Striking Soon On PSN

An independent game developer by the name of Tiki Games has a new arcade shooter for the Playstation 3 and to be released over the PSN, Novastrike. With the release of Novastrike Tiki Games claims to bring innovation to the classic top down shooter genre.

Along with constant updates and additions to keep gameplay fresh they offer no-rail free-roaming flight in game. We should be seeing Novastrike soon, sometime in early '08. Read about all of the features and watch the debut trailer after the break.

NOVASTRIKE is scheduled for release via the PLAYSTATION Network in early 2008.


*Seven expansive challenging stages driven by objective-based goals

*Free-roaming flight: there aren't any rails here, so players can fly in any direction

*Progressive weapon acquisition and upgrade system: as the player collects weapon drops from enemy ships the weapons themselves become available to the Scythe -- there are nine base weapon systems, each with three subsequent upgrade levels

*Air and ground targets: two separate weapon systems allow the player to combat both air and ground opponents

*Multi-sectioned enemies where individual components can be destroyed; for example, carriers have hangars that launch fighters -- these hangars can be destroyed independently of destroying the Carrier, preventing the Carrier from launching additional fighters

*Multitude of enemies and environments: players combat enemy fighters, bombers, kamikazes, aces, carriers, and destroyers, all leading to an end-boss fight

*You're not alone: friendly fighters, bombers, and destroyers will aid you in your efforts to vanquish the Draelus invasion

*DualShock 3 support

*Continuing support: Tiki Games will be developing additional content for NOVASTRIKE throughout 2008
