Thunderbolt | Space Ark Hands-On Preview

Strawdog Studios love arcade games. From the compulsive penny machines that line the piers of Britain to the punishingly fierce gameplay of classics such as Robotron 2084 and Centpede, the team share a fondness for all things arcade. Their last game, Geon, a downloadable PSN puzzle title that featured a cube, a grid and lots of lines, enjoyed a comfortable amount of success, and soon reached the shores of Xbox Live Arcade, with the updated Geon: Emotions. While Geon fit the genre of arcade puzzler, its influences were a little less obvious, and the team felt they wanted a game with characters and personality. They wanted a game that harked back to the fiendishly addictive arcade cabinets, a game with colour, a game you played for fun, and a game you played for the high scores. They certainly found it with Space Ark. (Space Ark, Xbox 360)
