This game was one of the 2011 summer of arcade games for the Xbox live market place.
it takes place in the past and is based around a tribe of people who are searching for the people who came before them. the aim is to create a set number of villages around the map and make it to the gate without losing all of your people.
you play the breath an element controlling being who must use the resources around the village to protect the villagers.
this game really does build on the idea of the lemmings but adds a modern update in that you must use the elements to protect you people think of it as a RTS lemmings game.
the way that you use the elements is that you can pick up mud, sand, water and lava and put it somewhere else. lava makes more land and or walls, sand and mud can be moved to make paths and walls and water can be moved to slow the progression of lava.
during the course of the game you must defend your village from the elements by using the elements. re-diverting lava and water and collect the knowlege of their predecessors to protect them for natural disasters such as tsunami's and volcano eruptions.
this game has two modes which is the standard campaign and the challenge mode each of which consists of a good amount of levels and can give up to a weeks worth of playing the first time round. the challenge mode itself consist of around 50 short missions.
there is not real online mode but it dose contain a leaderboard.
i would recommend this game to fans of RTS and the lemmings purely because they have the same principles.
Summary: I love this XBLA Title and it is well worth the MS points
