Backward Compatibility lets gamers on the Xbox One play select older titles from the Xbox 360, and the list of available games is growing regularly, with the current number of games participating in the program sitting at over 330. That’s an impressive amount, especially when you consider that it’s about a third of the Xbox 360’s library.
Today’s update to the program brings in three more games: Stuntman: Ignition, Mad Tracks, and JUJU. While both Stuntman: Ignition and Mad Tracks are fairly old games – both landed on the Xbox 360 back in 2007 – JUJU is an interestingly recent release. It came out in December 2014, making it an incredibly late title for the system – for a little more context, the Xbox One had released over a year earlier at that point.
JUJU is also interesting in just how much of a departure it is from the other works of its developers at Flying Wild Hog. They’re the same studio behind the (rather excellent) Shadow Warrior reboot, and it’s proof that they’re good at making far more than in-your-face throwback shooters. JUJU’s quite the polar opposite of what they’re known for, too- it’s a family-friendly platformer designed to be enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels.
Stuntman: Ignition is the sequel to 2002’s Stuntman, and (unsurprisingly) puts you in the shoes of a stuntman. Your goal is to perform tricks while driving through courses for movie shoots. It might not be the most advanced game of its age, but it’s simple fun despite often being brought down by the trial and error involved.
Finally, Mad Tracks is a racing game inspired by Micro Machines. It’s an Xbox Live Arcade title which launched before the original strict file size limit for XBLA titles was lifted, so the final size comes in at a whopping 45MB. Combine that with its age in general and you get a pretty basic downloadable title, but it might help hold you over until the new Micro Machines comes out in April.
