Travel through the decades with five new Xbox One games now available to download through the Xbox Games Store…
Let’s start in the 2010s, with a pair of titles that don’t have any connection to a previous decade. Letter Quest: Grimm’s Journey Remastered is an RPG where you create words to cast spells, use items, and deliver dictionary-sized attacks to an opposing force of monsters. Meanwhile, Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek is a hidden object game about a missing girl and g-g-g-ghosts!
After that, we can skip back to the 80s for Tron Run/r, an “endless runner” reinvention of the radical sci-fi film. And if we hustle back another decade, we’ll find the inspiration for Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure, a 70s-themed dodge ball game featuring funk and disco and mustaches!
Finally, Xbox One owners can 23-skidoo their way to the 1930s to try out Blues and Bullets: Episode 2, an adventure game starring ex-Untouchable Eliot Ness.
More information on all of these games can be found after the break.
