Fast and furiously good.
The first Velocity, which began life as a PSP Mini before getting tarted up for an Ultra Vita version, was rightly lauded for its courage and innovation. Rather than simply go again with this full blown sequel, Brighton-based Futurlab has clearly striven to inject new ideas. Strip the whole thing down and you’ve got a tight, responsive vertical-scrolling shooter. It’s atop this sturdy foundation that a genre powerhouse is constructed, with innovation as the mortar and iconic and frankly gorgeous comic book visuals as the building blocks. There’s even a proper story in there.
