The battles take place on the sea and waves of enemies include both sea and air vehicles. There seems to be a good number of weapons and power ups to collect from the wreckage left by enemies including the usual machine guns and the always fun flamethrower. The sea location makes a change from land based combat and is worth a try at least.
This category has games that are well worth trying if the developers descriptions interest you. The games are by no means bad, but may lack the quality, design, price or something else that keeps it out the top category.
