This modern update to these well known arcade classics combines bright 3D neon visuals, enhanced effects, and super smooth gameplay while enforcing the core game mechanics seen in those original games.

Battle against A.I. opponents or split-screen against friends in the Arena. Fight to eliminate your opponents and be the last-man-standing in 36 increasingly complex levels.

Navigate complex mazes, find your way to the exit then try to set the fastest time on the leaderboards. The 36 mazes become increasingly more difficult to complete, with only the most dedicated making their way to the end.

Collect power-ups which grow your trail and avoid destroying yourself in Snake. Challenge yourself in 36 levels featuring a range of power-ups and compete on the leaderboards.

With Update Show in Manchester and Play Blackpool now behind us we're working hard on getting Positron ready for release as soon as possible starting with the PC/Mac/Linux version on Steam and the mobile releases on iOS and Android.

We demoed a version of the game at both the recent shows featuring the medium speed bike on a randomly selected maze. We've had a few hundred people play the game and got some great feedback too. We're now working on implementing some new features, fixing up some rendering issues and updating the whole GUI for the game to bring it up to release quality for the Steam release.

The demo version from Play Blackpool has now been uploaded for you try on your own PC (sorry, Windows only for this demo) and can be downloaded here:

Download: Positron 2014 Expo Demo (Windows PC)

Demo notes:
The demo switches to full screen at desktop resolution automatically. There is no windowed mode.
The demo places you in a random maze level which can be one of the easy, tough, or extreme mazes.
Use the arrow keys or left/right on a supported X-Input controller to navigate to the exit.
Pressing the 1, 2, or 3 keys will switch to a random easy, tough, or extreme maze respectively.
Pressing escape will exit the demo.

A few debug keys may have been left in (hint try P ;-)).

Here's the demo in action from our stand at Play Blackpool:

We'd love to get your feedback regarding this demo and look forward to getting the full version out which features the Arena and Race modes too. If you'd like to get in touch please contact Martin (Director of Retroburn Ltd.) directly:
