Roboblitz by Naked Sky Entertainment is the first Unreal Engine 3 based game ever to be released on Xbox Live Arcade.
Thanks to ProFX, the entire game, featuring 18 levels in full 3D, fits entirely within 50MB instead of 400MB.
- 80% of Roboblitz’ textures are generated with ProFX
- 300:1 saved space compared to the use of conventional textures
- Game particularly praised for the quality of its textures (see review on IGN)
- Very fast 20MB/s average texture generation rate
