After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Brief Game Description:

Death Jr. is a new action platforming game that seamlessly blends elements from first-person shooters with the exploration of a third-person platformer and serves up a large dose of intense gameplay and weapon heavy combat for the PSP portable. The game stars Death, Jr. (DJ), the teenage son of the grim reaper, who is armed with a mighty scythe, a family heirloom which serves as both a weapon and a unique platforming tool, along with an arsenal of guns and explosives.

DJ has a number of friends he hangs out with – Pandora, an obsessive compulsive goth girl who can't put her hands on anything without trying to open it; Smith and Weston, a pair of brainiac twins conjoined at the head; Stigmartha, a girl who bleeds from her hands whenever she gets nervous; and the Seep, an armless, legless, foul-mouthed foreign exchange student in a vat.

On a field trip to the Museum of Supernatural History , this band of friends discovers a tantalizing box and, at the insistence of Pandora, opens it, unleashing Moloch, an ancient demon, and all of his minions into the world. DJ must overcome near insurmountable odds to save his friends and the world to keep from getting into some serious trouble with his dad.

  • A unique particle-effect system and sophisticated 3D engine provide beautifully rendered characters and environments never before seen on a hand-held gaming system
