PixelJunk shooter review

This game reminds me of Solar Jetman for some reason. Maybe it is collecting things on a 2D plane controlling a ship. Your job is to save the scientists/miners whilst navigating your spaceship through obstacles and the ever changing environment.

This game reminds me of Solar Jetman for some reason.  Maybe it is collecting things on a 2D plane controlling a ship.   Your job is to save the scientists/miners whilst navigating your spaceship through obstacles and the ever changing environment.

The controlling of the ship is basic where the fun really comes from is exploring the 2D environments and playing around with the fire, earth and water elements to complete stages is a lost mechanic of the 8 bit/16 bit era.  I ended up restarting a lot of the levels as I wanted to get a perfect score and save all the scientists.

It is pure old skool gaming with updated visuals and sound.  Speaking of the sound it has some amazing techno/ambient music in this game.  The game lasts for around 5-7 hours depending on your gaming prowess.  It has amazing sound with great gameplay mechanics.  I can’t wait for the sequel.

5/5

It looks as though the same development team that created the multiplayer component of Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow will be working on this.  It sounds intriguing…. after enjoying Assassin’s Creed 2 I am looking forward to this.
