Deathspank-Backwards

The list of Xbox 360 games that are now capable of being played on Xbox One continues to grow, as Major Nelson has revealed the next 3 games that are backwards compatible. The games being added to the list are smaller games compared to some of the more recent offerings, though they can still provide decent entertainment.

The latest batch of backwards compatible games are the following, with descriptions from the Xbox Marketplace:

  • Bejeweled 3: The biggest, brightest Bejeweled ever! Discover all-new ways to play the world’s #1 puzzle game. Find your perfect match with 8 breathtaking game modes that meet all your moods — ease into Classic Bejeweled for cascades of fun, journey through 40 challenging Quest puzzles, charge into the electrifying Lightning for non-stop action, and tailor your experience in Zen for a revolutionary new way to relax. Enjoy the amazing sights and sounds and engage in endless gem-matching fun, and earn flashy achievement badges as you soar to dazzling new heights!
  • Deathspank: Thongs of Virtue: Join DeathSpank, in his all new adventure! Fight through war-torn battlefields, tame the violent High Plains and sail your own pirate ship through the savage seas. DeathSpank will vanquish all-new evils, help all-new downtrodden, and dispense justice as only he can. Wield exciting new weapons, slay unbelievable new creatures and get to the bottom of the Thongs of Virtue. The downtrodden cry for justice and DeathSpank will save them or kill them trying.
  • Gatling Gears: When the Empire begins its reign of destruction in a thirst for natural resources, it’s up to Max Brawley, a retired Gatling Gear pilot, to stop them. Together with his niece and his trusty Gatling Gear unit he must fight his way to the heart of the Empire and eliminate the destruction at its source.

The most recent games that were added to the backwards compatibility list were Forza Horizon and Castle of Illusion, though the latter was delisted last week. This was due to a licensing deal for the game recently expiring, which prevents the publisher from selling the game any longer.
