Frankly, we don’t really have to tell you much about Shatter in that you already know it’s a fantastic game. We gave the title a glowing review and its soundtrack even made the cut for the top 7 PS3 soundtracks. That’s how good Shatter is. It should come as no surprise then that it makes #17 on our Top 20 PSN titles.
Read on to find out why Shatter is #17 in our Top 20 PSN titles…
The PlayStation Network has come a very long way in the last five years.
Believe it or not, there was a time when merely a handful of games were available on the PlayStation Store, and only a fraction of those were actually worth playing. However, nowadays, Sony’s online service is full to bursting with quality titles that have no doubt had your virtual wallet begging for mercy on more than one occasion.
Shatter was one of the most notable games released on the PSN last year and it finally making its way to PC later this month. With it, the game is bringing new modes in addition to multiplayer. The good news is that these modes will be making their way to the PS3 version at some point in the future.
We go hands-on with the PC version of Shatter to bring your our impressions of these new gameplay modes; Endless Mode, Endless Co-op Multiplayer, Time Attack, and Time Attack Co-op Multiplayer.
Shatter is coming to PC later this month and bringing a bunch of new modes with it. In addition to the usual fanfare, Endless Mode, Endless Co-op Multiplayer, Time Attack, and Time Attack Co-op Multiplayer will also be included in the PC version. What does this have to do with the PS3 you ask?
IGN named Shatter the Best PSN Game of 2009 and to celebrate Sidhe is running a holiday special where you can pick of the official soundtrack for only $1.
We’ll also be giving away a digital copy of the soundtrack right here so read on to win…
Gameplay, graphics, storyline; these have always been the defining element in video games. Not to be outdone, the score of a game is becoming equally important.
Below are some of the games that have left lasting impressions, sometimes even more so than the gameplay itself. Rhythm games, such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band, are not included as they revolve around music, and let’s face it, we already know how awesome their soundtracks are.
E3 was a momentous event that housed tons of gaming big screens, booth babes, and flashy lights and sounds. Tucked away between the two halls of the convention, right next to the Into the Pixel Gallery, was a lone setup. There were no booth babes, no flashy gimmicks, and just one game. The game was Shatter and its developer; Sidhe.
Finally, almost two months later, the game has been released and we were excited to finish what we had started back at E3. You play as BAT1138, a slave to the machine empire, forced to harvest energy for his masters. After a breakdown, he becomes self aware and breaks free from his prison. In order to escape, BAT must successfully traverse the ten levels of the factory and defeat the bosses at the end of each.
We had the opportunity to talk with Mario Wynands, the Managing Director of Sidhe, about their upcoming PSN title, Shatter. The game, developed and published for the PlayStation Network by the team, is a re-imaging of the retro brick breaking genre. What sets it apart from the rest is the ability to ‘suck and blow,’ giving the player more control over the course of the ball.
In our exclusive interview with the team, Mario talk about the creation of BAT1138, our hero of the story (yes, there is a story involved), and what makes Shatter so different for all the other games out there. By the end of it all, you’ll be itching for some brick breaking action.
If youâ€™ve watched any of the trailers for Shatter, youâ€™ve probably heard the amazing musical score that accompanies the retro gameplay with a twist. In an exclusive interview with PS3 Attitude, Mario Wynards, Managing Director of Sidhe, has stated that the game includes â€œover 90 minutes of high quality original music.â€
We are excited about the upcoming brick-breaking game that is Shatter from Sidhe. After watching the initial video and then giving it a test run at E3, the game is shaping up to be a hit on the PSN. Come July 27th, you’ll be able to download the game exclusively on the PSN for $7.99.
The Breakout genre of games have always been popular. There have been tons of different remakes and re-imagining of the game yet people continue to flock to it. The latest comes from Sidhe (surprisingly pronounced as ‘she’), titled Shatter. This version, however, is like no other brick-breaking game we’ve seen.
Sidhe, the creative minds behind GripShift, have revealed their next PSN game due for release later on this year. The new game, titled ‘Shatter’, is billed as a retro take on the block breaking game.
With new effects and modes attached to the retro attitude Sidhe are taking with this game, we are certainly curious to find out more.
Handy really, seeing as there’s a video of the game available for your viewing pleasure!
