Wired Hands On: Keeping Cool in PixelJunk Shooter

The game might be called PixelJunk Shooter, but your real objective isn't to shoot - it's to stay away from the heat.

In the latest of Q-Games' PixelJunk brand of downloadable PlayStation 3 games, playable on the Tokyo Game Show floor, the action moves to outer space and has you rescuing astronauts and recovering gemstones from underground caves. There are enemies to shoot (hence the name) but the scalding heat of magma is the most dangerous foe in the game. Manipulating the environment is crucial: Water cools your ship and neutralizes the lava.
