While many of these games were region-free and playable on North American Xbox 360 consoles, some were region-locked and required purchasing a Japanese console if you wanted to play the platform's full shmup library.

Kalimba keeps its gameplay nice and straightforward. You control totem pieces who move in tandem, triggering platforms, swapping positions, and opening switches by working as a team.
