Yar’s Revenge Info

Price point: 800 Microsoft Points or $10.
Release date: April 13th on XBLA & PC (via Steam).

Description: “Yar’s Revenge is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of a multi-limbed warrior tasked with conquering an oppressive force. From a mostly third-person perspective, in this on-rails shooter, players fly through caverns, forests, and industrial areas while using colorful missiles and energy bursts to defeat insect-like creatures. Yes, the battle between the Yar and Qotile is still here and weapons are a must in any old galactic disagreement. So fans of the classic Atari 2600 game will be excited to hear that the Zorlon Cannon returns in this online/downloadable new version of Yars’ Revenge. The game includes local co-op for two players.”
