The basic premise of the game is unchanged from its Xbox origins: coloured shapes fall from the sky and you have to press the B and Z buttons to rotate a series of platforms so the shapes fall through the right holes. The difficulty increases as more shapes are introduced, butterflies steal the shapes, and bad guys called Meemoos block the holes. It’s all fairly straightforward.
On paper, Rooms: The Main Building sounds about as much fun as a three-hour slideshow entitled ‘Artex – Swirly Ceilings through the Ages’. That’s because it’s based on those godawful tile-sliding puzzles where you have to rearrange a picture.
Root Beer Tapper - the latest classic to hit Xbox Live Arcade - is one of the most deviously simple games youll ever play. It seems so one-dimensional at first, but could very well end up an
Guys are always doing stupid things to get their dream girls' attention, but no one can boast more than the ambiguous hero of The Rub Rabbits!. His love-stricken chase for affection spreads across 35 short and sweet minigames, each involving an outrageous, often sexually-charged scenario. He's a man willing to fight off clanky, robotic bears, wade through swift moving rivers loaded with mutant alligators and climb frozen mountaintops for nothing more than a kiss from his silhouetted
We have to admit, we liked Rubik’s World more than we anticipated we would. The developers have created not just a very workable virtual version of the Rubik’s Cube, but seven additional puzzle games – a couple of which could stand on their own.
Have you ever thought to yourself, "Gee, I love the Ratchet & Clank games, but I wish that instead of a robot sidekick, Ratchet had magical werewolf powers?" If so, then Ruff Trigger: The Vanocore Conspiracy might be the perfect game for you. Drawing its inspiration from Ratchet 's art and play styles, Ruff Trigger is a cute (if bland) sci-fi shooter/platformer in which players control Ruff, a dog-faced interstellar bounty hunter.

If you know your rucks from your mauls and your blood bins from your scrums, youll be right at home with Electronic Arts latest tribute to footballs forebear. Whats that - you dont?

If there's anything that being kids taught us, it's that other kids can be real bastards. They're petty, they're conniving and they can turn on you in an instant. And when they've got even a little power to lord over you, you're probably in for some pain.
And when monsters are involved? All bets are off, baby.
Set in 1930 and unfolding like a cross between Silent Hill and Lord of the Flies, Rule of Rose is a bizarre, survival-horror psychodrama that tells the fractured story of Jennifer, a
Many of us here at GamesRadar are still scratching our heads at the popularity of TV shows like "Dancing with Celebrities" and "Skating with the Stars". But we'd totally tune in for "Wrestling with Porn Stars". We can't, because it obviously doesn't exist (at least, until someone from ABC reads this), but you can pretty much play it in the form of Rumble Roses XX. If you've ever looked at a Victoria's Secret catalog or gone to Hooters and thought, "You know, this would be so much cooler if
Today we'll be heaving flaming boxes of Dream of the Turtle through the living room windows of wealthy white men's homes. Mm-hmm, the homes of pundits and congressmen. Because we're revenging at everyone who has ever squealed nationally about how video games devolve America's youth into mind-fried violence-guzzlers. We're not violent.
