Ben Ward, Community and Web lead at Bizarre Creations, has revealed the developer originally wanted the cult classic Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved to be given away free on Xbox Live Arcade as "a gift to hardcore gamers".
Wow, considering how well it's sold, it's a good thing Bizarre Creations decided to charge for it. Must have brought in a nice amount of cash.
I still bought the game, its still one of the best games to buy on the Xbox Live arcade. Most of the other games are really crappy.
I still play it when I have 5 or 10 minutes to blow.
At 400pts, this is the best value on XBLA. Unlike some games where you hit a brick wall in difficulty, this game ramps up with learned skill. Just when you think you can't get any higher, you break your personal best. Superb!
