Ah, ah, ah, ah, try stayin alive, stayin alive! Fancy playing a tough as nails procedurally generated, disco infused, bullet hellish, laser dodging, twin-stick shooter game set in a cave? Well you’re in luck because Out of Bounds and Excalibur Games have teamed up to bring such a game to PS4. The wait is finally over! The highly-anticipated launch is now here, with Laser Disco Defenders available to buy digitally from today.
Laser Disco Defenders features procedurally generated levels, with players needing to complete each stage before moving on to the next. Clad in outlandish disco attire, characters move through each level, destroying the evil Lord Monotone’s minions, with the goal of preventing him from using the Mirror Moon for galactic-scale evil deeds. Players destroy their enemies by shooting funky-looking lasers. But, be warned, disco dancers! The player’s lasers stay in the level and can rebound and hit them, doing just as much damage as they do to enemies.
Laser Disco Defenders is a survival-based game, which subtly encourages the player to keep on playing. Once they’ve lost all their lives, they are returned to the beginning of the game. Avoiding frustration, the procedurally generated nature of Laser Disco Defenders’ stages means that players never have to replay the same levels. Most player deaths are courtesy of their own lasers, and so the player is pushed to become just a little more sparing with their lasers each time they play.
If you’re a PS Plus member, Laser Disco Defenders costs just £5.59 on the European Store, this offer is only up until the 30th of November. If you own the PS Vita version then you can download the PS4 version for free. Check out our PS Vita review, we love it and gave the game a whopping 8.5/10!
