Microsoft will be offering you a new pair of Live Arcade titles tomorrow.

The first, we like to think of as an underwater Afrika. You see, in Sea Life Safari the idea is to swim around and take pictures of crabs or fish or any one of 60 aquatic beasties and then put them in a scrapbook. You can paddle around coral reefs or explore sunken ships and even follow fish to hidden treasure. Perhaps you'll discover a chest full of Microsoft Points to replace the 800 (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60) you've spent on Sea Life Safari.

The other game is Elements of Destruction. This casts you as a mad scientist who has lost his job, presumably because he is mad. He can control the weather, so your goal is to use lightning, earthquakes, storms, and all sorts to bring about revenge worthy of the Count of Monte Cristo.

Elements of Destruction also costs 800 Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60).

Look out for our reviews of both very soon.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
