XBLA Today: Cloudberry Kingdom, Narco Terror


If you paid attention to yesterday’s PlayStation Store update, you should be familiar with today’s new Xbox Live Arcade offerings. First up is Pwnee Studios and their procedurally generated platformer, Cloudberry Kingdom:

Unhappily ever after. That’s how it starts. The Orb resurfaces and the classic characters return. Kobbler with his mania, Princess with her endless boredom. It’s only a matter of time before Bob, our hero, shows up to restore order back to madness. Three powers struggle for victory and the fate of Cloudberry Kingdom hangs in the balance. What will become of the retired hero, Bob? Will saving Princess one last time win her love? Could true love ever stop Kobbler and the power of the Orb?

Next we have Narco Terror, a twin-stick shooter from Deep Silver:

Dishing out justice, one grenade at a time! Narco Terror combines the good of the old and the amazing of the new in an action-packed twin-stick shooter about an over-the-top one-man war against a drug cartel. In true arcade-style, it is filled with unlimited ammo, ear-splitting grenades, huge explosions, massive tanks, armed helicopters and fast planes.

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