200 MP

This game gets my highest recommendation. If you like platformers/puzzlers you'll love this. Try the Demo.

I'll start with a oldie (on the service) but a goodie, Weapon of Choice was my first purchase on Community Games, along with Carnivale Showtime its one of the most polished games on the service that looks & plays better than a heap on XBLA games.

I've spent a lot of time with it, I love the graphic style which reminds me of the old Amiga action platformer/shooters I used to play as a kid.

It's as hard as contra to me and I really need to get further in the game but I have a tonne of fun with the unique parts in the game, the range of characters, the control of the gun along with its power boost, the little robot legs that let you climb and the fact you can carry your last incarnation when you died.

Defiantly one where I would suggest everyone tries out the demo here on GAF, should be us a few people's alleys.



yeah for 200 points I picked up Johnny Platformer too.

Its a really nice 2D stage based puzzle platformer ripped right from DS home-brew and plonked on Community Games.

Again not a one I managed to finished but I spent a couple of hours on it till the stages got frustrating and left it. Really solid though the graphics are really basic but it gives it a little charm along with the cute little biscuit and tea theme.

The images link to demo download links:


Score Attack Puzzle-Platformer


Simple, indie PC-style platformer


Sort of a more puzzle-y version of Soul Bubbles.


Like Donkey Kong: King of Swing or Clu Clu Land, a peg-based puzzle platformer. Extremely high production values.


Like Sokoban mixed with Chip's Challenge mixed with others games. Truly eclectic.


Hot Shots Golf-esque golf game, features course editor.


Platformer that seems inspired by Braid, great art style.


Indie-style vertical platformer.


Reflex-based score attack game, bounce off objects to get to the top of the screen. Like that one flash game.


Dig down into cave, get resources, return to surface, sell resources, buy better equipment, repeat. Like that one flash game.


2d Tony Hawk meets nerd math.


Amiga-style platform shooter.


Really clunky and somewhat racist platformer is strangely greater than the sum of its parts.


Addictive word-based arcade puzzle game.

I haven't had the chance to really 'dig deep' (Boom Boom!) into Miner Dig Deep but the praise it got from everyone who's played it for a while and another 200point game I just plopped the points right down.

The artstyle is simple but clean and appealing and along with the simple but unravelling gameplay much like A Kingdom for Keflings which it sucking you in and getting deeper it seems a perfect fit to what I'm looking for on community games.

I think the price and the clean art may also have had an impact on people trying it as with these games people tend to judge first with their eyes then get into controls and gameplay which this has.
Loved the ad for this someone did in the creating advertising thread on gaf, tink tink!

Just Puzzles: Word Soup
Just Arcadey Games: Miner Dig Deep
Overall: Carnivale Showtime or Miner Dig Deep

Honestly, my recommendation would be that people click all the links, which go to marketplace.xbox.com download links. From there, a one-click process will add the demo of the game to your Xbox 360 download queue. That way, you can download them all while you're away from your 360, and when you get home spend 5 or 10 minutes with each! :D

This is my pruned down list. Instead of including everything I thought people should try, this includes everything I think people should buy. If someone asked for XBLA recommendations, I wouldn't want people to reply "Braid" "Castle Crashers" "SSF2THDR". There are clearly at least a dozen awesome games on the service, so I'd hope people would cast a wide net with their recommendations.

But don't take my word for it! XNPlay does reviews of XNA games. They have a RECOMMENDED category. Check that out. XNARoundup is a regular iTunes podcast that highlights only the cream of the crop. These are both great tools.

I've said it in another thread tonight but I'll just repeat it here, Miner Dig Deep is one of the 5 best games I've played so far this year.

Here's a brief review/look at the game, although he doesn't really go into much detail outside of the basics, perhaps not wanting to spoil anything: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-R_w8UYB_A

It's 200 points, which is what in Microsoft Moon Money, $2.50? The price of a Starbucks coffee or Slurpee for a game you could probably play for over 20 hours. I'm not even sure how far down the mine goes.

The thread title should read "GAF Recommends" =)

I recommend Supercow and Carneyvale: Showtime to anyone. I also like Johnny Platform a lot. Miner Dig Deep is a buy! Smashell and Galax-e-mail are very good as well, if you like those kinds of games. Give the trials a shot and see what you think.

I played the trial of Tomato Blaster last night as well and I was impressed by the gameplay...it's better than it looks.

It's good to see so many games being mentioned in a thread like this; hopefully this will convince some people that the Community Games channel is not short on quality.



Snake360 was already mentioned so I don't feel quite as bad plugging the game I developed =) But just in case it still seems a bit suspect, I'm going to let some of my players do the plugging for me.

"I've got to say that for someone who enjoys competing on online scoreboards this game is a godsend, one of the best I've played including big-company games on disc and XBLA."
"It's obvious that many hours went into designing all those levels."
"In my opinion this is one of the few games I've ever played with absolutely perfect control. Also I think the scoring system and the options for slow people and the way levels and modes unlock are top-notch."

