XBLA Today: Alien Spidy, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, Capcom Arcade Cabinet: 1986


A trio of new games have been added to the Xbox Live Arcade today. Come take a look…

The Capcom Arcade Cabinet continues to fill up as Capcom Arcade Cabinet: 1986 Pack was released today. The 1986 Pack has been priced at 800 Microsoft Points ($10) and includes Side Arms, Legendary Wings, and Trojan.

Another blast from the 80s past has been added to the XBLA today in the form of Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams. Priced at 1200 Microsoft Points ($15), Twisted Dreams is a new and original take on the Giana Sisters, a pair of game characters who originally rose to fame in 1987 with a game that blatantly ripped off Super Mario Bros.:

Rescue the Giana Sisters in this fast-paced platform game! Jump through tricky levels and transform in an instant from cute to rebellious and back. The entire environment changes with you in real time, including the soundtrack, which was produced by sound magician Chris Hülsbeck. Use your skills, solve challenging puzzles, and defeat nasty end bosses. Start an unusual adventure in this dreamlike remake, and experience the rebirth of a real cult classic of the 80s!

Finally, there’s Alien Spidy. For 800 Microsoft Points ($10) you can control an alien spider (bet you didn’t see that one coming) as he attempts to find his way home:

After losing contact with his explorer friend Virgi, our fearless alien hero Spidy heads to Earth in his spacecraft to find her. While entering the Earth’s atmosphere, his spacecraft suddenly fails and starts to break up, causing Spidy to crash-land on the strange planet, with his craft scattered across forests, throughout ponds and into dark caves. Spidy finds himself alone on an alien world and faces the epic challenge of tracking down Virgi, battling strange new enemies and finding the missing pieces from his spacecraft in order to repair the damage and make their escape home.
