You know that scene at the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey, where Dave Bowman went speeding through a tunnel of light and nothing made a whole lot of sense? Have you ever wanted that experience to be made into a video game? If so, congratulations, because Sony’s latest PSN title looks to be the closest thing you’ll get short of an ill-timed movie tie-in. Dyad puts you in control of a tentacled ball of light, as it accelerates through psychedelic tunnels of colour, “hooking” enemies along the way. It plays like a strange combination of Tempest and Rez, but unfortunately, lacks the originality and charm that either titles possess.
