Beck got a load of free XBLA games as part of the “10 free games for you and a friend” deal new 360 owners can sign up for, and she let me have the code for Assault Heroes. I did play the demo of it when it first game out, and seem to recall that it wasn’t anything special, but not bad. I didn’t buy it was it’s not really my sort of thing.
So I played it today, and managed to reach the giant spider at the end of the first level. Who was way harder than I recall in the demo, and refused to die. He’s got three energy bars, and I managed to get them all to about half-way, but no matter how much i shot and bombed him, half0way was where they stayed. Bah.
