XBL Deal of the Week: IonBall EX (Video)

Xbox Live Deal of the Week gets you gaming on the cheap. Every Wednesday an Xbox Live game goes on sale and the discount stays in effect until the new Deal is released.


This week’s Deal is IonBall EX by IronSun Studios. This Breakout-styled game with a steampunk coat of paint originally came out back in August 2011. Unlike many other games released around the same time, IonBall EX has been updated to support Mango and overall the app has done decently in the Marketplace with a 3.5 star average rating. If you’re in the mood for some classic ball bashing (that didn’t sound right) the game might be worth the download. Here’s the official description of the game:

IonBallEX is a modern twist on a classic Breakout style game, featuring an XP-based progression system and end-of-level bosses that are going to push you to the extreme, all delivered in a unique SteamPunk style. With 35 challenging levels, mind-bending features and awesome bosses; IonBallEX is the breakout game to “break” all others. See where you can get on the leaderboard, or unlock achievements like “Record Breaker” or “Wipeout”; the IonBallEX challenge is here.

IonBall EX has dropped from $2.99 to $1.99 for the rest of the week. The standard free trial is also available.
