Japanese developer Q-Games should be sued under the Trade Descriptions Act. Downloadable PSN game PixelJunk Shooter, the fourth in the quirky and varied series, is much more than a shooter. It would be better titled: PixelJunk Shooter but Mainly a Puzzler, with Great Physics.
While shooting is the game's central mechanic - the shooting of lasers, homing missiles, jets of magma and water - it is not a side-on shooter in the traditional sense. It does not rely on twitch reflexes or android-like hand-eye coordination. It does not rely on the kind of skill you see nutcases showcase on arcade "shmups".
