Faery: Legends of Avalon flutters onto XBLA

Microsoft Store Update: Role-playing game from Focus Home Interactive hits download space next to The UnderGarden and Guwange.


No Caption Provided Last month, Microsoft served up a bountiful Game Feast, but since that digital cornucopia ended, the Xbox Live Arcade hasn't released much in the way of prominence. That theme continues this week.

Leading the charge this week is Faery: Legends of Avalon (1,200 MS points, or $15). From publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Spiders, the fantasy role-playing game is now available to download on XBLA. The title lets gamers choose to play as either an elf or a fairy and tasks them with saving the world from "inevitable disappearance." Players will encounter numerous and varied foes along their journey and will also team up with characters whose skills are unique and ultimately helpful in the effort to save the planet.

Also released this week was The UnderGarden (800 MS points, or $10). From Vitamin G Studios, the physics-based puzzle title was published by Atari and sees players controlling a petite creature inside caverns. The title sports 14 unique levels upon which players will face a number of puzzle-solving tasks.

The last XBLA title to arrive this week was Guwange (800 MS points, or $10). An action game set during the Muromachi age in Japan, the title sports multiple game modes like Score Attack and co-op, where players can fight together over Xbox Live. The title is based on the arcade game of the same name that was released in 1999.
