Aces of the Galaxy

3-2-1 blast off! Launch yourself into the intense space-shooter Aces of the Galaxy™, a non-stop, old-school arcade thrill-ride for the twenty-first century and beyond. Utilize an impressive arsenal of upgradeable weapons including high powered missile launchers, devastating torpedoes, and the ever-reliant chain gun to annihilate the ships of the wretched Skurgian Empire. Save planet Earth cooperatively at home with a friend or join up on Xbox LIVE®.

  • Co-op multiplayer: Fun multiplayer mode allows you to play cooperatively, both locally and online over Xbox LIVE.
  • Unique temporal shift feature: Use the temporal shift to slow down the hordes of enemies and prepare yourself for the battle.
  • Retro action, next-gen gameplay: Classic retro-arcade shooter action mixes with stunning next-generation visuals to bring the action up close and personal.


Roogoo updates the square peg in a round hole premise to a whole new level. Help the Roogoo defeat their enemies, the evil Meemoo, in Roogoo, a new and innovative action-based puzzler. Players line up multiple platforms on different levels to allow shaped blocks to pass through and once enough of them stack up, that particular shape closes off. A simple premise becomes more complicated as Meemoos begin to obstruct players’ paths, and butterflies attempt to steal blocks away. Players must swivel, roll, and boost their way through 45 puzzle-filled levels alone or with up to four friends in cooperative party mode play. For those with a more competitive spirit, Roogoo offers a two-player multiplayer mode over Xbox LIVE® where players battle to solve the same puzzle and can build up attacks to thwart their competitors’ efforts.

  • New puzzle mechanic: Roogoo features unique 3-D puzzle mechanics where players guide shaped blocks through rotating disks in order to bring them to the ground for high scores while defeating the evil Meemoo.
  • Gameplay: Race through 45 progressive action-based puzzle-filled levels.
  • Multiplayer mode: The game features robust head-to-head two-player split screen competition over Xbox LIVE for a seriously fun race mode.
  • Attack meter: Race to build up your Attack Meter and place enemy Meemoos on your opponents’ disks to give you that extra edge to knock out your competition.
  • Local party play: Play with one to four players in one game to complete any level. Work as a team and as an individual to get the best score.
