Futuridium EP Deluxe Heading To PS Vita

Futuridium PS Vita

The two-man indie development team, MixedBag Srl based in Turin, Italy is bringing their fast paced shooter Futuridium to the PS Vita in an all-new enhanced incarnation in the shape of Futuridium EP Deluxe…

As a match made in heaven, the fast paced action of Futuridium is a perfect fit for the awesome PS Vita analog stick and controls and the colourful, psychedelic graphic pops out from that gorgeous screen directly into your eyes. Death Star trench run at full speed meets old school difficulty and modern fast paced action with unique gameplay mechanics, all turned up to eleven in the Deluxe version, with added levels, play modes, enemies and mechanics. The music as always is a central part of the experience and the 45-minutes long soundtrack will be enhanced with new, exclusive music tracks, for over 60 minutes of music. Oh, and you’ll really feel those 60-frames-per-seconds. Ohhhh, yes.

Futuridium EP is a retro fast paced shoot’em up with a modern twist, that was inspired by one of the greatest 8bit C64 shoot em up of all time, Uridium by Andrew Braybrook. In Futuridium you are a lone starship pilot who gets lost in a dimensional loop just before a big space battle: with a limited and constantly depleting energy bar, your only hope is to fly as fast as possible over enormous space dreadnoughts and destroy all the cyan power cubes, replenishing your energy tank and revealing the dreadnought’s power core, which must be destroyed to move on to the next ship. You have no power-ups and limited control over your speed so you can only count on your reflexes, your dual lasers, the nimbleness of you starship and… the ability to turn 180° on the spot, an essential ability to navigate on the intricate passages on the dreadnoughts. Three parts hi-speed actions, one part hi-speed puzzle game: the gameplay is heavily score based, you can gain big multiplier destroying cubes and chaining cubes together to get huge score boost. You can play it safe, but only taking big risks and learning the right path on the dreadnoughts will lead you to the top of the online leaderboards.
