, an up and coming ID@Xbox game developed by Serenity Forge, has released some more gameplay information to help make sense of its crazy and yet addictive gameplay. If you missed our previous coverage
of when this game was announced, here's the quick announcement trailer to get you pumped and ready!
is designed to "put a key twist on arcade shooters", and bring you a game that's a blast to pick up and play anytime, easy to learn yet hard to master. Like a lot of arcade shooters, you'll be put into an arena to face off against multitudes of enemies but with a twist, you don't have any weapons at all! You'll have to rely on your precise skills at dodging and the ability to absorb your foes by colliding into them. Just make sure to not
try to absorb their projectiles and weapon edges, or it may end badly for you.Pixel Galaxy
will have large amounts of different enemies, and each one has its own different kind of attack. If you latch onto one of these enemies, it will become an attacker for you. Just don't be too eager to dispose of them too quickly, at least not until you can assimilate more of them to help. One thing to keep in mind while taking on enemies as minions to help fight, is the size and space, as Pixel Galaxy
takes place on a fairly small map. Do you absorb as many as you can, trying to stay protected for as long as possible or do you add each ship carefully so you have more room to maneuver around the stage while making efficient use of the small area you are given?
The game will have a score based system, taking down enemies and surviving for as long as you can will earn you points. As each game of Pixel Galaxy
can be a short as one minute or as long as ten minutes on a good run, chasing previous scores and settings new records can be rather addicting. With each session being frantic and exciting, lots of enemies to dispose of and plenty of options to keep you coming back for more, you'll find no two playthroughs the same.
Finally as the name implies, "Pixel Galaxy
has a very minimalist, pixel-based art style with an old-school soundtrack." This game is designed to be a "pick-up-and-play affair," being perfect for a quick game if you're lacking for time or even something to do to de-stress after having a long day.Pixel Galaxy
doesn't have a release date just yet, but it is due out later this year.
