The great PlayStation Network shooter Super Stardust HD may be approaching its fourth birthday in June, but developer Housemarque isn't finished with the twin-stick addiction just yet. It's bringing something new to the shooter this (northern) spring with "Impact".
Impact mode, according to Sony Computer Entertainment America, "twists the game rules" by outfitting your space ship with an "experimental new matter-to-energy boost engine technology, which means once you activate the boost, you can stay in boost as long as you can hit meteors and enemies with it." It's described as "the most fast-paced and adrenaline inducing add-on to the game yet".
Perhaps not the easiest thing to illustrate in screen shots, as Super Stardust HD typically looks like a constant explosion, but if you've ever boosted in this PlayStation 3 game and seen the showers of rock that fill the screen, you probably get the idea.
