Noticed this mentioned over at Rllmuk, but it appears that PomPom are reworking their classic award-winning early-noughties Defender/Uridium-esque shooter Space Tripper (Which is no longer on Pom’s site, but has a demo here). Little is known about Astro Tripper other than it’s got fourteen levels, will be available “soon” and has a trailer which you’ll find nestling beneath the cut…
This reminds me of the time when I got Ste Curran to review Space Tripper for PCG. He gave it 92% and ranted until his little black heart exploded, and precipitated all manner of entertaining debates. And then later, with PomPom’s other game Mutant Storm, I started yelping about Crystalline Attack Sperm to Jim. Ah, those were the days.
Does make me wonder why PomPom are reworking their old material rather than trying something else, however. Hope they’re okay.
