PixelJunk SideScroller Announced

Q-Games have today announced a new title from their beloved PixelJunk series. What we initially thought might be PJ Shooter 3, has since turned out to be a new IP, PixelJunk SideScroller.

These guys love giving us their take on multiple gaming genres and side-scrolling shooters should be a piece of cake for them.

PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe (Review)

After becoming something of a cult classic on the PlayStation Network it was only a matter of time before somebody realised this would work even better on PSP.

There are canons, freeze guns, Telsa (electricity spewing towers), mortars, flamethrowers, crossbows, anti-air guns, lasers and electric barriers. Continue reading PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe (Review)
