Xbox game releases — March 1st to 7th

By Sean Carey,
As we head into March, things are still relatively quiet in terms of new Xbox releases. Next week sees 16 new games come to the Xbox platform, and while there aren't any major titles launching, there are still a few interesting titles coming up. Probably the most notable release next week (and perhaps the most controversial) is Castle of no Escape for Windows 10. The port from Xitilon is an easy completion that can net you 1,000 Gamerscore in a matter of minutes. The Windows 10 version has a much easier achievement list than the current Xbox One version of Castle of No Escape.

From this page, you can view a game's achievement list if it's been released, subscribe to a game for news updates, add them to your wishlist, and even click through to the Microsoft Store to preorder or purchase. Here's a breakdown of everything coming to the world of Xbox next week. Let us know which of these you're planning on picking up in the comments!

Castle of no Escape — Windows

THE GAME

Explore the mysterious castle full of monsters and secrets in a quest to collect all the treasures (that will also protect you from the curses on your way) and crush the main boss. The game won't let you exit the castle, no matter how you try. Technically you can win, but there is no end.

ARTEFACTS AND CURSES

Opal VS Blindness - you forget the map and don't see any new rooms, flares become useless
Pearl VS Forgetfulness - you don't remember where have you been before
Ruby VS Lethargy - monsters get the first turn to attack
Diamond VS Weakness - you lose 1 strength point every 20 turns
Emerald VS Bad luck - your minimal attack power drop to 1 instead of 50% of strength value
Blue Fire VS Bookstuck - book sticks to your hands and you can't attack anyone in this state
Sign VS everything except Bookstuck

SPELLS

Web prevents the monster from attacking and lasts 0-3 turns. Costs 1 point of intelligence.
Fireball is obvious enough. Costs 2 points of intelligence.
IQ instantly kills your opponent if its intelligence is less than yours. Otherwise, you lose. This spell doesn't spend anything.

Inspired by Leygref's Castle etc.

Mankind is quickly overtaken as their technology is turned against them and the energy emitted by the parasites begins to take control of those exposed.

In an act of desperation, the experimental RSK9 is constructed, a ship made of Pre-Gate materials and technology with the ability to absorb parasite energy and use it to power its incredible arsenal. Piloting the RSK9 is Alys, an ace pilot previously missing in action that has returned seemingly immune to parasite control. Her skill and resistance to the parasite energies influence make her the only pilot capable of preventing the extinction of mankind.
