Black Knight Sword Review: Sadistic + Fantastic = Sadistastic


When playing, or in this case, reviewing, a Grasshopper/Suda 51 game, one must not only be prepared to go down the rabbit hole into Weirdville, but also locate the rabbit hole within the rabbit hole to enter an even more bizarre world. Multiple times during a playthough, you’ll find yourself saying, “What the hell is going on here?” Luckily, though, you’re smiling the entire time.

XBLA Today: Black Knight Sword, American Mensa Academy


We’ve got two new additions to the Xbox Live Arcade today. First up is the Suda 51-produced platformer, Black Knight Sword:

From the twisted and brilliant mind of Suda 51 comes Black Knight Sword, a platforming adventure with an unprecedented visual style. In this fresh take on the classic fairy tale, The Black Knight treks through a dark and mysterious world filled with whimsical creatures to kill the dark princess and ending her reign of terror. A throwback to classic platformers, Black Knight Sword evokes simple yet addictive and challenging gameplay with an overall aesthetic unlike anything released to date.

Also available this week is the braining training game American Mensa Academy:

Get ready to stretch your grey matter as you put yourself through more than 100 interesting and challenging puzzles designed to stretch and train your brain in key areas including logic, language, visual and more. Mensa Academy is the only brain training game backed by Mensa, the high IQ society, so for the first time you’ll be able to put all that practice into action by taking on real Mensa-style questions, like the ones you see in the Mensa IQ tests. What will your Mensa Academy score be?

Both games have been priced at 800 Microsoft Points ($10) apiece.
