Excerpt: Having you ever heard the phrase: "seeing is believing?" Well in terms of Stardrone: "playing is believing." This downloadable Playstation 3 video game that works with Move is a strange hybrid.
Summary: There are a lot of genres in video games that provide short bursts of fun for those who lack the attention span to sit through a 40+ hour narrative (myself included). What happens if you take a little bit of each of those genres and blend them all together into a single game?
Summary: If you've been playing games for a long time, you might remember an old NES title called Clu Clu Land. It starred a strange little fish-lady named Bubbles that constantly swam her way through a playing field, trying to find hidden gold ingots, as well as avoid traps and obstacles.
Pros: Colorful visuals, Easy to learn how to play, Lots of potential for replay and mastery
Cons: Core gameplay mechanics just aren't that interesting, Certain levels are painfully difficult
Excerpt: While I love PSN for something deep, like Flower , or chock full of options, like Pixeljunk Shooter 2 , simple downloadable games can be great fun as well. They just need their own gameplay hook, like being able to push and pull the ball in Shatter , or compacting trash in Trash Panic .
Conclusion: Overall, despite its obvious replay value, at £6.29, StarDrone is slightly difficult to recommend. However, until 5 th April, PlayStation Plus subscribers can take advantage of a 50% price cut, and grab it for a bargain £3.15.
Excerpt: StarDrone, the latest downloadable from Beatshapers, was something of a surprise . It seemed to land out of the blue, with little build up and even less fanfare, onto the PlayStation Network Store.
Pros: Great visuals., Responsive controls, perfect for the interesting mechanics., Compelling gameplay.
Cons: Move support makes the game a touch too difficult., Music sometimes seems to loop awkwardly.
