Jet Set Willy 360 completely blows my mind. This is going to be the strangest Indie Games Spotlight suggestion to date. Typically I would try to explain what is going on in a spotlight article, and for that I am truly sorry this will be such an utter failure. Simply put, my time spent with Jet Set Willy 360 was a puzzling time, and I walked away with little understanding of the events in the game itself.

Jet Set Willy is the most psychedelic metroid-vania game I have ever had the pleasure of playing. It also reminds me a lot of older Atari 2600 era adventure games like Pitfall and Adventure. Beyond these loose comparisons, I don't have much in the way of an explanation of this game. However, that being said, the game is very interesting and I feel that everyone should check it out by downloading the free trial.

Jet Set Willy 360 can be added to your Xbox LIVE Indie Games collection for just 240 MSP.

If you have an Xbox Live Indie Game that you feel should be featured in an edition of the Indie Games Spotlight, please PM your suggestions to mancide .

When not enjoying video games, our fearless newshound enjoys an nice pint of fermented barley and hops in a variety of styles. India Pale Ales, Stouts, Porters, Witbiers, Saisons, Gose, Lambics, Barleywine, you name it. If it has water, malted barley, hops and yeast in it, I'll consume it. I also enjoy all things technological, Doctor Who, wrasslin, traveling, and spending time with my family.
