StarDrone launches on PSN & PlayStation Move Next Week, Discount for Plus Members

We are excited to introduce StarDrone, a game designed with a perfect blend of high-speed physics and pinball action, with strategic elements of break-out and object collection. StarDrone is set to be released on the PlayStation Store this Tuesday, April 5th, we are thrilled to let you know that it’s a part of the Spring Fever campaign.

From a top-down perspective, you pilot a spacecraft across the galaxy, collecting pieces of Equilibrix in order to restore the balance of the universe and stop the expansion of evil G-Noids. To add to the challenging gameplay, your spacecraft is always in motion and you don’t have any direct control over it, only a grapple-hook which you can use to push and pull your craft into the orbit of specific nodes located all over the game field.

Cause your attackers to crash with rapid speed while collecting gems and power-up enhancements. Overcome perilous hazards and elude zillions of enemies in an effort to complete each stage with a record score. With simple gesture controls and unique, intuitive gameplay mechanics, StarDrone is friendly to beginners, at the same time challenging enough to bring you back for more.

StarDrone is created for PlayStation Move motion controller, but it plays well on the DualShock 3 also. However, Sony’s motion controller is the more precise method of control, as you can intuitively point at a specific node with an on-screen cursor and pressing the Move button to hook onto it.

With 50+ levels of gameplay, each with its own leaderboard with friends filter, you can engage in intergalactic contests with people from all over the world. Additionally, 3D TV support is planned via an upcoming game update to give StarDrone an added level of realism.

StarDrone will become available on Tuesday from the North American PlayStation Store for $7.99, and there is special discount for PlayStation Plus subscribers – your launch price is only $4.99!

This looks interesting and because the Move is supported and the price is right, I think I’ll have to purchase the game.

Am I the ONLY one to think that this is just a bad april fools joke? Seriously, all the genres packed into the first paragraph should be a sign(that, and the $7.50 price tag for something that looks like a flash game). If it ISN’T a joke, and i see it on the store, I’m still not gonna buy it.
