IonBallEX now available in the Marketplace [Xbox LIVE for Windows Phone]

We've teased about IonballEX for a little while and now you can try it yourself. Yup, IonBallEX, the first indie game gone Xbox LIVE is now available for $2.99 (and a free trial). From the app description:

"IonBallEX is a modern twist on a classic Breakout style game, featuring an XP-based progression system and end-of-level bosses that are going to push you to the extreme, all delivered in a unique SteamPunk style. With 35 challenging levels, mind-bending features and awesome bosses; IonBallEX is the breakout game to "break" all the others. See where you can get on the leaderboards, or unlock achievements like "Record Breaker" or "Wipeout"; the IonBallEX challenge is here"

The game is a modest 35MB download (still need WiFi though) and so far we have to admit, it ain't too shabby. Head on here to the Marketplace for the link and let us know what you think in comments.

See the video preview after the break...

Thats great that it seems not bad. To be honest I always had a hate for indie games on the xbox I made fun of my friends playing them (thought most would be a waste of time). Sense playing twin blades and a few others, I am really glad microsoft decided to start porting them to xbl on the wp7 gives me a chance to play them without having to dig through all the **** on there (vibrating controller ****

I'm afraid I'm unable to download it from the German marketplace even though it opens using the Zune link you posted but there's no price shown and no option to try or buy. :(

try changing your location on your PC and Xbox live account to a diffrent country. i made mine USA ( im from canada ) and it worked :P

dreas says:
