Whad­daya mean, you’d for­got­ten about the ex­is­tence of this 2002 ex­clu­sive for the orig­i­nal Xbox from Ar­toon? Blinx the cat, armed with his time-con­trol­ling vac­uum cleaner, was sup­posed to be Mi­crosoft’s an­swer to Sonic or Mario – the Xbox’s mas­cot – for gawd’s sake. So let’s pause to gen­u­flect at the al­tar of Mas­ter Chief. Yes, Blinx and its se­quel, 2004’s Blinx 2: Masters Of Time And Space were pretty bog-stan­dard plat­form­ers, so we’re not be­ing en­tirely se­ri­ous when we ad­vo­cate its res­ur­rec­tion. Though to be fair its time-ma­nip­u­lat­ing me­chanic was pretty in­ter­est­ing (you could pause, rewind, fast-foward, slow-mo and record, all on the Xbox’s hard drive), and the Xbox One could al­ways do with more kid-friendly fran­chises.
