Velocity 2X

FuturLab has released some pre-alpha footage of Velocity 2X. This 2D platforming/shoot’em up hybrid switches back and forth between the two as seen in the video. Take a look.

As the title implies, Velocity 2X is a sequel to Velocity, also developed by FuturLab. It was a fairly unconventional shoot’em up. Although it does autoscroll in one direction, the levels are actually much bigger than what can be seen on screen. You have to explore the levels to find power-ups, bonuses and whatnot, but the game continues to slowly scroll the screen towards the end. Moreover, blinking, or short distance teleportation, plays a major role of the game with most parts of the level being walled off.

In Velocity 2X, most of these elements are translated into a platformer. The heroine, the pilot of the ship, is also able to teleport through thin walls and wields a gun she can shoot at all angles. Thankfully, these areas do not autoscroll like the the shoote’em up areas. It appears she will have to explore one area in one mode of gameplay so she can progress in another area in the other mode of gameplay.

Velocity 2X is slated for a PSN release for the PS4 and the Vita with a 2014 release window.

 

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?
