Super Stardust Delta review: Asteroid meets Geometry Wars on Vita

What street sweeping looks like in 1000 years

What immediately strikes you about Super Stardust Delta is how it could look in 3D. You pilot a ship orbiting a planet. Your mission: blast the grid of asteroids and ships. Where's the 3DS version?

Zoom

The Vita has different strengths, of course. Instead of rendering a hundred meteor chunks in an extra dimension, it uses raw horsepower to render thousands.

That's the fun - using touchscreen missiles, rear touch blackholes, and lasers switched on the fly (Lesson 1: flames beat ice), to explode things into fireworks.

Clear the slightly overlong levels to unlock minigames. As a twin-stick shooter it's inferior to the tighter, more ingenious Geometry Wars, but boosting clean through a massive iceberg is cracking.

The verdict

Asteroid meets Geometry Wars on the Vita. Simple, limited, but executed well. A bright spark.
