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.
