An endless wave of fun and repetition.
Twin stick shooters have become synonymous with Xbox Live Arcade ever since the inception of the service. When the Xbox 360 launched Geometry Wars emerged onto the scene and created a following that has lasted throughout the console's lifecycle. There is rarely a month that goes by that we are not greeted by yet another mindlessly addictive shooter and PowerUp Forever brings yet a different concept to the mix. Like the name implies Namco Bandai's latest XBLA offering delivers an endless stream of enemies and levels for a game that lasts only as long as you can manage to stay alive. The end result is a unique, albeit somewhat flawed take on the genre.
