REVIEW

The PixelJunk series is king of the PlayStation Network. With three groundbreaking titles released in less than two years, Q-Games has surprised players and critics again and again with new concepts and an unparalleled level of polish while simultaneously proving that 2D gaming is far from dead. Over a year after the first three games’ releases, PixelJunk Shooter arrives, and it is nothing short of spectacular.

Don’t be fooled by the simple name “Shooter”, as it’s anything but a typical shoot-em-up. Though Shooter depends on standard “shmup” gameplay for survival, the game really shines as a shooter-platformer hybrid loaded with elemental puzzles and an excellent fluid dynamics engine.
