Recently, my girlfriend asked me if there existed a relatively easy game like the old Mario games that she could play on my 360. Usually, she doesn't really take an interest in playing games, and the only game she ever really enjoyed playing on the 360 was the HD remake of the original Prince of Persia that was released a couple of years ago, because she remembered the game from when she was young. She is therefore mainly interested in an accessible 2D (platform) game. I normally don't have a problem coming up with an answer to these type of questions, but now, I really don't know.
Games I thought of were 'Splosion Man, Sonic, Eets: Chowdown (not a platformer, but maybe interesting nonetheless), and Rayman Origins, of which 'Splosion Man seemed to be the most easy-to-enter one. However, after seeing her struggle with the demo (although she completed it eventually), I doubt she'll make it any far in to the game while still having fun. I checked almost the entire list of (European) XBLA releases, but nothing popped out as a clear winner. I’m checking The Fancy Pants Adventure right now to see if that might be something she’d enjoy, but I was wondering if you guys have got some suggestions?
