A new game has joined the ranks of the Xbox One backward compatibility program: Shank 2.

The 2D, side-scrolling action brawler originally launched in 2012. The game tasks you with fighting your way through multiple levels using weapons collected from your fallen enemies. If that’s not your speed, you can try lobbing Molotov cocktails into their ranks. You can even play with a friend in an endless survival mode. For those who don’t own it already, the game costs $9.99 on the Xbox Store.

This is the second title in a week that Microsoft has added to the backward compatibility program, and it doesn’t quite match the high-water mark of that last game. The selection of compatible games is slowly growing, but, as always, fans want more. Don’t forget to check out EGM’s list of which games we want added to the program.

Emma’s early gaming was mostly done in secret, as the only gamer in a family of normal people. She still retains skills from this dark period in her life, such as the ability to teleport instantly across the house away from the computer, and holds a gold medal in the Olympic sport of “Hide the Gameboy.” Sorry, Mom, now you know.
