Available from June 1 to June 30:
Play against your friends or in single player mode in this four-player competitive platform runner! But don’t get behind, because once you are off the screen you will blow up! You are able to play both online and locally at the same time. In single player mode, the player can compete against AI and can also use them when playing against other. Weapons like grappling hooks, boxes, drills, and freeze rays can cause opponents to slow down or be pulled behind. With the ability to make your own maps to publish, there are no limits to what you can do in this game. It was released April 19 of last year for PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and created by tinyBuild GAMES. Its regular cost is $14.99.

Phantom Dust (Multiplayer Content Pack):
Phantom Dust is the remastered version of an older Xbox game where players use cards in order to gain skills to use in either single player mode or in competitive multiplayer mode. Instead of Phantom Dust being simply a card game, though, players can use the cards’ abilities in “third-person arena combat,” according to the Phantom Dust Microsoft store page. The Multiplayer Content Pack includes three copies of skills from the Psycho, Optical and Nature schools. Psycho skills include telekinesis, Optical skills include the ability to control light and Nature skills include using the environment to create powerful attacks that can affect all players (and yourself). The original Phantom Dust was released in 2004, and the remastered version came out just a little less than a month ago, according to the trailer on the Xbox official YouTube channel. While the base game is available for free in the Microsoft store, the Multiplayer Content Pack can be bought for $14.99.
