- Key Points -

■PLATFORMING RE-INVENTED

The game takes full advantage of PS VR to reinvent the platforming genre with gameplay unfolding around you in 360 degrees. In VR, every jump can be judged with perfect accuracy.

It’s not just about character control. You will have to use your body to smash parts of the environment, dodge enemy attacks coming at you, and lean around corners to discover new areas.

 

■20 UNIQUE LEVELS

20 unique levels await you in 5 planets, each one populated by deadly traps and enemies blocking your way. You will go through a city, dark caves, lush forests, heavenly beaches, a volcano and even inside the belly of a gigantic whale.


 

■HUGE BOSSES

Huge bosses await you at the end of each world and you will need to use all your skills to get past them. Defeating each one will allow you to retrieve one of the missing pieces of your spaceship.

 

■5 GADGETS IN ONE CONTROLLER

Your DUALSHOCK®4 wireless controller becomes the host of a bunch of fun gadgets ranging from a hook shot used to cross ravines, water cannon, slingshots and even deadly ninja stars to cut through enemies.

 

■EXTRA CHALLENGES

Each stage contains a secret character. Finding it grants you a brand new challenge stage where you can test your platforming skills to try to save more of your lost crew.

 

■BUILD YOUR COLLECTION ROOM

The collection room lets you spend your hard-earned coins in the crane game to build interactive dioramas and check on how many of your crew you have managed to rescue.

 

*PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Camera required for use of PlayStation®VR
