What Is The Deal With PixelJunk SideScroller?

You may have deduced this from various other posts from yours truly, but I'm a huge PixelJunk/Q Games fan. So when I heard that an upcoming release from the team had gone under the rader, not even featuring in Sony's E3 conference, I had to see what I could dig up.

PixelJunk SideScroller, like most of its other games, does exactly what it says on the tin. It appears to be a sidescroller of sorts - possibly in the vein of games like R-Type. The aesthetic appears to be simple, bold and clean - not unlike other games from the PixelJunk range. Not that that's a bad thing.

In fact, the game looks disarmingly similar to PixelJunk shooter - down to the fact that water appears to be an integral part of the level design. We hope and expect to see a point of difference at some point in the future.

PixelJunk SideScroller doesn't have a firm release date yet, but co-op gameplay is confirmed.


    Where the hell is PixelJunk Dungeons or whatever it was? That sounded way cooler

      Yep. Agree. Really wanted that game.

        Tell me about it.. Shooter was good, and I didn't really mind Shooter 2 because.. Well, because it was another PIxelJunk game. But now another shooting game?

        *totally knows that deep down he'll buy it anyway*

          it looks a lot like a 2 player version of the final level that shooter 2 had, so hopefully it's just an xpac thing to tie us over till dungeons

    Any PixelJunk game is great, I wish they'd do a sequel to PJM.

    PixelJunk Eden sequel is required!!!

    Spent way too many hours playing that game, those last few levels on the vanilla edition and the Encore were just devilish!

    Reminds me of stage 1 of Salamander, in the "2 player horizontal shmup with organic looks" department.
