Who’s your Daddy? His name is Glitch. One small bot. Two big nuts of steel. Seventeen enormous weapons of destruction to take out a mechanical madman and save his planet. Metal Arms flashes in the Flashback series for July. Looking back at this game makes me realize why I enjoyed the movie Wall-E so much because the two look similar. It was one of the games I felt went overlooked but was a lot of fun. Vivendi Universal & Swingin Ape Studios gave the original Xbox a small, robotic hero.
His hands could be switched with any combination of weapon attachments that you came across. Switching attachments was a lot of fun. You could even take over enemies and control them with a fancy beam gun. And there was multiplayer action as well. Who doesn’t want to see Glitch make his way to the Xbox 360? I know I’d love it.

You can check out some screenshots here. If you can find this title, it’s even backward compatible with the Xbox 360. Not a lot of you remember, but there were some hidden gems on the original Xbox.
