Yet another new game's popped up on Xbox Live Arcade overnight - this one's called Feeding Frenzy, and is a port of a dinky PC game about gobbling up fish.

Basically it works like this: you are an angel fish, you can move in any direction using the left analogue stick, and when you come into contact with a smaller fish than you mouth-first, you gobble it up. You can do a little pounce style short-sprint by hitting A. The idea is simply to eat lots of small fish until you grow in size. At which point, obviously, you can start tackling the bigger ones you've been avoiding up to then.

There's a sort of "FRENZY" meter you can build up, by the looks of the demo, high score rankings, time attacks and all sorts - most of which is unlockable by buying the full game, which costs 800 "Microsoft points", or about £6.80 in real money.

We'll bring you some thoughts on it in the near future. In the meantime, you can check out the freely downloadable demo (about 30MB) for a taster.
