XBLA Today: Wreckateer

Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade 2012 continues to roll forward with today’s Xbox Live Arcade addition: Wreckateer.

The game, which has been priced at 800 Microsoft Points ($10), takes the destructive mentality of Angry Birds and merges it with high definition graphics and Kinect controls:

Wreckateer uses the Kinect to put you in control of a massive castle-wrecking Ballista. With the help of Wreck and Tinker, use six magic projectiles to travel the land and destroy 60 castles.

Wreckateer also marks the debut of Microsoft’s new “Avatar Famestar” program, a new way for players to unlock Avatar outfits, but with a twist. When a player is rewarded with an Avatar Famestar outfit, it’ll only wearable in other Avatar Famestar-supported games.
