Last week, Microsoft surprised a few gamers by offering two new games--Gyruss and 3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures--for its weekly Xbox Live Arcade Wednesdays program. The increased flow of downloadable games continues again this week, as two new titles will be on Xbox Live Marketplace this Wednesday at 2 a.m. PDT.
First up is Eets: Chowdown, which jumps over from the PC to the Xbox 360 from Klei Entertainment. The 2D puzzler features Lemmings-style gameplay as users guide Eets through hazards to each stage's exit. The Xbox 360 version features a new cooperative game mode titled Marsho Madness, which sees players working together to stop an invasion of evil marshmallows.
Also up this week is Pinball FX from Zen Studios. Up to four wannabe Tommys can become pinball wizards on three 3D pinball tables that become more challenging as the game progresses. Players can opt to use the standard Xbox 360 controller to control the flippers, or they can work out their deltoids by using the Xbox Live Vision camera and making arm gestures to bounce the ball around.
Both Eets: Chowdown and Pinball FX are rated E for Everyone and retail for 800 Microsoft Points ($10) each.
