Securing Web Applications Made Simple and Scalable

Shadow Complex

RH Numbers

This popular platform adventure game has been around for a couple of years now and is widely rated as one of the best Xbox Live downloads available.

Players take control of protagonist Jason Flemming, as he explores underground caverns in search of his missing girlfriend. Flemming is rewarded with experience points as he completes objectives and defeats enemies, culminating in traditional attribute-boosting level-ups.

While the player moves in a two dimension side-scroll style, weapons are aimed in 3D and enemies will attack from any angle. Graphics are seriously awesome, while the addictive and thrilling gameplay raises the bar further.

'Splosion Man

RH Numbers

Twisted Pixel's action platformer exploded on the scene a couple of years ago to high acclaim. If you haven't had a go yet, you really are missing out on a gem.

In each level, our combustable character – the result of a science experiment gone wrong – escapes the lab in which he was created by tackling puzzles, traps and enemies, often exploding up to three times in quick succession to do so.

There are fifty levels to complete, three bosses and an addictive multiplayer mode that sees four players do battle over an additional 50 co-op levels. If all that isn't enough for you, the sequel, Ms. 'Sploson Man, was released earlier this year too. There's no shortage of big bangs for your buck here.
