Happy Tree Friends and Ticket to Ride Hit XBLA This Wednesday
On Wednesday, a pair of new games will be released on Xbox Live Arcade, each of which will run you 800 Microsoft points ($10). Ticket to Ride is based on the board game of the same name, while Happy Tree Friends False Alarm! is based on the cartoon series of the same name. I didn’t think it possible, but Microsoft managed to pick out two games in the same week that are based off existing properties that I’ve never heard of. Bravo.
All aboard! Travel from coast to coast and visit all the stops on the exciting train adventure Ticket to Ride. Plan your routes and connect your cities across the country to become the ultimate traveler. Earn points as you claim your tracks and complete your tickets for your chance at the big score. From sea to sea, crisscross the nation as you build the longest route and take home the prize. It’s hours of fun for your family and friends. Who will come out on top when the steam clears? Get your Ticket to Ride and see!
Based on the popular and twisted Web series, Lumpy and his accident-prone friends face one gory, horrible disaster after another in Happy Tree Friends False Alarm! Armed with a helicopter pack, Lumpy rescues his pals by blasting open areas where they may be trapped with flaming napalm or explosive nitro, or he can put them into a deep freeze if they are about to stumble into danger. Try to keep the friends from peril in ten exclusive disaster-filled scenarios, each with three frantic levels, and brand new cutscenes.
