Chances are you missed StarDrone when it slipped quietly on to the PS Store in March last year. It’s now lost somewhere in the store’s labyrinth of menus alongside other missing low-priced puzzle games.
You can easily dismiss Drone as just another twin-stick shooter in the same vein as the fine Super Stardust, if you only give it a brief superficial glance. But that’s not how it plays – not even close. Your ship doesn’t have guns; it doesn’t even have a propulsion system.
The ship manoeuvres through Drone’s 60 levels by latching on to and then swinging from nearby gravity beacons. Effectively it’s Tarzan in space, albeit featuring a Tarzan who’s ditched his Jane, loincloth and jungle in favour of a jaunt across the sparkling cosmic universe to light up stars.
