There’s a bumper crop of new video games coming to the Xbox One this week. Here’s a quick guide to what you can look forward to playing.

There aren’t any major Xbox One releases to get excited about this week, but there are a few indie games that might scratch an itch if May’s Games with Gold titles miss the mark.

Pushy and Pully in Blockland plays just like its name suggests. It’s a retro-style arcade adventure in which two players team up to solve block puzzles and escape a planet full of monsters. It looks like colourful co-op chaos.


If you’re looking for some fast-paced 2D action, take your pick from Fury Unleashed, Reed 2, Infinite: Beyond the Mind, and Emma: Lost in Memories. Each one has a blend of platforming and action gameplay.

And if you can’t decide what to play, try SuperMash. Digital Continue’s game brings a range of popular genres together – including stealth, action, role-playing and shoot ’em ups –  to create a unique game every time you play. It’s a cool concept, if not entirely successful in execution.

Finally, this week’s “RPG with roguelike elements” release is Sin Slayers: Enhanced Edition.

Each new game can be purchased from the Xbox One digital games store and Microsoft online store. Here’s the confirmed new release lineup.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
