176w ago - Today Just Add Water CEO Stewart Gilray has announced on Sony's PlayStation Blog that Gravity Crash Portable for PSP and PSPgo is hitting PSN soon.
To quote: Well, it's finally here! Gravity Crash Portable is being released on July 20th for $9.99.
During the development of the PSP version, we made some changes based on feedback to the PS3 version. Things that you guys asked for, and things that we felt needed to be looked at. To tantalise you in anticipation here's a list of some of what has changed...
• We've added a third ship. An anti-gravity ship. When playing, if you let go of the analog stick you will no longer plunge to your death.
• We've increased the number of special weapon slots from 3 to 5.
• We've added a lot more weapon pickups throughout the levels.
• We've made the Primary Objectives more recognizable on the radar (via BIG FLASHING DOTS).
• We originally used the old-school concept of three lives, then Game Over. We have now removed that; if you get Game Over, you can start from where you left off.
• We completely re-wrote the "paint" aspect of the editor, to make it faster and cleverer in relation to holes.
• We've added a new game mode, Survivor mode, where you have an ever-decreasing time limit, but an ever increasing difficulty level, in which to collect 10 gems.
• We've also unlocked the hidden game Gold Grabber, which was only unlocked by completing the game on the PS3 version.
Despite the changes, the game retains the same frenetic gameplay as the PS3 version, perhaps more so due to the smaller screen size. What started off as a making a PSP version has turned into much more.
Of course sharing levels is still possible and it's pretty simple actually, each custom level you create and save is given a unique folder name within the "PSPSAVEDATA" folder of your memory stick, or PSPgo internal storage, like this "NPEG00020DATAxx" (xx is a number), simply copy that entire folder to your friend's PSP and they'll be able to play your level via the "Play User Levels" option.
I think I'm done! We're incredibly proud of the PSP version and we really do hope you like it.
