    It may have a simple premise, but this PlayStation 4 title is one of the most exciting space shooters of the year.

    The guys at Mixed Bag are definitely showing some promise, and Futuridium is proof of that. A fast paced, colorful and intelligent arcade game that deserves to be played.

    The levels are quite varied and imaginative, but the credit system is very punishing, although certainly attractive for those looking for a tough time.

    A good arcade game with imaginative levels and a retro looking.

    It is fun and addictive, but the difficulty hasn't been properly balanced, and sometime feels that it just tries to artificially make the game longer.

    Futuridium is a game for those who can invest in the grind of simply 'getting the job done'. Taken on those terms, Futuridium becomes a challenge to be completed, retro looking enough to be in vogue, yet with mechanics that inhibit a broader mainstream appeal.

It is aIf you remember Uridium on the Commodore 64 and loved it buy this game. It's an excellent modern take that doesn't spoil the memory. It is a little tricky but really well put together. A modern classic that so many indy games claim to be ... This delivers. Great controls, good visuals and cross buy. Plays just as well on the vita. For me it's way better than resogun or velocity.

If you think this is Star Fox you are very wrong. Doesn't have much randomness. It is more of a figure out the best pattern for a high score and try to execute it. Replayabilty might seem to be limited since these are fixed levels but you aren't going to master them because it is pretty hard. Still a lot of fun. The visuals looked like they might be annoying in screenshots but I found it to actually be really pleasing and very unique. Dubstep WARNING! The music may not be to everyone's liking and I actually had to flip a few annoying songs but luckily it gives the ability to change the track with a button during the game. Vita version runs well and loads quickly and it actually seems to control easier. Seems more tuned to Vita sticks than the PS4 but you might feel differently. Cross buy so you can try it yourself.

    I was hoping for this game to be the next fun arcade shooter reaching to the heights of Resogun and Velocity 2X. Futuridium EP Deluxe does notI was hoping for this game to be the next fun arcade shooter reaching to the heights of Resogun and Velocity 2X. Futuridium EP Deluxe does not join the ranks of these great games! I would say the game actually resembles Star Fox 64 more than anything. The difficulty to get all of the medals is definitely there. The fun isn't quite. For those interested in trophies 1 gold (good luck with this one!), 2 silver, and a handful of bronze. I want to give this a try on the Vita and see if it works better there. For now, this game is passable unless you are a die hard fan of the genre. Expand

This game has little variety, it's very challenging if you want to 100%, and even though sometimes you have no clue where you're about to shoot because there is no cursor, I still didn't feel as if the controls were clunky. Not a must-have in any sense of the word, but nice to keep at a low price or free (it's already passed on the PS+). Expand
