Three new Xbox One games are now available to download through the Xbox Games Store today…
Heart & Slash is a robotic love story that also doubles as a 3D brawler with roguelike elements. The levels are randomly generated and the deaths are permanent, but hopefully you can find time for romance too. Meanwhile, Monochroma is a “cinematic” puzzle platformer that takes place in a… surprise… monochromatic industrial world.
Finally this week, Kinect fans will be able to download Kung-Fu For Kinect, a game that transforms players into superheroes who can “leap through the air, conjure lightning and shoot flaming arrows.”
More details on all three games can be found after the break.
Xbox One Games
Heart & Slash ($19.99)
Heart & Slash is a 3D brawler roguelike robot love story set in a world where machines are all that remains from human civilization. You play as Heart, a sentient robot fighting to escape the grip of the evil and all seeing machine QuAsSy (Quality Assurance Systems). But make no mistake, Heart & Slash is no walk in the park. Every death is permanent and means a new randomly-generated level for you to start over with a different set of weapons and items you can use, new enemies to fight, and secrets to explore.
Monochroma is a cinematic puzzle platformer that takes place in an industrial-alchemic setting. It’s about being a child, having a little brother, growing up, falling down and solving some other puzzles. Monochroma offers a deeply visual, intellectual, and emotional experience. The game tells it story without using any written or spoken words. It has black and white graphics only colored with red.
Kung-Fu For Kinect ($19.99)
Step inside the game and turn yourself into a kung-fu hero! Use your own moves to punch and kick your way through comic-book villains, leap through the air, conjure lightning and shoot flaming arrows! This game is suitable for all ages, shapes and sizes, and may result in getting seriously fit. The game includes a story mode with 22 levels, nine replayable challenges for daily fun, and a special mode for staging your own finishing moves.
