This Color-Swapping Runner Is Not A Tron Game, But It Should Be

Considering the overall lack of quality Tron games since the time of the first film, I'm willing to give Hope This Works Games' upcoming neon red and blue Android and iOS free-runner Polara a couple of identity discs and call it a day.

It's a little bit color-shifting shooter Ikaruga, with a hint of color-shifting action platformer Outland. You've got red, you've got blue, which you survive depends on the colour of your machine-like glow. Only a machine intelligence could come up with such a convoluted security system and still leave enough room for an iPhone or Android gamer to slip through.

Polara comes to the app stores on October 11. End of line.

    You obviously never played Tron 2.0 on PC! Seriously that game was amazing. Shit I was playing it last year because I wanted to revisit it and it was still pretty damn awesome to play. None of this Tron:Legacy stuff of ISOs and junk, instead you travelled through routers and PDAs and got on the internet while trying not to be destroyed by the corruption.

    Anyway that looks like a pretty fun side-scroller with an ingenious idea behind it.
