Games With Gold Goes Retro
It should come as no surprise that Xbox is saving all of its high-profile releases for Game Pass these days, but you can still glean some fun out of the monthly Games with Gold lineup.
Games with Gold has a distinctly retro flavour this January. The Xbox One titles bring a 16-bit aesthetic, whilst the Xbox 360 games are modernised versions of classic arcade games.
- NeuroVoider ($13.99 ERP): Available January 1 to 31
- Aground ($14.99 ERP): Available January 16 to February 15
- Radiant Silvergun ($14.99 ERP): Available January 1 to 15
- Space Invaders Infinity Gene ($9.99 ERP): Available January 16 to 31
Set in a cybernetic world and featuring an original soundtrack from cyberpunk artist, Dan Terminus, battle through hordes of vigilante robots using endless combinations of nuclear-powered weapons. Play co-op with up to four of your friends or rampage alone in this hack ’n’ slash twin-stick shooter RPG.
For humanity to survive and reach the stars, you’ll need to craft and build. Whether unlocking new technology, raising dragons, or launching into space, the sky is literally not the limit. Recover what was lost and rebuild everything!
Restored by Treasure, the legendary vertical-shooter returns with the same shoot ‘em up gameplay which made the original arcade version so famous. New additions, such as the “Ikaruga-style” shooting mode help elevate the fun in this fantastic shooter.
Space Invaders Infinity Gene
The game that defined video games for generations is back with a new twist. Play a total of 143 stages which evolve in both look and feel the more you play. Unlock new stages, new power ups, and new features, all to imaginatively stunning visuals.
It can be argued this is not the best lineup we’ve ever had, but I’ll admit to not having tried any of these games before. If they look like your preferred genre, download them and have yourself some retro fun. Not a fan of these games? Why not subscribe to Game Pass and check out some of the huge collection of outstanding titles available on Xbox’s flagship service!
