1UP: PowerUp Forever Updated Impressions Preview

You begin as a simple spaceship armed with a lowly dual cannon, steering your way through randomly generated, wraparound levels as you blast abstract alien foes. Kill enough baddies, and the end-of-stage "Guardian" will appear -- best enough of these deadly adversaries and you'll find your ship subtly evolving, changing in shape and amassing more powerful weapons (lasers, mines, and bombs) and abilities (such as a shield that you can pivot using the right analog stick). Your ship isn't the only thing morphing, though: The entire playfield bends and warps as you progress, and the camera naturally zooms in and out to offer a better view of the constantly shifting action.

The story is too old to be commented.
