It's easy to love a company that is so honest. The title for Frima's newest PSN mini is A Space Shooter for 2 Bucks!
As you may have guessed, it will be priced at $2.00 but PlayStation Plus members will getting the game for free on the day it is launched. How is that for a deal?
I was pleasantly surprised
by their last title (Young Thor
) so I'm interested to see how well they do with this type of game. Just like the name states, A Space Shooter for 2 Bucks! is a space-themed shoot 'em up. Players will be given a reason to go on an intergalactic shooting spree loaded with tongue-in-cheek humor. It sounds like a winning combination to me. Look for A Space Shooter for 2 Bucks! on the PSN on December 21.
More information will be available soon on the game's web site
but it's currently down.

Since time immemorial, through eons of time and dozens of game consoles, one thing has remained true: humans love hopping into a spaceship to shoot up hordes of alien invaders! In A Space Shooter for Two Bucks! (a game with perhaps the most straight-forward title in history) you get to do just that. Take control of Commander P. Jefferson and go on an intergalactic shooting spree, hopping from galaxy to galaxy in your attempts to wipe out hordes of swarming alien baddies. With over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek humor from the game’s wide cast of colorful characters (all of which are fully voiced-over) and loads of bodacious power-ups to ensure your ship has a fighting chance against the sea of enemy ships and bullets, A Space Shooter for Two Bucks! gives gamers everything they could ask for in a space shooter!

As Commander P. Jefferson (left), players must navigate through space (with the help of the trusty-yet-snobby AI, Edgar, right) in a quest to do…well, what else? Kill aliens of course!
A Space Shooter for Two Bucks! is rated T for Teen for mild fantasy violence, mild language, suggestive themes and use of tobacco and is (shockingly enough) available for $1.99.
