By Sean Carey,
UPDATE: Xbox Live has just sent out a message confirming that there was indeed a mistake and Toybox Turbos will still be available to download.

ORIGINAL STORY: It seems that Xbox has swapped out one of April's Games with Gold. Codemasters, Toybox Turbos will no longer be available between April 16th-30th. Instead, users will be able to download and keep the original Xbox title, Blinx: The Time Sweeper.

Blinx The TimeSweeper

A message was sent out via Xbox Live last night. The message doesn't explicitly announce the change; it just lists the backwards compatible, Blinx: The Time Sweeper in Toybox Turbo's place. It should be pointed out that this message could be a mistake or a regional change. As Blinx is an original Xbox title, this obviously means no achievements.

Blinx: The Time Sweeper is a platforming game that was released back in 2002. Players take on the role of the Blinx who is employed as a Time Sweeper in a Time Factory. Blinx is responsible for fixing Time Glitches when they occur. If Time Glitches are not corrected, they eventually turn into Time Crystals and then Time Monsters. A gang has been going around stealing Time Crystals and has also kidnapped a princess. It's up to the player and Blinx to rescue the princess.

Two of April's Games with Gold titles are available now. Both Project Cars 2 and Fable Anniversary are free to download and keep. Knights of Pen and Paper +1 Deluxier Edition, Knights of Pen & Paper 2 Deluxiest Edition and Blinx: The Time Sweeper will be available on April 16th.
