[Review] Sideway New York + Giveaway!

Hey everyone, Baba Booey here with yet another review of one awesome game. So let me start off a tad bit different than usual. Let’s take a trip to the past, mid 1980′s. I know for some of you that may be reading this, you weren’t even a thought at that time, but for the rest of us, we can remember a time when platforming games where king. That’s all we played; the NES did platform games so well; Mega Man, Contra, and Castlevania to name a few. As the years went on, they became watered down and mundane without innovation, without soul or substance, and then the platform genre started to die as games became more advanced and we soon forgot about the genre that dominated the game scene…Until now!!

Now I know what you are saying, “But Baba we have some great platformers already, what about Little Big Planet?” Well yes I can understand that, but understand games like Little Big Planet have large development budgets, the PSN Minis don’t count, and I have yet to play a decent PSN platformer title, but please take into account that this is my opinion. So enough of the blah blah, why don’t we get into why this game is so great.

Sideway: New York Coming to PSN

Sideway: New York, is an upcoming PSN exclusive 2D platformer from the Canadian development studio Playbrains. In Sideway, you take on the role of Nox, a graffiti artist who gets sucked into his own artwork on the side of a building. The story is rather simple; Nox will be chasing an evil graffiti artist named Fume, making his way through different platforming challenges as an actual piece of spray paint art. The game offers 2D platforming in a 3D world, demonstrating a unique experience that I am personally very excited about. Just check the following gameplay trailer …

The official PlayStation Blog managed to get an interview with Playbrains director, Scott Simpson, in which he discussed the influence behind Sideway; the game, coop, and much more …

Our creative director Mike Burns was on a trip to NY one time and was just taken by all the graffiti and looking at it as art and not vandalism. The idea started in his head about living inside the graffiti world

Sideway: New York will be available on PSN October 11th for $9.99, so make sure you pick that up!
