A new take on the Arcade Shooter genre

santiainen | Nov. 13, 2013 | Review of PixelJunk Shooter - PC

PixelJunk Shooter is a game developed by PixelJunk, originally released exclusively on the PlayStation 3 and later ported to the PC, Linux and Mac, exclusively on the Steam platform. PixelJunk Shooter is PixelJunk's new take on the classic arcade shooter titles, mostly based around fluid physics and physics based puzzles. PixelJunk Shooter consists of 3 episodes with a boss at the end of each episode. All of the episodes are filled with exciting new puzzles and new fluids and gadgets to play and experiment around with. The game also includes a local two player mode in case you want to play the game with a friend. And if you're the score kind of player, there's also a Score Attack mode in the game, and online leaderboards to compete in. All in all, the game is a great addition your game collection, and I really don't see how they could of improved on it... Except they did improve on it, in PixelJunk Shooter 2, that is yet to be released on Steam.
