This has seen the developer optimise the original PlayStation 3 game, released back in July 2009, which challenges you to master mind-bending physics to “manipulate and bounce balls at increasingly complex geometric structures.”
With the chance to control the angle of each ball’s trajectory for precision attacks using the Suck and Blow mechanic, you also have access to power-ups such as the Unstoppaball and Maneuveraball.
There are 71 “richly detailed sci-fi-inspired stages” to work your way through, lining up precision shots to defeat insane boss battles along the way – gather Shards letting you unleash the powerful Shardstorm to help your efforts.
There are also additional Endless, Boss Rush and Time Attack modes, global leaderboards to compete on, and the chance to team up in local multiplayer in the Endless Co-op Multiplayer and Time Attack Co-op Multiplayer modes.
“When it was first released in 2009, the original Shatter flipped the brick-breaking genre on its head,” explains PikPok CEO Mario Wynands. “We’re thrilled to bring this action-packed title to console and Steam players in a completely remastered package, featuring beautiful 4K visuals, enhanced VFX, and an upgraded 5.1 soundtrack. Revisiting and updating this classic has been a delight as we also work on other exciting unannounced new projects behind the scenes.”
Shatter Remastered Deluxe will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 2 November 2022.
