Codemasters has trampled an Overlord II demo into Xbox Live Marketplace.

The sampler offers a taste of the minion-bossing action that arrives in full on 26th June.

Overlord II brings welcome improvements to the series, such as a polished game engine, boss battles and various new abilities.

Otherwise, developer Triumph hasn't strayed too far from the original concept - retaining its dark pantomime humour.

Head over to our hands-on impressions of Overlord II for something to read while the demo downloads.

Overlord II is also heading to PC and PS3, demos of which can't be far behind.
