One of today’s Xbox Live Arcade additions should be familiar to anyone who checked out the PlayStation Network update yesterday. While another will debut on the XBLA today before making its way to that other download service next week.
Choplifter HD (which is also available on the PSN) can now be downloaded from the XBLA for 1200 Micorsoft Points ($15). The game, which is an HD remake of an Atari 2600 classic, puts players in the shoes of a rescue pilot:
In Choplifter HD, players take on the role of an up and coming rescue pilot asked to join the elite, international helicopter rescue team. Pilots will be trained to command a variety of helicopters with offensive capabilities including missiles and mini-guns, as well as a very vocal co-pilot. Combining reality with elements of fantasy, the more than 30 rescue missions will range from captured military prisoner extraction to saving survivors of viral outbreaks.
Meanwhile, Amy (which will give PS3 owners some undead deja vu next week) is now available to download from the XBLA for 800 Microsoft Points ($10):
The city is infected! Walking corpses sniff the air, flaring out anything still alive. There is only one thing keeping you from running for your life. A special little girl holds your hand… You’re not going anywhere without her. Amy offers you a tense, innovative and immersive experience in survival horror gaming. Play two original characters who alone are desperately fragile, but united become a force capable of confronting the denizens of a living hell. Get ready to become infected.
