PewPew 2 is a dual joystick vector based shooter that feels heavily influenced by Bizarre Creations’ Geometry Wars 2 but it takes things a few steps further. PewPew 2 includes double the ships and modes from the original PewPew along with a 17 mission campaign mode, so the game feels as if its really ‘evolved’ from where it started, at least in terms of sheer options. Each mode is a slightly different variation on the same premise: shoot, dodge, collect. Some levels will simply task you with killing everything on the screen, another requires you to change the color of your ship to shoot enemies of a matching color and one removes your weapons completely so you’ll spend the level collecting and dodging. Upon reaching one of the preset score goals in missions you’ll unlock extra ships, which helps give you something to ‘shoot’ for while you’re playing through these endless missions but if the promise of unlocking extra ships isn’t enough of a draw for you then you can not only compete against your top score but also view the top scores and replays online. It would have been nice to have some social networking integration here though, as there is no way to compete with friends, rather than some of the killer scores on the leaderboards.
