Hi guys (and indeed gals), just had a great find for a free xbox 360 arcade game (well free at time of posting). It also has a very easy 200 points. It can be found available for download from the 360 dashboard once signed in!

Its actually quite a fun game, albeit a very short one (well, can't really moan...we don't have to pay for it), filled with advertising (it's free, probably due to the fact that Doritos features heavily) and even has multiplayer!

The aim of the game is to either destroy trucks delivering Doritos to the delivery points by biting/stomping on them as an upgradable T-Rex or deliver the doritos to the delivery points whilst avoiding the T-Rex.

The concept, although rather basic, will keep you occupied to at least the end of both sets of missions. Becaus of the basic element of Dash of Destruction, you can imagine it would have extremely basic achievements. You'd be right. 200 points (i.e. 100%) in 15 minutes (even though you may have to play a multiplayer match with yourself to get one of them).

Although I am really pushing you download this game, there are a few downsides - the graphics are mediocre, the controls are sluggish and I think the single player does only have a few things to make you get back to it. There is also an annoying avatar that talks to you between levels, I'd imagine he has a big connection to Doritos, but I don't think I'm too bothered about finding out...their subliminal (well, rather brash) advertising hasn't worked.

Right I'm off for some cheesey tortilla chips and some dip... Doritos are now springing to mind...

Not the foggiest, I'm an xbox user :S

The cheats section may indicate where to input the code somewhere else on the page though. May be worth checking.

Thanks for your comments FM. You're right, it did remind me of Micromachines.

I enjoy Arcade games and may do a guide on what ones to recommend and what ones to avoid.

This is a definite download - just for the fact that it is a free download!

Know what it reminded me of? Micromachines. Took me 30 minutes to get all 200 points, 20 of those minutes were spent borrowing and hooking up a second controller for multiplayer.

NinjaBee who developed this also did Outpost Kaloki X and A Kingdom for Keflings on XBLA.

Arcade games aren't really my cup of tea, I prefer 7-hour gaming sessions where I can get totally immersed as opposed to quick blasts of fun, but it's impossible to knock a free game.
