Blinx update

Microsoft releases new screenshots from Artoon's Xbox platformer.


Microsoft has released new screenshots of Blinx: The Time Sweeper, a platformer being developed at Artoon. In the game, players will take on the role of Blinx, a vacuum-toting cat with the ability to manipulate time. Throughout each level, players will find symbols that correspond to one of several time-changing functions, such as rewind, fast-forward, and record. When players collect enough of these symbols, they can use the time functions at any time during a level. For example, if there's one area with too many enemies for Blinx to maneuver around in, he can freeze time via the pause function and work his way through without having to worry about enemies tracking him.

We'll have more on Blinx as it becomes available.
