Xbox Live Indie Game Review – Avatar Onslaught

xboxboxart I guess I’ve got to get used to the fact that developers seem to think it’s a good idea to put these little avatars into almost EVERYTHING. And this game is no exception. It’s basically Space Invaders only your view is from behind your main character looking on as the avatars advance upon you. Instead of a gun, you throw balloons at them … and they will occasionally do the same.

Now, I’ll fully admit, my aim in this game is garbage. I’m not particularly good at it (much like every other game I play) … but damn is it ever fun.

And I’ll be willing to bet once I can actually AIM correctly that fun will continue. And this is a weird one for me, because I think the avatars are just stupid. Flat out. And I feel sorry for the people who actually spend money on outfits for them.

Now, granted, the outfits would benefit a game like this because how cool would it be to have the Big Daddy from Bioshock throwing water balloons at an oncoming avatar horde. Not that I’m willing to do something like that, but still.
