The very nice Mutant Storm Reloaded was one of the Xbox Live Arcade launch titles, but was a bit in the shadow by the awesome Geometry Wars. The developers at PomPom Games still must have been satisfied with the sales since they are now working on a sequel exclusively for 360. First screens inside.

great - i loved the original

About the original, I've always wondered.. Does it support local co-op, and is it proper long/challenging?

The info on the arcade page is deliciously confusing. It says singleplayer but once in the game it's clearly a 2 player game aswell.

What type of game is this, looks confuseing.

Looks really nice. MS really need to start getting these Arcade games out. With a few releases a month they would help get over the summer drought.

instead of just rooms, it's now more of a scroller. WILL be good!

Yes, the 2 player mode is local co-op. Mutant Storm Empire is supposed to add Live co-op as well.

MSR starts off very easy, but as you progress it becomes insanely challenging. Not many people can get all 12 achievements. There are 89 unique levels, and a difficulty setting that ramps up the longer you survive. And in true arcade style, you can just keep on playing until you run out of lives.

Kinda like Smash TV, only better.

for those that are wondering what kinda game this is, it's very similar to geometry wars, but a lot faster and with crazy monster type things and such... it has co-op... which is so awesomely fun. The first was the first game I bought on live arcade and when I play it now I still enjoy it.. plus it's super hard at the higher levels which means the game lasts you forever without running out of content.

Thanks Vaelwynd, I'll pick this up for sure then. I end up playing most co-op locally for some reason.

Looks good, always room in my life for a scrolling shooter.

Mutant Storm was awesome, (better than geometry wars imo).
Looking forward to this sequel.

I argee "was a bit in the shadow by the awesome Geometry Wars" fills me with ire. Mutant Storm Reloaded is such a better game then Geo Wars that didnt get much attention. I cannot wait for this new title to come out. It looks amazing.
Commented on 2006-06-29 19:45:28
Not my cup of tea, rather have a new geometry wars.
Commented on 2006-06-29 20:11:09
this looks very cool!!
Commented on 2006-06-29 21:43:54
Pompom did say that those screens are a little old and some of the mutant designs have already changed.

Personally, I think I'd have to see it in motion before deciding if I like the new style better or not. The environments are certainly more interesting though. And I suspect each "world" will have a unique style, which should be nice.
Commented on 2006-06-29 22:04:54
Definitely an improvement, but don't the stages look smaller than the original?
Commented on 2006-06-29 22:08:54
They're actually bigger. If they appear smaller it's because you're not seeing the whole thing. Each room is going to be bigger than just one screen so you'll have to scroll around more to see it all.

Btw, my last post was in response to somebody (FireWire?) but that post disappeared as soon as I replied. Weird.
Commented on 2006-06-29 22:44:57
Now all they need is CONTRA to come out. I Cant wait.

Mutant Storm Reloaded costs 800 points ($10 in the US). No price yet for MSE but it will probably be about the same. Once you buy it you can play it all you want. Are you new to Xbox Live Arcade? You can buy points through Xbox Live, or at the store on a card. Then you just go to Xbox Live Arcade in the dashboard and use the points to buy the games.

Erm... you can do that? That's almost too simple. And here I was thinking my post ate yours or something.

    Sdarts Oh, yeah, I just remembered. Papers, Please does something similar as well. Puts you in an unconfortable position. (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Spec Ops: The Line does something similar, and I wish more games put you on that spot. Try to make you think: "WTF do I do?" and etc. (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Decisions like that. If the game's story is really good, you actually feel the weight of them and how there's no "win" choice, just worse and even worse choices. Some books and movies try to convey it (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @bleachedsmiles: Just hypothetical and nothing to do with the game: Do you blow a school full of children where a terrorist is hiding? Or let him go free to potentially kill thousands more innocents? (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @bleachedsmiles: I can't mention the scene in question without spoiling, but one option was almost impossible and the other was "easy" to do, but the "easy" one was something "monstrous". So values. (3 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: I don't know. The shooting felt off. It had mouse acceleration, which I hate. Cover wasn't fluid. But I loved the story. I also couldn't stand the voice of Drake in that setting. (3 Hours ago)
  • digi_matrix
    digi_matrix I love when story and gameplay match, and most of it is told in-game than just cutscenes. Remedy's games are also great at that. (3 Hours ago)
