Behemoth duo for Live Arcade

Alien Hominid, Castle Crashers.

The Behemoth's quirky 2D shooter Alien Hominid will appear on Xbox Live Arcade later this year, while the developer's other game, another side-scroller called Castle Crashers, will join the XBLA line-up in early 2007.

Alien Hominid began life as a Flash game before it made its way to PS2, GameCube and Xbox. The 360 version will of course be in high-definition and widescreen, and we're also told to expect a few bonuses for people familiar with the original.

Castle Crashers looks almost as manic as Alien Hominid, but adds a bit of into-the-screen depth to the side-scrolling so that the four little block-headed player-characters can deal death in different ways - with all sorts of sword-lashing combination attacks and fireball-chucking.
