Wow, somebody at Microsoft is on the ball this week. Not only has Gerbil Physics appeared on the Marketplace ahead of schedule, but so has the new Xbox Live Deal of the Week. Said deal happens to be IonBallEX from IronSun Studios. It’s on sale for $1.99, down from $2.99.

IonBallEX is an Arkanoid-style game in which players use a paddle and ball to break bunches of bricks. This game is more interesting than many of its brethren (especially 3D Brick Breaker Revolution, ugh) thanks to its gothic steampunk setting, a wide variety of block types and power-ups, lots of enemies and bosses to fight, and an addictive upgrade system. Check out our full review for more details.

IonBallEX is on sale for $1.99 for one week only. Get it here on the Marketplace and start knocking some balls around.

Thanks to Tyler1701 for the tip. Kid’s got the heart of a champion!
