What kind of game is Psion Boy? It's difficult to describe. It starts off as a fast-paced action/adventure game, but quickly begins to show its much deeper roots as a cross between real-time strategy and role-playing. The best way to find out is to begin playing and draw your own conclusions.
Perhaps the most distinguishing characteristic about the game is Psion Boy's method of attack...he has none. The only way he's able to defend himself is by hypnotizing more hostile characters and getting them to do their dirty work for him. This adds a completely new twist to the stale genre of arcade shoot-'em-ups.
Besides those already mentioned, Psion Boy boasts the following features:
• A high-res, scrolling, overhead view with rendered graphics in thousands of colours.
• Sophisticated AI. Sprites talk, patrol, and attack (but only if they see you)
• Optional two-player LAN play.
• A built-in level-editor.
• Full GameSprocket™ support