Post by mrofir on Tue Dec 30, 2008 4:23 pm
"congratulations on putting together such a solid package. A game like snake is simple enough that it demands absolutely perfect execution, especially when it comes to control -- one nagging flaw and the whole experience would be hollow, and internet rankings meaningless. I took a chance downloading this game and it was worth it. I own a decent collection of games.. COD4, Saints Row 2, sports games (madden et al), and many arcade games. In the past few weeks Snake has probably taken up the majority of my xbox time."

What we need to have is an OP that tallies all the recommendations from each poster into a list that is ranked by votes. So if I post my list of recommendations, each game gets a vote. This is tallied in the OP occasionally and creates an easy to see/read "Top Ten" of CGs as recommended by GAF.

And it needs to lead at the top with just the list. No screenshots or descriptions. That makes the OP too busy and lazy people may just back out when faced with that wall.

That would be good for a top ten but this is just a thread to recommend good games to check out. The people looking can see what's popular

I didn't want to put stuff into the op so people could have there say on the few games they like and I hate list threads so this was intended to be where you could list a good game and a quick description so people know what they could check out.

The thread is different to the XNA thread as this is just for recommendations the XNA thread has a bunch of stuff in it.


Guys please back up your recommendations with reasons why?

edit: Gowans, you're sentiment is fine, but the problem is that it will quickly get disorganized and difficult to navigate for quick recommendations, and the only people using it will be the same people discussing games in the XNA thread.

In other words - you haven't solved the only reason why the original XNA thread is not useful, and we're basically back to square one.

The reason most of those list threads are stupid is because they basically just advertise games that everyone already knows exist, mostly just so platform cheerleaders can feel good about themselves.

The reason a list is appropriate here is because the majority of the board has no idea which community games to check out. That's this thread's primary purpose, to help separate out the good recommendations for them. Having them all easily findeable in the OP is the most effective way to do that.

Also, I recommend adding Solar to the list of recommendations......

Another vote for Miner Dig Deep. It's kind of a spacey-outy game I've been watching my roommate play in down time. Nothing too complex, and a lot of potential that is largely unexplored, but definitely worth 2.50.

GAF recommends Gowans gets a dictionary.

And I strongly recommend Carneyvale, it's pretty short, but it's polished as hell, and the presentation is better than 99% of XBLA games. Really simple, but adds new dynamics just at the right times to aid progression.

I completely disagree. Why limit this to one short list? If I combine my experience from what I've seen and played with what I've heard, then as far as I know, every game mentioned on this page so far is good. The point of this was to cut the crap and point out the good, and so far, this thread is doing a fine job of that.

Lots of good retail/XBLA games come out every year and none of us have time for all of them. We simply figure out which ones we want. Random folks can take a look at this list, figure out what sounds most interesting to them, then try or buy without fear that their money will be wasted.

Did you know that once you buy a game you always own it? So, if you need to delete one to make room for another you can always go back and download it again if you want to play it again. I'm not trying to be condescending - I recently discovered this and I was so excited about it. :) It isn't as great as a bigger HD, but it helped me out TONS.

Started a new Miner Dig Deep save, thanks to think topic. I hadn't played it in a while. This game is like CRACK. The "into the mine, out of the mine" gameplay leads to an INCREDIBLY STRONG "OK, just one more go..." gameplay loop. I had "one more go" like 10 times before finally managing to turn it off and get back to work.

- Create a US XBL account
- Purchase US Microsoft Points from www.maximuscards.com (by using a credit card through Google Checkout or just PayPal)
- Reedem the code (you get after buying) with your US XBL account
- Download (and buy) the games with your US XBL account

And, since this is the recommendation thread, here's my picks:

* bricks4ever - Good and cheap (200 pts) Arkanoid clone
* CarneyVale Showtime - Extremely polished (even more so than most XBLA games), and fun too
* Easy Golf - I bought this after the price cut (to 400 pts); and it's much better than the XBLA golf game (although I hate the robot avatar)
* Miner Dig Deep - Has old school gameplay (and graphics), but it's very addictive in that you just want to find more gems in order to upgrade your inventory (and ultra cheap at 200 pts)
* Solar - Relaxing game where you control a star that tries to find planets to orbit you (also just 200 pts)
* TV Calibration - Best $2.50 I've spent on the service, since it figured out that my HDTV's display image was aligned too much to the left (and it also has a good color calibration feature)

I just bought this, about half way through. As a video game, it is horrible. The controls are super stiff, the roll randomly works and the collision detection is wretched. Still, there is something about it that draws me in, I've never seen a concept like this in a game before. Basically, you are a woman in a coma and are playing through her dreams. Each level is preceded by a bit of text setting the stage and the enemies represent her various fears and such. Each enemy you kill lights the screen up a bit and if the screen goes too dark, you die, so you need to keep her brain running.

I bought that calibration tool. My TV is a 720p native TV running in 720p mode.


Is it at all useful to see how much of a 1080p image displays on my screen?

Some great suggestions so far. I REALLY really hope MS lets future games throw in 100 achievement points. Reason being is that it would really help sales for some of these very solid games.
