Ikaruga Meets Auto Running; Polara - To Be Released October 11

Canadian based Hope This Works Games is bringing their polarity based runner, Polara, to the iOS and Android on October 11th. With Polara introducing a color changing mechanic, much like the one used in Treasure's amazing SHMUP, Ikaruga, we're very interested to see how it plays out in-game. Right now, they've shared a couple of screen shots and teaser trailer, which you can view below. The screens don't really do the video justice, so really, check it out! It looks like Polara includes some shmup action of it's own, with lasers and projectiles colored red and blue will be moving all over the screen and fired in your general direction. The animations look fantastic, and the graphics and environment has a sort of cyberpunk feel, which, as some of you know, I'm a total sucker for. 

Polara is set to include story-driven level progression with 50 stages, a tap to switch colors control scheme, color activated launch pads, gravity waves and hex bombs, bosses, and much more!
We're incredibly psyched about Polara, and can't wait til it hits the AppStore. You can be sure that we'll be giving the game a proper review after it's release, and we get deep into the gameplay. Until then, we'll all have to settle for watching the teaser. 


Saw this trailer the other day, can't wait!
