Horn Swaggle Island on XBLIG has had an update to address some issues with the games.
Here is what Kevin from Pencel Games had to say about the patch:
“We have listened carefully to all our feedback, good and in particular bad, and our patch finally made it live a couple of weeks ago. The patch addresses the issues some players were having with SD TVs by offering a proper zoom/pan camera and improved font readiblity. We fixed a bunch of other minor useability bugs and a bug for French players.
So that patch is out now, and we’ve also reduced our price by 40% so people can now enjoy all of Horn Swaggle Islands for only 240 MSP. Even though we say it ourselves it is a lot of game for around 3 dollars.”

Since the launch of the Xbox, Microsoft has been pretty consistent in making sure that steer they well and truly clear of the games market for very young children. I am not sure if they believe it would be un-cool to have kids games on the Xbox or not, but it has fallen on the shoulders of the independent developers to bring titles to the machine.
In the development community there has been a lot of discussion as to whether or not the Xbox can take on a market dominated by V-Tech and luckily some independents are willing to give it a go.
Kissypoo looks like a very simple game that has the balance of good visuals and simple game play that should appeal to the very young gamer.
With the growing number of games available in XBLIG Educational and Family section, the addition of Kissypoo to other great kids titles like Find Teddy and Flash Cards For Kids is very welcome. Let’s hope that MS and gaming parents out there realise that you don’t have to just fob your child off with a switched off controller!
You can have fun and help educate the little ones all thanks to some XBLIG developers that are willing to take a chance and have a go at taking a little piece of V-techs pie.
