The stages in the new trailer are set in the game’s third area, known as “The Moorsky.”
XBLA Fans was able to go hands-on with Fenix Rage at Pax East 2014 prior to it being announced as an ID@Xbox title. The game played not unlike a version of Super Meat Boy starring Sonic the Hedgehog. Green Lava is promising gamers a “frenetically paced 2D action platformer” that forces them to navigate their way through hundreds of levels featuring dangerous mazes.

8bits Fanatics’ deathtrap of a platformer, 1001 Spikes, will be releasing for Xbox One on June 10, publisher Nicalis has announced.
The intentionally brutally challenging sidescroller is named for the 1001 lives it allocates to players on their quest to survive the multitude of spikes, pits, enemies and other hazards. The game’s quest sends players after the lost treasures of Ukampa in South America and main character Aban Hawkins’ estranged father Jim Hawkins.
The game originally debuted as Aban Hawkins & the 100 Spikes on the Xbox Live Indie Games store in 2011. 1001 Spikes now features a complete campaign with a story, a world map, multiple playable characters — including some borrowed from other games like Bit.Trip Runner‘s Commander Video — and several multiplayer modes. As the launch trailer above shows, the game’s sights and sounds recall the glory days of 1980s platformers.
1001 Spikes released this past Tuesday for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, Mac, PC, 3DS and Wii U.
Two of the most respected curators of others intellectual property, Zen Studios and Telltale, have come together to bring Telltales’ Game of the Year winning The Walking Dead experience to pinball. Based around the events of Telltales’ Walking Dead Season One, players will have a chance to relive the story of Lee and Clementine in various settings, such as, Clementine’s tree house and the streets of Savannah. “Zen Studios is a huge admirer of Telltale Games, and we truly cherish the opportunity to work with such amazing visionaries,” said Mel Kirk, Vice President of Publishing at Zen Studios. “Working with Telltale’s The Walking Dead is a hallmark moment as we continue our quest to create the most memorable and authentic pinball experiences.”
The new table tries to incorporate choices in a similar way to The Walking Dead with the goal of making a memorable experience for players. “Zen knocked it out of the park with their interpretation Telltale’s first season of The Walking Dead as a pinball table,” said Steve Allison, SVP of Publishing at Telltale Games. “Players once again get to step into the shoes of Lee Everett and protect Clementine as all the major events of season one play a role in the first ever pinball game that features choice and consequence gameplay.”
The game will be playable at E3 and our own Kyle Aufderheide will be sure to give it a spin. The game should release later this summer. This will be the second major zombie franchise with which Zen has worked having previously released Plants vs Zombies Pinball.
