CES: Snapshot, a Vita photo puzzle platformer  photo



Sony showed off Retro Affect's upcoming Vita/PS3 title Snapshot at CES this week. This nice-looking PC port uses photography as a puzzle element. A robot named Pic has a camera that he can use to snap pictures of objects in the game's 2D side-scrolling stages. These images can then be pasted elsewhere in the level to do things like reach new areas or solve puzzles.

Like in any platformer, the left stick moves your character, and the X button jumps. In Snapshot, the right stick controls a frame that can be freely positioned anywhere to snap a shot. The R button captures the picture and the L button places a copy of it wherever you'd like. In early puzzles you'll snap a picture of a crate and then drop it back into the world when needed to reach high platforms. Sony says that puzzles become more complex, even working object momentum into the mix.

As of now there's no set release date, but Sony says to expect it on PSN soon.

Inspired by the likes of Earthworm Jim and Mega Man, Nefarious sticks with platformer tropes, with one inversion: you are kidnapping princesses. And each princess you kidnap changes how your character controls and ...more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
