Microsoft continues its Xbox Live Arcade Wednesdays program this week with Sierra Online's Assault Heroes. The game, developed by Wanako Studios, will be available at 1 a.m. on Wednesday for 800 points ($10).

Assault Heroes is an arcade-style, top-down-perspective shooter in which gamers steer heavily armed 4x4s, drive souped-up motorboats, or go at it on foot against wave after wave of enemies. Armed with weapons such as flamethrowers, grenades, and flak cannons, players can take on the challenge alone or play cooperatively with a friend online or offline.

Assault Heroes is rated T for Teen. For more information, read GameSpot's preview.
