This month’s Xbox 360 titles are Beyond Good and Evil HD and Spelunky, both of which are playable on Xbox One thanks to the backwards compatibility feature.

Spelunky drops on August 1, followed by Beyond Good and Evil HD on August 16.

If you’ve yet to snap up last month’s freebies there is still time to download them from the Xbox Store.
