Shmup-o-Platformer Velocity 2X Comes To PC

Zappo!

With a mix of vertical scrolling shoot ’em up and side-on shooty platforming (not to mention some natty art), Velocity Ultra picked up a fair few more fans when it came from consoles to PC in 2013. Now creators FuturLab have brought over its sequel, Velocity 2X [official site].

The PC version comes with its console DLC packs and whatnot but look, here’s all you need to know: it now has daily challenges.

I’m still enthralled by daily challenges, those chances every day to shine like a diamond and show the world how brilliant I am. Or to totally cock it up and let all my chum know I’m a chuffing great fool.

Anyway, onto Velocity 2X more specifically. Like before, it has plenty of scrolling shmup action with a teleporting spaceship. Then you dock your deathcapsule and get to run around on foot blasting everything with zapguns. I haven’t played it myself, but have heard good things.

Velocity 2X is £14.99 on Steam. Hey, look, it’s published by Sierra – well, the ‘indie’ arm Activision recently activated under that reanimated name. I welcome them bringing more games like this over.

This here trailer’s from the console launch a year ago:
