Sine Mora EX Has A Date With The Nintendo Switch

Posted on September 12, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

Sine Mora EX – the beautiful 2.5D shoot’em up co-developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and Digital Reality makes a pass at the Nintendo Switch in North America and Europe thanks to THQ Nordic. In this sometimes-brutal bullet hell title, players guide a three-dimensional ship along the X and Y axis while avoiding the sea of oncoming bullets. Complimenting the vibrant art style is a unique health mechanic where each stage has an allotted amount of time – taking damage speeds up the countdown while routing enemies adds time back to the countdown clock. 

Several enhancements have been made when compared with the 2012 original for the Nintendo Switch release including support for 16:9 resolutions, full English voice over, an improved rendering engine and 3 brand new versus modes – race, tanks, and dodgeball. Also new to Sine Mora EX is the ability for two players to take on the story mode at the same time! 

Sine Mora EX will fly by the Nintendo Switch on September 26th in North America and October 10th in Europe. It was originally released in 2012 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 with an iOS & Android port following in 2013. The Switch release of EX will be joined by a release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well. 


Sine Mora Is The Latest Gratis Game on PlayStation Plus

Posted on October 28, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

The PlayStation Vita suffered a bit of a drought this past summer but now with new releases like Killzone: Mercenary & Dragon’s Crown on the shelves and YS just on the horizon, we finally have some new retail games to play. Well, Sony is upping the ante for those of us looking for digital games with the announcement that Grasshopper Manufacture’s 2012 shoot’em up Sine Mora will be available free of charge for PlayStation Plus subscribers starting tomorrow, provided you’ve got the space on your memory card.

Bullet hell shooters are nothing new but Sine Mora changes up the established formula with a different kind of health mechanic. Instead of a health meter, Sine Mora challenges players to complete stages within a given time limit and to add just a little bit more sweat to your brow – every time you take a hit the time limit just a little bit. With its colourful graphics and 5 different modes it sounds like Sine Mora has a lot of content and you can’t really beat the price of free!

Sine Mora was originally released in the Fall of 2012 and has ported to the PlayStation 3, PS Vita, Xbox 360, PC, Android / IOS and most recently the Ouya.
