Rocket Riot XBLA details, screens

We first caught wind of the XBLA rocket-pack-based shooter back in November, back when there was little to no information on the game. Now we have a few more details on the game, not much unfortunately, but enough to give us (and you) an insight into the final product. Rocket Riot sticks closely to the ideas evoked by its name, featuring a world rendered in stylized 8bit form that is entirely destructible with your tiny avatar's bazooka. The game will feature over 80 single player missions and multiplayer for up to eight players online (four local) with four different gametypes. The game's website has a bit more info, but it's not very concrete and is mainly teaser. Much of the game is still under wraps for now, but we do know that it will be releasing before year's end, and likely during the fall, as the game appears to still have a ways to go. Still, the screens look like something fresh, so we'll keep and eye on this one.
