Antipole (Second Chance with the Chick)

UPDATE: Antipole is now 80 Microsoft Points.

Hey, remember my review for Antipole?  Remember how I said it had slowdown?  They patched it.  It doesn’t anymore.  It’s now even more awesome.  You should buy it.

Still no explanation why the protagonist looks like Michael Jackson ran into a "Fur Is Murder" rally.

On a side note, I played the Nintendo DSiWare version as well.  It’s the same game, but it’s portable.  It’s also quite awesome.  I would rather play a game like this on a television screen, so the XBLIG version is the one to get.  It’s 400 Microsoft Points, and that can be a bit of a tough sell.  But if you’re looking for a truly unique platformer, this is the way to go.  It’s better than either of the Bionic Commando remakes that hit the scene, and hell, I actually liked it more than Castlevania: Harmony of Despair or Hard Corps: Uprising.  It’s not as polished as a big studio release, but it’s better designed than most, and for that reason it deserves your dollars.  Original games like Antipole remind me of why I started Indie Gamer Chick in the first place.  And now I look forward to the sequel to this game that will be set on a Grand-Prix circuit.  AntiPole Position is coming soon.

Antipole was developed by Saturnine Games

400 Microsoft Points noted that the last line was a joke in the making of this review.
