Developer T.A.C.S. Games has sent PSNStores some screenshots of their first PlayStation Mobile game, Radiant Flux. Its a nod to the 8-bit NES era of gaming with a sprinkle of hard-as-hell shooter.
Bullet Hell is what the genre is commonly referred to as, but there is also SHMUPS (shoot’em ups). I’m not quite sure where Radiant Flux stands, maybe between, but we’re told that its very hard.
The 2D side-scrolling shooter comes to PSM with 60 stages of flying bullets and lasers. It will also feature a cool TV Mode where the game game looks as though its wrapped around an old CRT television with scan lines too.
While we [consumers] wait for the inevitable Vita system software v2.0 to release, PSM developers like Thom Hopper at T.A.C.S. Games must wait similarly for PSM v1.0 before they can submit their games. There still isn’t a set date for this, but PSM is supposed to come out of beta by the end of the month.
