Aussie emulation mash-up January 13
There's nothing like a zombie invasion to kick-start 2012!
This week sees the release of the survival horror game AMY from French developer VectorCell. The zombie apocalypse is no place for a child, and AMY sees players escorting an 8-year-old autistic girl around a dangerous town full of zombies and military personnel. All is not as it seems, though, as the child's guardian is infected with the virus, which forces players to manage the infection. If you're not afraid of a few zombies, or some bad reviews, then AMY is available for download now on both the PlayStation Network Store and Xbox Live Arcade.
The other big release this week is Choplifter HD, a remake of the classic Apple II game from 1982. This one is a side-scrolling flying game where players have to navigate their way into a hot zone and rescue people from various dangerous situations. Along the way, players will have to manage their fuel consumption and ensure that the chopper flies smoothly, with some comparing it to a flying equivalent of Trials HD. While the game is slated for release on the PSN at some point in the not too distant future, it's only available on XBLA in Australia for now.
While Choplifter HD wraps it up for XBLA this week, the PSN still has a few tricks up its sleeve in the form of kid's platformer Zack Zero, demos for the upcoming Asura's Wrath and Final Fantasy XIII-2, and more.
Unfortunately, all is quiet on the Nintendo front, so there are no new games available across the entire library of Nintendo's digital platforms.
