Altern8 Announces Cosmos X2 for DS
Altern8 recently announced the upcoming release of their second DS title. They are publishing the Saturine Games-developed side scrolling shooter Cosmos X2. The game aims to deliver classic shoot 'em up game play, a genre that has been much neglected on Nintendo's handheld.
Their press release highlights that Cosmos X2 enables you to 'work your way through hoards of space ships and space debris, defend the outer colonies, and do your job protecting the universe'. It goes on to highlight game play elements such as 'maps, radar, displays, and many other features making good use of the dual screens of the DS'.
With these general details and a handful of screen shots, it remains to be seen if Cosmos X2 can be fleshed out into an exciting experience. As, even for established brands such as Nanostray, this has so far been somewhat elusive.
We await the promised 'full details [that] will be released over the coming weeks of both this game, and the other future console titles from Alten8'.
