Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

E3 First Impressions: PixelJunk Sidescroller

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

The PixelJunk series has been extremely eclectic, so it's no wonder they're now moving to take the sidescroller 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 Network booth 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, Sidescroller doesn'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.
