If you’ve been following El33tonline’s Xbox LIVE Arcade Updates for any length of time, you’ll know that it’s pretty rare that two Xbox LIVE Arcade games release on the same day that are at all comparable, but today we’ve got two 2D side-scrolling action platform games with Alien Spidy and Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams! While their visual styles are vastly different, we’ll take any similarities we can muster.
Find out if you’ll be looking into playing or purchasing these games below with a collection of screenshots, trailers, pricing information and official descriptions:

“After losing contact with his explorer friend Virgi, our fearless alien hero Spidy heads to Earth in his spacecraft to find her. While entering the Earth’s atmosphere, his spacecraft suddenly fails and starts to break up, causing Spidy to crash-land on the strange planet, with his craft scattered across forests, throughout ponds and into dark caves.
“Spidy finds himself alone on an alien world and faces the epic challenge of tracking down Virgi, battling strange new enemies and finding the missing pieces from his spacecraft in order to repair the damage and make their escape home.”
