Two new games have just joined the Xbox backward compatibility list, and they couldn’t be more different.

First up is Shadows of the Damned, Grasshopper Manufacture’s tale of a demon hunter in the City of the Damned. Garcia Hotspur, along with his motorcycle demon sidekick Johnson, chases the Lord of Demons back to the underworld in this M-rated action adventure.

Next is Rocket Knight, the cartoony revival of the Sparkster series. Use a jetpack and sword to navigate this 2.5D platformer as Sparkster, the eponymous opossum knight.

As always, if you already owned either of these games, then you should be set to start playing on your Xbox One. And, if you want a taste of psychological horror, don’t forget to check out this week’s earlier offering of Alice: Madness Returns.
