Another original game coming to XBLA: RoboBlitz

Microsoft is cracking the whip and bringing us even more original content to Xbox Live Arcade. Last week it was Small Arms, and this Wednesday, RoboBlitz will be up for grabs. From the press release:

Experience the power of the Unreal Engine 3 for the first time in an Xbox Live Arcade game in “RoboBlitz,” this week’s Xbox Live Arcade Wednesday’s release. This independently developed breakthrough game will be available for download on Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360 beginning Wednesday, December 6, after 0800 GMT (1:00 a.m. PST).

Independent developer Naked Sky Entertainment created “RoboBlitz” using the latest in game technology to deliver an innovative, high definition experience. “RoboBlitz” is a fast-paced, 3D action game with unique physics, inventive gizmos, creative weapons, and robotic characters. Players take on the role of Blitz, a multi-talented robot who must activate an aging space cannon to save his world from a band of maladjusted space pirates. Set in seven distinct environments, RoboBlitz features 19 levels of puzzle-solving and high-intensity action.

Watch the above video and decide whether or not the game is worth $15. RoboBlitz uses the same engine as Gears of War, so you know the graphics are good. The gameplay? It looks a little questionable. But, that’s the beauty of Xbox Live — you can try before you buy.
