Cave's latest XBLA title is a pleasant surprise


11:00 PM on 02.20.2011



Cave has announced its next Xbox Live Arcade game, and it's not a re-release of a classic shoot-'em-up. Heck, it's not even a new shmup. Instead, the company is putting out a platformer by the name of Nin2-Jump. Rolls off the tongue there, huh?

Most notably, the game captures the essence of shadow puppetry. In terms of mechanics, Nin2-Jump seems fairly straightforward -- which, to me, works fine in conjunction with the unusual premise.

This will be one to watch for fans of leaderboards, as it delves into both time- and score-based territory in a big way. Putting the player's time directly into the HUD is certainly one way to fuel our competitive nature.

La-Mulana 2 aims to be more 'intuitive,' still hard as heck

La-Mulana was regarded by some as the hardest game ever. This isn't going to change, though Nigoro's Takami Naramura wants it to be slightly more intuitive so perhaps all those deaths don't lead to warranted frustration and ...more
