StarDrone / StarDrone Extreme
Platforms: CrossPlayPS VitaPS3 Genre: Action/Puzzle Published: March 2012
StarDrone Extreme is a high-speed action thriller with a mix of arcade action, pinball, breakout, physics and collect-the-objects. In StarDrone Extreme, you pilot the always-in-motion spaceship through diverse cosmic environments in order to beat each of the game's 60 levels' goals. Goals can range from getting to the end of the level, to destroying all enemies, to collecting certain items. Each level starts by aiming and shooting yourself into the outer space from cannon. Your spaceship is always in motion from this point on, and it's your job to attach to nearby gravity beacons to navigate your flight path. While tethered to a beacon, you can swing and attempt to circle the beacon until you release and slingshot yourself further. This core mechanic allowed us to bring together elements of shoot 'em up, pinball, collecting objects and exploration in one game that has no counterpart anywhere in the world.
The game controls are very intuitive and clear - you just pin the desired beacon with your finger, then release it, and physics does the rest. And you can also switch to using rear touch panel, if you like. We have two modes for rear touch panel controls. One is similar to using the touch screen, and another one uses the whole rear touch panel as a single button. In the latter case, when you tap somewhere, the game executes a special prediction algorithm to automatically select the beacon most likely aimed by you. Sony PlayStation®3 version is compatible with PlayStation®Move motion controller and playable with normal DualShock or SixAxis controllers.
Cause your attackers to crash with rapid speed while collecting gems and power-up enhancements. Overcome perilous hazards and elude zillions of enemies in an effort to complete each stage with a record score. With simple gesture controls and unique, intuitive game play mechanics, StarDrone Extreme is friendly to beginners, at the same time challenging enough to bring you back for more and more.
