Those little devils over at Q-Games have been very, very busy. PixelJunk SideScroller wasn’t only announced at E3, it’s also currently playable on the E3 show floor. This clever little sidescroller was originally an unlockable level in PixelJunk Shooter 2, but it’s grown into its own game. Loaded with their trademark “flowing liquids and hazardous gases,” Shooter gets a new spin, transforming into an all-new experience. The enemies are familiar and the projectiles are flying faster than before. The game will have “brand new levels and ferocious boss attacks” – but we expected nothing less from the mind of Dylan Cuthbert.
PixelJunk SideScroller will also have puzzles, “vector-like visuals,” a customizable arsenal, difficulty settings, and leaderboards. Oh, and of course, you can share your feats via YouTube as well. No word yet on how this fits into the PixelJunk series as a whole. This PlayStation Network game should be released later this year, so be on the lookout.
