Aah Little Atlantis released on XBLIG

Aah Little Atlantis” (ALA) is out now on Xbox Live Indie Games (XBLIG). It’s an Xbox 360 indie game with a retro feel developed by the tiny independent games company Aah Games. The game costs just 80 MS points and appeals to puzzle / strategy fans with empathy for the little people, as it involves rescuing Atlanteans amidst the destruction of their mythical homeland. The sea claims low lying land and rocks rain down from above yet still you must try to rescue them all. Of course, those residents with more wealth and importance clearly deserve to be rescued first. If only everyone wasn’t so predictably stupid it might just be that bit easier… (Ab)use their fear of water, boats and rafts to shepherd them safely before the island sinks, leaving just the peaks of mountains where they can take refuge. So what if no-one has thought about what these stranded survivors do next!

ALA was originally created in one weekend for the Ludum Dare 17 competition. Out of 204 entries, it was rated 2nd in the “theme” category, “3rd” in the innovation category, and finished 23rd overall! The Xbox 360 version is a vast improvement from that competition entry, with better graphics, audio, more levels, and an extensive tutorial.

Rating: out of 5
