*CLOSED* LAST DAY!! - Competition: Win Panic Attack! (X360)

*CLOSED* LAST DAY!! - Competition: Win Panic Attack! (X360)Let's make this as clear as possible: Panic Attack is a thing that you want. Branded as the "Devil's Favourite Game," it's a new and incredibly intense experience that's wrapped in an impeccable retro package. Armed with little more than blistering speed and bouncing potential, players will need to guide the adorable spherical hero through a daunting array of horrific traps and challenges. The gameplay is fast, furious and dangerously addictive... and the presentation is top-notch courtesy of slick visuals and the fist-pumpingly awesome chiptune sountrack. It handily won our Xbox Live Indie Game of the Week roundup.

Want a free copy? Of course you do. Luckily the good folks over at DeRail Games were kind enough to send me a couple of codes. To be in with a chance of winning, simply drop us a line in the comments and show Panic Attack some love! Any evidence that you've played the demo will, as always, stand you in great stead.

Panic Attack is available to demo and download at Xbox.com as well the Indie marketplace. It retails at 240 Microsoft Points.

I'd love to win a copy as I'm still waiting for my rebate and only recently used my last points up on some other indie games. Loved the trial of this - can't quite compare it to anything else, indie game or otherwise!

Looks simple but awesome!

8 bit music, epileptic inducing visuals, frustratingly difficult, what's not to like? Devil's favourite game! A real controller thrower.

worth a go by the looks of it

Definitely a game that's right up my street this one and I'd love to win a copy. Had a go of the demo and got a taste for that retro nostalgic feeling; like going back in time and opening a dancing flower on Christmas day, only less carp.

It's like a cross between Sonic and VVVVVV (Google this game if you've not heard it, it's sensational). I find I much prefer buying smaller size /downloadable releases these days over full retail games; the latter of which, despite their good looks, are becoming ever easier to just plod through without much sense of satisfaction or genuine achievement. Often they're bogged down by attempts to be expansive and appear film-like, when in reality the level of writing in games really isn't interesting enough to replace the storytelling in films, nor creative enough to beat the (challenging) fun had in old school games!

bounce bounce bounce, loving the retro feel

It's like a cross between Sonic, VVVVVV (search Google this game if you haven't heard of it, it's sensational and a bit underlooked)

I'm so retro. I'll be playing this whilst having my banging tunes on casette blasting out of my boombox. Word! More bouncy than Tigger himself.

Erik  Nov. 19, 2010 at 09:46

It's like a heady mix between VVVVVV and Sonic The Hedgehog... Keep up the blog entries reporting on XBL's Indie games as info seems to be pretty thin on the ground otherwise.

Any game that reminds me of the ZX Spectrum era is a massive win for me. Also, chiptunes rule.

Kevin  Nov. 19, 2010 at 11:21

Sorry... (arrrrg) would love to comment but.... (uuurrggg)
I'm having a Panic Attaaaaack...

I LOVED the demo and playing it reminded me of when my nes controller button got stuck when playing Megaman, which made him constantly jump. Only on steroids.

Stevie Allan  Dec. 3, 2010 at 13:45

Fast moving 8-bit sprites, catchy chiptunes music and a difficulty curve steeper than the Matterhorn...... SIGN ME UP!

nick j  Dec. 3, 2010 at 14:11

Billy  Dec. 3, 2010 at 14:33

Loved the demo and its the first time i have ever downloaded an indie demo! I have however spent all my points on the black friday deals last week :( i would/need a code!

NickS  Dec. 3, 2010 at 14:44

Lets party like its 1989, love the demo, clearly inspired by old skool Commodore 64/Amiga days...now if only I could plug a Zipstik or Competition Pro joystick into my Xbox 360.
