Life of Pixel and MegaBlast en route to PSM
Developer Super Icon has graced this site once before about a little platformer known as Life of Pixel. Now we know where the PlayStation Mobile game is at in the development stages, as well as another PSM title in the works called MegaBlast.
A press release from the developer tells us that both PSM games have been in development for the past four months. Life of Pixel is expected to release on January 9, 2013. It won’t be long now before we can all take a platforming romp through worlds designed to look like they are from the Atari 2600, ZX81, ZX Spectrum, C64, CPC, BBC, and NES.
MegaBlast is described as another old school gaming experience, but this time its a frenetic arcade shooter inspired by the classic space shooters genre. Think Space Invaders or Galaga, but with updated graphics and effects for PSM. MegaBlast intends to challenge players by getting high scores and uses a military ranking system.
Super Icon is performing the final spit and polish to MegaBlast before it can be submitted to Sony QA for approval. I’ve also contacted the developer to get more info on the game including the presence of leaderboards.
