Xbox Live Arcade Update – Narco Terror, Cloudberry Kingdom

xbla logo
Finally, a solid new pair of Xbox Live Arcade releases worth checking out this Wednesday.

For those looking for a side-scrolling platformer (or a difficult one at least), Cloudberry Kingdom is ready to go. It’s been a while since a notable twin-stick shooter was released, so Narco Terror should fill that void nicely.

More info for both below.

Narco Terror (800 Microsoft Points)
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. 1-2 players drop in/out, local and online.

Cloudberry Kingdom (800 Microsoft Points)
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?
