Fun platformers are the theme this week on Xbox Live thanks to Naoki Tales, Adamant Ants 2 and Super Robot World!
Best bets this week include: Avatars on the Edge, a stunt avatar game; Naoki Tales, a cute arcade/adventure game; Orbit Crash, a beautiful monochromatic space game; Loot Fest 2, a multiplayer explorer game; and Adamant Ants 2, a game where you control ants to rescue the queen!
Below is a list of games released between May 4, 2013 and May 10, 2013. Descriptions are from the Microsoft site (so don't blame us) and the prices are all in Microsoft Points (MP). The conversion rate is currently $1.25 for 100 MP (or $10 for 800 MP) and points can be purchased either through Xbox Live, the Xbox web site or gift cards at various retail locations. Late additions will be added (so check back).
