Some users may remember Twin Blades as it was one of the original Xbox LIVE-enabled games for Windows Phone and was then pulled shortly after because of mature content. The game which originally debuted in October 2010, was very graphic, and because Windows Phone currently lacks a rating system for their games, had to be revised.
The title is back on Windows Phone and is considered this weeks Xbox LIVE release. The only notable change, from what I can recall, is the blood’s color, which is now green instead of red. I’m sure there are other changes as well, but it’s been a long time since I’ve played the game and can’t recall any other obvious revisions. Here is the Marketplace description:
Twin Blades is a frantic shooter game set in a medieval era with unique manga-like graphics.
