Microsoft has performed their latest update of the Xbox Live Game Store and three new games are now available on the digital shelves.
The Bridge is a puzzler that features gorgeous black-and-white artwork that was inspired by M.C. Escher. It’s priced at $9.99.
Also available this week is Cartoon Network Punchtime Explosion XL ($19.99), a Smash Bros-like mashup of Cartoon Network characters, and Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 ($59.99), the latest game in Konami’s footie franchise.
More information on all three games can be found after the break.
The Bridge ($9.99)
The Bridge is a 2D logic puzzle game that forces the player to reevaluate their preconceptions of physics and perspective. It is Isaac Newton meets M. C. Escher. Manipulate gravity to redefine the ceiling as the floor while venturing through impossible architectures. Explore increasingly difficult worlds, each uniquely detailed and designed to leave the player with a pronounced sense of intellectual accomplishment. The Bridge exemplifies games as an art form, with beautifully hand-drawn art in the style of a black-and-white lithograph.
Cartoon Network Punch Time Explosion XL ($19.99)
Finally, all your favorite Cartoon Network characters in one epic brawler! This amazing game packs a massive punch of XL excitement! Join your favorite characters in the battle of a lifetime, in a game that will blow your mind.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 ($59.99)
Delivering unbelievable realism, PES 2014 sets a new benchmark in soccer games. The ball is the focus, offering new levels of control and fundamentally changing play. Konami’s celebrated Fox Engine offers stunning detail and combined with a new soccer system offers improvements at every level. Other key features include the M.A.S.S physics engine, which makes every tussle unique and true-to-life, plus new animation tech and emotion mapping of players, teams and fans.
