Xbox Cloud Now Lets You Play Katamari And Among Us Without A Controller

Plenty of new titles are coming to Xbox Game Pass but what might've slipped your radar is the Cloud support. You can use touch controls for Among Us, Katamari Damacy Reroll, Lumines Remastered, Pupperazzi, Rubber Bandits, Spelunky 2, Telling Lies, Undungeon, and Young Souls.

The support adds on-screen buttons meaning you can run around on your phone as the little green-headed imp, rolling all the towns' goodies into a big ball as you devour the Earth like a ravenous Kirby. You don't need any extra costly peripherals, just the Xbox Cloud app and a Game Pass subscription.

It's still Xbox Cloud, so you need a steady internet or data connection because you'll be streaming the game. It isn't native. Phones aren't there just yet, although tablets can play Alien Isolation now, so who knows? While Among Us and Katamari are highlights, Telling Lies is a visual novel from Silent Hill: Shattered Memories' creator and Pupperazzi is a game all about taking photos of dogs. Granted, with your phone, you could just go out and take photos of real dogs, but it's cute all the same.

You can play Among Us on your phone natively, though. And since it's an online game, streaming it might not be the smoothest experience, but if you have Game Pass, the option is there. You'll save a few quid, at least.

Spelunky 2 is another highlight, being one of the highest-rated roguelite games on the market, so if you're itching for another Hades-like experience after Supergiants' award-winning indie, then you're in luck. There are a wealth of other touchscreen-supported games already available, too, if you haven't checked out the library yet.

In other Game Pass news, Xbox Cloud has finally added mouse and keyboard support meaning that, if you really want, you can throw touchscreen to the wayside and get stuck into Among Us with a PC-like setup. Typing might be a little easier, eh?
