Check price and availability in your Xbox LIVE region

Game DescriptionA puzzle-platformer of cataclysmic proportions, starring an ornery blob with an insatiable appetite. Begin the game a tiny captive carnivore, finish a city-devouring giant. Gain freakish new abilities including magnetism, telekinesis, and rocket power. Platforming has never been this viscous, nor this various. 24 expansive single player campaign levels, PLUS top-down bonus stages. Consume everything, regret nothing!

Add the game trial to your Xbox 360 download queue

More on Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack from the developers:

Hello from DrinkBox Studios!

We’re very happy to announce that our breakout hit, Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack, is out now for the Xbox 360. Do you like puzzles? Do you like platforming? Do you like to absorb objects while you do both of those things? Even if you only answered yes to one of those things, hear us out.

Mutant Blobs Attack is a puzzle-munchy-platformer about exacting revenge on the human race by eating the world around you to grow larger, larger and larger.

You start out the size of a penny, absorbing tiny objects to increase in size, allowing you to see the levels around you at different scales, and be able to interact with objects that earlier were too large for you to move. Most importantly you’ll experience the joys of eating boots, humans, cows, and space cows.

  

In addition to consuming all of existence, you will also gain some pretty unique blob powers such as Magnetism, and Telekinesis. Attach yourself to any metal object in the environment to zoom around inverted, or use your blob brain to control objects from a distance.

How much will it cost you to have what might be the greatest experience of your life? As of today you can now purchase Mutant Blobs Attack for $7.99. Also, be sure to give us some blob love on Twitter @DrinkBoxStudios.

More Than 45 New Apps Coming to Xbox

As of the latest Xbox One system update, currently rolling out worldwide, everyone with an Xbox has access to all of our available entertainment experiences. And that lengthy list is about to get significantly longer – today we’re pleased to announce that our app catalog will increase by nearly 25%, bringing the tally to more than 225 apps around the world.

One addition I’d like to highlight is the way Twitter will be integrated into Xbox One’s TV experience. U.S. viewers will have the ability to see Tweets related to whatever cable or satellite TV shows you’re watching as they’re happening. Take a look:

Another exciting new feature coming to Xbox One is the first Vine app made for TV. Not only will you be able to watch all your favorite Vine videos on the biggest screen in your house, you’ll be able to share gameplay videos from Upload Studio as a Vine.

There are plenty more new apps on the way as well – 46, to be exact. For the full list of upcoming apps, click over to Xbox Wire.

First Details on Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion

Today, Activision and Infinity Ward are offering the first look at Invasion, the third DLC Pack available for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Invasion features four Multiplayer maps and the next installment in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative, Awakening. Have a look at the trailer:

Here’s more on those new Multiplayer maps:

DEPARTED – Set in a rural Mexican town amidst the Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) celebration, this medium-sized map features a classic three-lane design. The decorative streets, back alleys, and festive cemetery have plenty of cover for run-and-gunners, but still features some long-range engagements.

If you complete the map’s unique Field Order, you will unlock the Death Mariachi killstreak. Armed with dual wielding pistols, the Death Mariachi rampages through the map, turning your kills into your own squad mates. Celebrate the dead, just try not to become one of them!

PHARAOH – In an abandoned archeological site of an ancient Egyptian palace, where the pyramids create a formidable backdrop, this medium sized, complex multi-level map includes a collapsing monument, urns full of flesh-eating scarabs, and other surprises.

Within the Egyptian palace, you will battle through different chambers, a throne room, and temples ideal for close-quarters combat and short-range weapons, all under the watchful eye of Anubis, the half-jackal/half-human, protector of the dead. The more adventurous of you will be handsomely rewarded by exploring the deepest secrets of the site.

MUTINY – In a secretive cove on a remote Caribbean island, this mysterious inlet is not your ideal holiday destination. Harboring an eerie pirate hideout – complete with abandoned trading posts and prison cells – you’ll need to focus on speed and stealth as you find your way through the narrow and intertwining pathways.

Mutiny comes packed with many “treasures” for you to discover, such as the map’s unique killstreak – an escort of ghostly pirates who will happily send your foes down to Davy Jones’ Locker.

FAVELA – Favela is a refreshed version of the fan-favorite Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map of the same name. Years later, the favela has seen substantial cosmetic changes – buildings once under-construction are now complete, while others have not aged as gracefully as others with the passage of time, and are now in a state of disrepair.

With narrow passageways, multiple housing complexes, and abandoned storefronts, there is also plenty of opportunity for shorter range weapons as you navigate this Brazilian shantytown.

Extinction continues its storyline with Episode 3: Awakening. Descend into an alien underworld and strike at the mysterious puppet-masters behind the Cryptid invasion. Three new Cryptid species await players, along with some familiar enemies and allies.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion arrives first on Xbox – next Tuesday, June 3rd.
