Firebase’s side-scrolling shooter Orbitron: Revolution has turned up on the personal computer format, over here. It’s a fine-looking piece of retromancy, although I am have been playing it and am not fully convinced. While the pace of the Defender-meets-Uridium-on-a-ring sort of play is excellently paced and suitable explody, I found the visuals a bit tricky to read. Perhaps it’s down to the game being more slanted towards TV play than Jim’s-face-in-monitor play, but I found myself losing track of what was going on from time to time. That said, I am rubbish at retro-styled shooters, so perhaps the talents of those humans with brains attuned to side-scrolling will have a better time. Update: It’s also on Impulse.

Blue notes that Firebase’s exquisite scrolling shooter Orbitron: Revolution is making its way to the PC system for explosions and fun times. There’s no date yet, but the devs boasts that they have the PC version running at 60fps at 1920×1080. That is moderately fast! Like an elite frame-rate making game thing, or something. What? It is early on Saturday. Look: Orbitron: Revolution, which has already appeared on the console boxes for some reason, is a very pretty curved Defender/Uridium sort of thing going on. Those are things we like.
