You know what the Xbox 360 needs? More homages to classic Nintendo titles.
Yeah, there's Banjo Kazooie, but... look, it has a fanbase, but I wouldn't call it classic. Not classic like Pilotwings, which is what Haiku Interactive's AvaGlide basically is, only on the Xbox Live Indie Games channel.
For a game that's only 80 MSP (USD$1), it looks pretty damn good. You control your avatar through four different game modes across four different levels, including free flight, ring rush (flying through rings) and delivery dash, which involves dropping stuff onto targets on the ground.
If that last part is anything like the gliding sections in Super Monkey Ball, that's my $US1 right there. It should be out "in the next few weeks", according to 4 colour Rebellion.
Kotaku AU Note: Hey, Microsoft, if you're reading this, please launch the Xbox Live Indie Games channel in Australia. Thanks for listening. (Sigh...)
