July 26, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

A shoot ’em up inspired by old arcade classics, Blue Rider from developer Ravegan is now available for PlayStation 4 in North America. It has a month-long 20% launch discount, putting it at $7.99, and there’s also a demo if you want to try Blue Rider before buying it.

Here’s the description for Blue Rider, taken from Steam:

Hop in and join the explosive action of this shoot-em-up! The perfect adventure that players who enjoy a good challenge were waiting for. Face the most challenging robot bosses you could possibly imagine as you travel across rich and diverse landscapes, and try to keep up with this insane bullet hell.

Enjoy a dynamic arcade-like game where it’s you against anything that moves. Remember that hedgehog or that little robot boy? This is a trial they wouldn’t be able to face. So get ready for a daring battle that’ll put your skills to the test. Blue Rider! Not for the faint of heart!

Features:

  • 9 unique biomes overflowing with enemies.
  • Customize your arsenal and discover your very own strategy.
  • Easy to play, hard to beat. Always fun!
  • Challenge and defeat each of the 9 different bosses.
  • Orchestrated original soundtrack.
  • Explosions, explosions and… more explosions!

Blue Rider wasn’t released today in Europe for PS4, and instead will arrive next month. The description of the above trailer (from February 2016) says a PS Vita version is also happening, but no details were given today.

The PC version of Blue Rider hit Steam earlier this year, and an Xbox One version is releasing next month.
