Elbert Perez has released a free-to-download PC version of his upcoming Xbox Live Community Games title 'Gum Drop Celestial Frontier'. Don't let the long and rather odd name put you off - there's some good stuff to play here.

While your ship doesn't have any lasers to take on the incoming enemies, it does have the SMASH ball, which can be swung around your ship and, well, smashed into your opponents. There's also a few other different moves which can be pulled off, and many powerups to try out. The game itself feels nicely polished and well worth a look-in.

Presumably Elbert is hoping this PC release will convince people to buy the game from XBLGC later this month. Until then, give this free version a try.
