The Costa Rican developer Fair Play Labs have revealed that Color Guardians, a new action title where side-scrolling action meets tricky, multi-faceted obstacles and objectives, will launch simultaneously for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and the PlayStation®Vita on April 14, 2015. Color Guardians, a game that challenges players to navigate a series of increasingly difficult stages while dodging hazards and changing their own color on the fly, will release digitally for all systems, giving players everywhere a chance to experience the excitement and challenges on their platform of choice.

In Color Guardians, the world has been robbed of its color by the thief Krogma, and it’s up to the three Guardians – Rod, Lia, and Grock – to restore it. Players must guide the Guardians through dozens of challenging, puzzling levels to spread life back to the universe, managing several facets of gameplay at once. Not only must the Guardians jump and dodge incoming hazards and obstacles, they must also switch between three “lanes” of running along the world’s Z-axis… while also swapping their own colors on the fly to match the world around them. Color Guardians brings together simple game mechanics in a unique combination to provide an experience all its own.
The game is packed with special features:
- A New Combination: Simple mechanics come together in a game that is easy to learn but challenging to master; jump, switch lanes, and swap colors to stay ahead of the stages
- Colorful Characters: Restore color to the Guardians’ universe across dozens of worlds and over 70 challenging stages, realized in beautiful graphic detail
- Ever-growing Challenges: Hunt through stages for hidden unlockables including music, art, character models and more; challenge friends’ scores on the leaderboards and improve your performance, and earn your way up to a Platinum Trophy on PlayStation platforms!
The game’s 70 levels are made up of 50 main levels plus 15 hidden bonus levels and 5 boss stages and players are given three playable characters to choose from. To add extra longevity to the gameplay, it also offers a range of unlockables available via in-game challenges to be discovered including music, concept art, renders and 3D models. As you would expect, the game supports online leaderboards.
The game will be available as a Cross Buy and offers Cross Save support but no word has been given yet as to whether it will support the PlayStation TV.
