Platformance: Castle Pain is a tough platformer available on the Xbox Live Indie Games service. You take control of a knight who must battle his way through a dangerous castle and save the princess.

If Super Meat Boy and Journey to the Center of the Earth had a love child, this would probably be it. There are spinning axes to dodge, bats to flee from, spikes to bound over, octopuses to not make friends with and ghosts to beat a hasty retreat from. Certain obstacles can get a little frustrating, but there are plenty of checkpoints so you'll never be sent too far back.

Download Platformance: Castle Pain from the Xbox Live Marketplace for a mere 80 MS Points - that's one dollar, folks!
