Novadrome up on Xbox Live Arcade

Novadrome up on Xbox Live Arcade

Stainless Games had the honour to be this week's Xbox Live Arcade hosts, releasing their Carmageddon-like Novadrome for 800p. For you that have the console on repair, or just don't want to spend your precious bandwith on the demo, here are some images from the game.

The game looks fun, but after playing it it wasn't that fun anymore.

Didn't like it. Felt like a game in the alpha stage of development.

I see. I haven't played it. Just pointing out the fact that there's a reason for the quote that has nothing to do with gameplay. Carmageddon was all about running people over and the car physics. I would hope it at least has the car physics down?

I didn't think the physics were anything special. At least they could have gotten that right. And for as simple as the graphics are, I'd expect 60fps. Nope.

Try it out though, it's free.

Er, I know who it is made by. This doesn't change the fact that the game plays nothing nor looks nothing like carmageddon does.
