Geometry Wars is now Xbox One backwards compatible

The shape of things.

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved now supports Xbox One via backwards compatibility.


Available for 3.39, the Xbox 360 launch title is oft credited as the game that kicked off the Xbox Live Arcade revolution. Originally conceived as a mini-game in Bizarre Creations' Project Gotham Racing 2, the twin-stick shooter was so addictive that the developer expanded it into its own game.

It was succeeded by Bizarre Creations' sequel, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2, in 2008, along with a Wii and DS version called Geometry Wars: Galaxies in 2007. Bizarre Creations shut down in 2011 and Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions was developed by Lucid Games.

We highly recommended Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved upon its 2005 release and stick to that over a decade later. Upon the game's 10-year anniversary last autumn our John Bedford reflected on how amazing the game still is all these years later. Evidently he's been playing it off and on that entire time.
