When TIGSource was just a baby, PomPom Games was one of the kings of arena shoot ’em ups (for me, at least!). Space Tripper and Mutant Storm have earned a reputation for being a couple of fast-paced and sexy PC games. Unfortunately, they were pretty quiet after that, putting Mutant Storm Empire and Bliss Island (a casual game) onto XBLA with nary a whisper on their website and forums.
So it’s pretty cool to see that they’ve not only updated their website, but they’re also releasing a new game, for PS3 and PC (no XBLA, huh?). Astro Tripper is to Space Tripper what Mutant Storm Empire is to Mutant Storm – bigger, better, and more beautiful. Nice!
Not only that, but it looks as though Mutant Storm Empire will also be receiving a PC version, finally.
