I can't find the game for xbox one as it has been discontinued as of 12/16

I was hoping to get this for a 8 year old girl. Not too many games for girls. Didn't want Barbi. Was disappointed I couldn't find game even doing an Amazon search.

Is It Any Good?

Most $20 games feel like $20 games: They may be fun and beautiful, but you can tell they didn't require a team of 100 or more people working for years to create them. But The Last Tinker: City of Colors is a surprisingly lengthy and full-fledged third-person action-adventure game with fun play mechanics, an original look and feel, an unexpectedly affecting story, and a whole lot of places to explore and things to do. It even has those important little extras that make games like these more playable, including navigation hints and a smart checkpoint system. Given its scope and features, it feels like a bargain.

That's not to say it's nearly as polished as, say, a Ratchet & Clank or Mario game. Character animations are a bit stiff, and there's very little voiced dialogue. Plus, the controls can be loose at times, and the camera is occasionally problematic while grinding or moving around in tight quarters. Still, the things this game gets right shine through. Families looking for a smart, fun, safe, and affordable action-adventure game won’t be disappointed.
