The stylish indie title finally arrives on Microsoft's platform after previously being released for PC and PlayStation 4 - where it was free for Plus subscribers to download at launch.

Re-mastered retro classic Another World has also arrived for Xbox One - its 25th platform of release so far. It costs 6.39.

The 1991 cult classic is also available this week for PlayStation 3, PS4 and Vita.

Microsoft's ID@Xbox programme is gathering pace - this week also saw the launch of Zombie Driver Ultimate (an expanded port of the so-so last-gen original), and RBI Baseball 14 (currently available in the US only).

"As its name suggests, Contrast is a game of light and dark: a puzzle platformer with two well-realised female leads that occasionally buckles under the weight of its own mechanics," Stace Harman wrote in Eurogamer's Contrast review. "It's beautiful in parts, but also a little broken; I admire it for the first and can almost forgive it the second."
