Avoid Droid on PlayStation Vita: Fruit, Explosions and Multipliers

50°
61w ago - Infinite State Games Creative Director Barry Island announced today that Avoid Droid on PlayStation Vita includes lots of fruit, explosions and multipliers.

To quote: Hello, chums! I'm Barry Island, creative director of Infinite State Games.

We're very excited to tell you that we're bringing something rather fruity to your handhelds very early next year. Avoid Droid is a game we've been wanting to make for a long time, and it's getting a most prestigious premiere on PS Vita!

In Avoid Droid, fruit appears in sync with a drum beat of ever-increasing tempo. Your Droid loves fruit! But when he tries to eat them, they explode.

It's not all bad though, because those explosions destroy the endless horde of robotic machines trying to squish, zap, stomp and bite you. (It's their fruit, you see. Don't ask.)

The hook to the game is the scoring system - each exploding fruit sets off adjacent fruits, creating crazy-satisfying chain explosions. As well as looking and sounding awesome, each explosion adds a multiplier to points scored with the chain.

There's loads of replay value in the main, randomly generated Arena Mode, along with collectable coins which can be used to unlock custom droids and droid bits.

Nasa outlines manned Mars vision

50°
360w ago - Nasa has released details of its strategy for sending a human crew to Mars within the next few decades.

The US space agency envisages despatching a "minimal" crew on a 30-month round trip to the Red Planet in a 400,000kg (880,000lb) spacecraft.

Details of the concept were outlined at a meeting in Houston, Texas.

In January 2004, President George W Bush launched a programme for returning humans to the Moon by 2020 and - at an undetermined date - to Mars.

The "Mars ship" would be assembled in low-Earth orbit using three to four Ares V rockets - the new heavy-lift launch vehicle that Nasa has been developing.

Notionally despatched in February 2031, the mission's journey from Earth to Mars would take six to seven months in a spacecraft powered by an advanced cryogenic fuel propulsion system.

Estimates of the cost of mounting a manned Mars mission vary enormously, from $20bn to $450bn.

The details are subject to change, and may not represent the way Nasa eventually chooses to go to the Red Planet.

However, the document says this is the agency's current "best strategy" for landing humans on the Martian surface.
