Andy Eddy from Team Xbox swung by the Capcom stand at E3 yesterday

Here's a little sample of his FLOCK! Hands-on Preview article on Team Xbox.

Capcom has been pushing out some prominent titles for display at E3 this week, but one game is being tailored for an XBLA launch this December has really caught our eyes. Unlike many of its XBLA games, which are ports or derived from some of its older games and brands, this one is in the vein of Age of Booty (formerly Plunder) in that it’s a new IP…and it looks like it’ll be a lot of fun.

FLOCK! is being created by Scotland’s Proper Games, and it’s another relatively unique concept that throws tribute to such old puzzlers as Lemmings and The Lost Vikings. However, it also has looked at what made those games frustrating, then improved upon the classics.

This is another one of those XBLA gems to which we’ve been introduced that stays on our radar long after it’s shown to us. We can’t wait until the work-in-progress comes to the “debug” network Microsoft maintains for game testing, so we can play it in more depth, because our hands-on session only scratched the surface by allowing us to play a couple of levels. We’ll bring you more on Flock as we get newer looks at the game.


Make sure you read the entire FLOCK! preview article on Team Xbox as that was just a tiny sample
