Can be very difficult to the point of frustration

Last year, Futuridium EP was released on the PC and apparently was well received as it has made its way onto the Playstation 4 and Vita. But in that case, it comes as definitive version with additional levels, content and a nicer soundtrack. Titled Futuridium EP Deluxe, owners of these systems should be lucky of getting such a deluxe package!

You control a space ship in a 3D perspective as you fly across outer space in a dimensional loop fighting off bigger and more intimidating ships that you encounter. In these cases, you’ll need to blast off their pieces until their very cores have been released. In doing so, you’ll be able to maximize your ships energy bar, which happens to be decreasing from the beginning. Hence, I would view this energy as your time limit and the absorption of the cores to be additions to your time.


This certainly sounds like a lot of action so tight and responsive controls are important. In the case of Futuridium EP Deluxe, you won’t be disappointed. Moving your ship with the left stick is simple and fluent while the button layouts for the attack and reversing your ship is arranged in a familiar and accessible fashion. Additionally, the right shoulder button lets you perform a speed boost which is assigned in a convenient location on the controller.

Each time you complete a level, you are evaluated and rewarded with a maximum of three medals. If you can get through the level in a short period of time without dying and pull of a high enough combo, you’ll get the top evaluation, hence all three medals.

While the challenge does seem inviting, the difficulty can be discouraging. For starters, the checkpoints are not as abundant. So if you happen to get pretty far in the level and then you die, you can be taken pretty far back close to the beginning. Furthermore, the game can be pretty tough especially with the limited credits you start off. However, the more you come back to play the game, the more credits you are given in the next play through.


Futuridium EP Deluxe is a fairly long game as it made up of 50 levels spanning across five different zones. It’s good to have a variety in environment. And on top of that, you get the occasional boss encounter which makes things feel more interesting. There’s definitely a lot of excitement and awe during these occurences.

What makes Futuridium EP Deluxe even more enjoyable are additional games modes that become available as you progress further. You can play the original Futuridium EP which proves itself to be tougher than the original campaign. There’s even the Flappyridium mode which gets you controlling your ship in a 2D perspective with the controls being similar to that in Flappy.


Futuridium EP Deluxe does look mighty impressive and even unique for its style. The colors are arranged in an interesting fashion that keeps your sights entertained and mesmerized. Additionally, the action on screen looks very appealing while the frame rate manages to remain fluid. The real bright start in Futuridium EP Deluxe is the music behind this game. Every song helps to inspire the players and encourages them to persevere despite the tough levels in the game. And further to that, the sound effects give a deeper and enthralling impression.

Futuridium EP Deluxe is a very wonderful title for the Playstation 4 and Vita. Whether you play on the big screen or on the go, you will get the same amount of satisfaction and entertainment that will continue to thrill and exhilarate your senses.
