It’s Friday, and that means it’s time for more end-of-the-week additions to the Xbox Games Store.
Today, Xbox One owners will be able to download Thumper, Drool’s “rhythm violence” game. Players will take control of a space beetle that hurtles down a track in a “hellish void” to battle a “maniacal giant head.” Yikes. Also available to download today is Magician Lord, a side-scrolling beat ’em up that was originally released in 1990 for the NeoGeo.
More information about both games is available right here:

Thumper is rhythm violence: classic rhythm-action, blistering speed, and brutal physicality. You are a space beetle. Brave the hellish void and confront your nemesis: a maniacal giant head. Scream down the endless track and crash through punishing obstacles with simple, airtight controls. Hurtle forward, master new moves, reach overwhelming velocities, and survive epic boss battles. Every crushing impact is interwoven with a pounding original soundtrack. To reach synesthetic bliss, you must conquer rhythm hell.
Magician Lord is a side-scrolling action game released by SNK in 1990. This fantasy action game was one of the launch titles on NeoGeo. Control the magician Elta on a journey to save the world from Gal-Agiese, who came back to life once again.
