"You are Ares, the first Zytron immune robot. A symbol of how far human technology has come, you are the most advanced robot in existence; built to run faster, jump higher, and fire quicker. In addition to these core attributes, your design includes a system for converting spare parts and resources into valuable items, armor, and weaponry. You will need to use everything at your disposal in order to reach and rescue the survivors aboard the Zytron infected space station."

A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda released

There are games that get a ton of hype before release and then there are the games you find out afterward that look interesting. For the latter category you have A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda, a new arcade side-scroller from developer Extend Studio that was just released this week.

The sci-fi themed game (which is also the first chapter in a possible episodic series) has you controlling a robot on board a space station that's filled with things that want to shoot you down. The game lets players collect spare parts from all the carnage that can be used by the robot for upgrades for weapons ammo and more. You can find out more about the development team behind A.R.E.S. in this Joystiq interview and if you want to try the game out before you buy there's also a demo that you can download right here at Big Download.

The full game is now available to download via Direct2Drive, GamersGate and on the game's official web site for $14.99. (it's also DRM-free) Keep in mind that if you download and install the demo first you have to uninstall it before installing the full game.
