A Kingdom for Kelflings may not be perfect, but it is a fun little title that throws your avatar into taking care of an adorable little village. Imagine the peaceful parts of Black & White with avatar support and you've pretty much got the picture. There are better games out there, but 400 points is a good price nonetheless. Oh, and there are easy achievements for the taking, Scorewhores!

Castle Crashers is still one of the finest games on the service. Behemoth's hack 'n' slash RPG is simple to play, deceptively deep and boasts a unqiue art style and sense of humour. Thoroughly recommended- though frankly, you should've bought it already!

Geometry Wars 2 is awesome. As the sequel to one of the most beloved XBLA titles of all time, it ups the ante by adding a slew of new game modes, enemies and multiplayer options. Whilst I personally consider the Geometry Wars series to be slightly overrated and under-featured compared to other twinstick shooters on the market, 400 MSP is an absolute steal.

N+ is another 400 point bargain. You'll jump, slide and wallrun your way around expertly designed levels- and the huge amount of content will keep you going for hours. Its groovy art style is pleasant to behold, though the difficulty of some of the later levels can be slightly aggravating. Pure, unadulterated value.

Zombie Apocalypse is another twinstick time sink. Boasting impressive graphics and some brutal weaponry, you'll essentially re-enact some of Left 4 Dead's epic finales from an isometric perspective. Whilst tedium is bound to set in if you play it for more than half an hour at a time, 400 Points will net you a massive amount of gory zombie murder.
