Portable gaming is either something that gamers love or hate. Personally I find it hard to get into a comfortable state where I can engulf myself in a game without having to worry about missing my stop or walking into a tree...both of which have actually happened. Video game developer PlayerThree are giving those who fancy themselves portable players something new and exciting to look forward to.

Chronovolt is a PSN exclusive that will have players utilizing all the PS VITA's unique features such as touch screen, rear touch panel and tilt controls as they attempt to guide a ball through various obstacle courses to reach the finish line.

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.

Pretty description aside, Chronovolt offers players:

  • 27 intricate levels
  • 3 time bending powers
  • 3 unique settings
  • post-launch DLC from day 1
  • next-gen graphics
  • competitive multiplayer capabilities

To sum it all up, it's sort of like those old wooden Labyrinth games from back in the day thrown into a virtual world with state of the art graphics. Sony's Playstation VITA has managed to play host to some of the most unique puzzle titles in recent years and Chronovolt is looking to add to the list.

Puzzle enthusiasts in Europe and Australia can pick up Chronovolt for PS VITA when it rolls onto PSN November 21, 2012, while those of us in North America will have to wait until later this year. Oh and Playstation Plus subscribers can pick this bad boy up for a whopping $0. That's right, Chronovolt will add to the list of free games available to those making the monthly payments to Playstation's Plus membership.
