Sierra released Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved, the super-stylistic arcade shooter from independent developer Lucid Games, for the PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system.
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved takes the classic arcade action of the Geometry Wars franchise to new frontiers with three-dimensional level shapes on which to play. The core single-player Adventure mode contains 50 distinct challenges – plus an additional 40 stages available in Ultimate mode – and players can apply unique tactics to each level by choosing one of six upgradeable companion drones and six upgradeable super abilities. The game also includes a Hardcore mode with no drones or supers for Geometry Wars purists, as well as six Classic mode stages inspired by past titles in the series.
Players can square off against one another in online competitive multiplayer, or vie for high scores individually on friend and community leaderboards. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved on PlayStation®Vita also includes local co-op with an inventive twist, allowing two people to play together on the same display by facing opposite each other and using the controls on their respective sides of the device.
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved is now available as a digital title on PlayStation Vita for $14.99 via the PlayStation Store; it is free to download for all PlayStation Plus subscribers right now as part of July’s Instant Game Collection. This game is rated E (Everyone) by the ESRB.
