Q-Games have been ultra-busy finishing PixelJunk Shooter 2; unfortunately it took a little longer than expected but that’s because of a number of (very cool) reasons!

Rather than just do a simple battling-type system, they created a special cat-and-mouse type game which has you and the enemy take turns as cat or mouse, either scouring the stage for the other player or running away from him. The trick being that the “mouse” is invisible to the other player unless he views you directly, so you can sneak around collecting the survivors and transporting them to your base. Each survivor that goes into your base is an extra point. But watch out: When it is the other player’s turn to play mouse they can steal them back if they are cunning enough.

Q-Games have created a whole new set of three worlds with new liquids, puzzles and some brilliant new enemies and bosses and tons of new weapons including homing missiles and the “Time Slip” item that rewinds the positions of both players for a few seconds.

Music for the game is by the BAFTA award-nominated hip hop duo High Frequency Bandwidth, composers of the score for PixelJunk Shooter. A release date for the downloadable Playstation Network title has not been announced.
