A lot of ‘Ps’ in that title!

Was the first Positron preview too easy for you? Think you’re a master of Positron already? Check out Preview 2 which presents Positron the way it was intended!  Really, really hard!

You’ll be dropped in to one of the tougher maze levels and will have to ride the fastest bike in the game. Watch out though, the sheer speed of this bike means you have to plan your turns more wisely! The level has the same block dimensions as the first preview, but is now using the scale you will see in the actual game, no more turning back, you’re in it to the end with this one!

You can download the new preview build for PC from the Retroburn web site.

This preview is still a very small part of Positron, it features one game mode (Maze), one one difficulty (Extreme), with the fastest bike in the game (Dragon). The full game features Arena, Maze, and Race game modes. Each of these three game modes contain levels of varying difficulty with Easy, Tough, and Extreme. You can choose between three bikes, the slow Eagle (with very nimble turning), the very fast Dragon (with a very wide turning circle), and the Scorpion, which isn’t as fast as the Dragon but is easier to navigate around complex areas of the levels.

A full demo featuring all three game modes and the full selection of bikes will be released this coming weekend followed by retail release later in the month on PC, Mac, and Linux, with iOS and Android versions soon to follow.

More information on the game can be found on the Steam Greenlight page.
