The PSN is home to some of the most original and entertaining little titles of the generation, and we've already seen some excellent efforts in the PixelJunk franchise.
Well, yet another is prepared to hit the Store next week: it's PixelJunk Shooter , which will be available to buy on December 10. You can view what we consider to be the launch interview at the PlayStation Blog, where SCEE's Jem Alexander speaks with Q Games President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert about the unique old-school-style shooter. You get a great look at the gameplay in that trailer and as you can see, it takes the concept of 2D shooting and brings it to a new level; the concepts in these games are always simple, but they're also both ingenious and extremely well implemented. If you've played any of the PixelJunk titles in the past, you know how original – and how addictive – they typically are, so you'll definitely want to snag this one next week. Granted, it now has to battle recently released gems like Braid and Trine but this is further proof of the diverse quality that can be found online. Anybody think we'll have to give PixelJunk some sort of downloadable lifetime achievement award in like 10 years time?
Anyway, watch the video and decide for yourself. If you're not familiar, it's likely to surprise you…
