Back in August of last year we talked about a great looking racing game that also happens to feature puzzle elements called Positron. Well the developers have announced that they will be launching beta sign-ups for those of you interested in getting in and testing out this rather slick looking Tron inspired game.
For those of you who missed our previous coverage regarding Positron, here is the quick and dirty description. As you may expect from a Tron inspired game, you will be racing on light cycles through tracks made up of Tron style grid visuals with all the glowy lines you can handle. Race tracks look like they are more maze-like then actual race tracks.
There will be three different arenas to race in:
Based on the classic Arcade games this mode sees you battling against enemy vehicles that are trying to destroy you by forcing you to crash in to their trails or in to the arena’s walls. It is your goal to do the same to these enemies and remove them from the arena. Featuring 12 unique arena designs and layouts the levels progressively get more intricate and more difficult to navigate while also offering more opportunities to take out your enemies.
Your only goal in maze mode is to reach the end of an intricate maze laid out in the arena. There are no enemies to deal with and your only goal is to reach the exit as quickly as possible. Once you have memorized the path to the exit it is then your goal to complete the maze without crashing even a single time and to share your fastest times with the online community. The maze mode offers 3 difficulty levels, each featuring 12 levels with increasingly complicated mazes to complete.
Somewhat similar to maze mode, in race mode you must complete laps of a circuit laid out in the arena. The trick is however to avoid hitting your own trail (and the arena walls) on subsequent laps of the tracks! This mode features 12 levels of increasing complexity making navigation more difficult as you progress. Ultimately your goal is to complete the required number of laps as quickly as possible and share your fastest times with the online community.
Positron was slated to be released onto Playstation Mobile when we last reported on it but it seems as though it could very well be released right onto Google Play as well. According to the developer’s Twitter account, beta sign-ups will be going live sometime during this weekend so if you’re interested in getting involved, it would be good to keep an eye on both the developer’s Twitter account as well as the game’s official Twitter for when the sign-ups go live.
