Are you ready for some high octane Schmup action? Then get ready because Velocity 2x is exactly what you need! It’s a shoot ’em up with a lot of elements from old-school arcade game, built by adding new elements for a 21st release that expands on everything.
Velocity 2X is a special game. You star as Kai Tana and pilot a powerful ship that you must use to escape from your captors. What makes this game very different from the regular games in the gneres are the puzzle aspects and the platforming sections. There will be areas where you dock your ship and need to quickly explore in a 2D plane as you search for the locks for gates that are keeping your ship from progressing through the area. Later on you’ll be able to drop a portal and have your ship backtrack to the portal if you reach a dead end or have not been able to unlock all the locks, or to take a different path that will grant you access to hidden items and other goodies.
The big hook on the game is perfecting each of the levels. You will need to save all survivors, collect all the crystals and finish each level within a certain time limit to perfect it. Doing this for all of them will eventually grant you access to one of the hardest Platinum trophies on PS4 and Vita!
