Hypership out of control is a retro 8bit graphic 2d shooter with a unique twist. Your spaceship had some serious issues, and now your throttle is stuck, the brakes are broken. The only things keeping you from sheer disaster are the ships guns, and steering control. Do you have what it takes to get your speeding ship from becoming a splatter mark on the side of some asteroid, or something bigger and worse, like space bees!
Fluid was released on XBLIG on October 22, 2010 for 80 Microsoft Points.
Fluid is a game that boggles the mind, and will keep you occupied for hours. I call is a 2D puzzle racer, because the object of the game is to find the quickest line around the level without getting killed in the process. I was calling it a 2D version of Super Meat Boy!

Explosionade, while causing a stir within the XBLIG developers community, is another release from Mommy’s Best Games. See if I keep reviewing Mommy’s Best Games, or schmups, you are going to start things that I either A. work for Mommy’s Best Games (I don’t) and B. Play nothing but schmups. Though, I am playing this XBLIG title until my xbox screams for me to stop, I might as well tell you why it’s worth the 80 Microsoft Points ($1).
All your friends are storming the Horronym Fortress but Colonel Bouche left you to guard the supply depot.

Shoot 1Up is an XBLIG title by Mommy’s Best Games that I think many people might have missed, because it is an XBLIG title. Mommy’s Best Games are known for their retro style sticking more to 2D style games.

Explosionade, developed by Mommy’s Best Games, has been delayed once more after a previous delay for a near release bug. However, this time the delay doesn’t arise from their internal code glitches or bugs, rather more Xbox Live Marketplace issues. Nathan Fouls, the studio head of Mommy’s Best Games, has posted on the studio’s development log that the Top Downloads portion of Xbox Live Marketplace can be “stuck for days, sometimes over a week.” Fouls claims that their games could lose a potential revenue boost from this feature and it hurts the players as well. By not updating accurately, many gamers may miss popular titles and think that nothing currently popular is worthwhile. Explosionade has been delayed indefinitely until Microsoft has responded to this issue. Quite a shame as the game was looking quite good and fun, but now we may never get it or at least have to wait a while longer.
