Just two new games in our price bracket releasing this Friday. First we have Magical Brickout from Cunning Force Games which offers a new twist on the beloved classic formula. Instead of moving a small paddle back and forth across the screen you are able to rotate the bricks in a circular fashion as you frantically try to keep the ball in the play area. Combined with a fantasy theme and beautifully hand painted graphics, casual and hardcore gamers should be entertained for hours. Pick it up here for $9.99
Also releasing today is Eventide 3: Legacy of Legends, another hidden objects adventure from Artifex Mundi. Step into the shoes of Mary Gilbert, world renowned botanist and guardian of Fern Flower, to once again explore the mythical realm of Slavic fables. You can pick it up here for $11.99 for the next 11 days or $14.99 thereafter. The game is also available to buy as part of the Eventide Collection which includes the first two installments in the series for $35.99.
Finally, whilst not strictly a Friday release since it actually hit the store yesterday, Next Up Hero is now available to download. Developed by Digital Continue and published by Aspyr, the game is a dungeon crawler featuring hand-drawn heroes that hack, slash, bongo-drum, boomerang, and jet their way through Ventures. Choose your Hero and start rolling dungeons, gearing out, and maxing your stats. The game also features co-op and is Mixer enabled whereby spectators can control the echo army, helping the hero survive the floor, or buff the Dirge enemies, slowing and freezing the player. The game is free for Game Pass subscribers or you can buy it here for $19.99.
