Velocity releasing in March, soundtrack created by Killzone composer

FuturLab has announced Velocity, scrolling minis shooter with gameplay featuring a teleport mechanic which allows players to jump around the screen and return to previous areas of a level to solve "time sensitive logic puzzles."

Back in August, the makers of Coconut Dodge posted a mystery puzzle on the EU PS Blog, and tasked users with solving the puzzle and suggest names for the title. Four winners were chosen, and each winners' not only had their names immortalised in the game, but each also received a promo code to download the game for free.

“We’ve achieved some notable innovations within the shoot ‘em-up genre, to the point where Velocity not only lives up to fond memories of shoot ‘em-up classics, but goes several steps further by introducing something completely new and exciting – teleportation," said FuturLab managing director James Marsden.

"It also features a phenomenal soundtrack from Joris de Man, winner of an Ivor Novello award for his work on the Killzone series for PS3.”

Velocity will be released for PSP, Vita and PS3 in March in the US and Europe and will be a free download for Plus members.
