The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

E3 First Impressions: PixelJunk Sidescroller

Posted on Wednesday, June 15 @ 20:31:58 PST by Eduardo_Reboucas



The PixelJunk series has been extremely eclectic, so it's no wonder they're now moving to take thesidescroller genre as their latest conquest. Granted, earlier games in the series have made use of side-scrolling in one way or the other, but PixelJunk Sidescroller is molded after classic shoot 'em ups through and through.


The demo I played at Sony's Playstation Networkbooth showed off a left-to-right shooting stage that looked and felt just like shooting games of old all the while coated in the unique look of PixelJunk, meaning lots of color and crazy shapes flying all over the place.



Unlike Shooter, Sidescrollerdoesn't make nice with walls. Dumb as I am, I tried flying my little ship into a river or... something in the hopes of getting a power-up. That was totally futile, unless you consider death a power-up. The only thing that kept me from that power-up was my ship's weapons. While the demo made several weapons available to me, you'll probably unlock each as you progress through the retail game.

PixelJunk Sidescroller looks to be just as fun as the previous games in the series. It certainly seems to stand on its own as a great little homage to the classics.
