Chronovolt is a fiendish 3D puzzle-platformer in which players
have to guide the rolling Chronosphere through the twists, turns,
traps and hazards of the Escher-like levels. To keep the chase
alive, they will need speed, dexterity and determination to reach
each Time Gate as Dr Scabious makes his escape.
Players can use powerful time controls to stop and rewind time,
open time gates and blast enemies into the past.
The game takes advantage of the PSVita features such as touch
screen, rear touch panel and tilt controls. Players can
“touch” objects in the game to stop time for them thus
solving puzzles and making traversing the levels easier.
The social aspects of the console have not been overlooked:
Chronovolt features asynchronous multiplayer, high score charts and
Maurizio Cerrato, Technical Director on the game, adds:
“It has been an exciting experience working on new platform
since its early stage of development, Sony has given us massive
support helping us to get the best results form the console.
The powerful PSVita hardware brings the home console experience
to mobile. Its new fully featured control system combines both
touch and physical buttons making it the best machine for players
on the move”.
