Spheroids hits the Windows Store as the latest Xbox Play Anywhere game

The list of games with Xbox Play Anywhere support just grew by one. Spheroids (opens in new tab) is the latest game to come to the Windows Store with support for Play Anywhere, letting you platform your way through the quirky game on both Xbox One and Windows 10.

So what is Spheroids? Here's a snippet from the game's description:

In Spheroids you take control of Lucas, a jumpy Canadian boy who sets out on an adventure with his crazy scientist companion Otto after it's discovered that the government has been hiding alternative universes from the cubic world they live in. Unfortunately, these alternative universes contain spheres that wish to turn everything round, so it's up to Lucas to save the world from these dangerous aliens: the Spheroids.

Along with a kooky plot, the game sports a pretty interesting art style that covers multiple environments across a total of 32 levels. If Spheroids strikes your fancy, you can grab the game now for $8 from the Windows Store and start playing on your Xbox and Windows 10 PC.

Thanks, @WinUsr, for the tip!

  • The more the better. I really hope Play Anywhere takes off big time.
  • Play Anywhere makes a lot of sense, but I believe that once the new gaming model the Scorpio brings, it will be more the norm than the exception.
  • Nice Buster Bros evolution. Hope this has tight controls (this type of experience needs it)
  • FYI for those who are curious, this game will also be available on Steam at http://store.steampowered.com/app/586430 
  • Pang platform. Nice.
  • Bought it thanks to this article. Hope it's worth that 10 bucks :D
