The cylindrical levels remind me a lot of Resogun.

Not the GW I remember. Hopefully they'll have a classic mode. Oh wait, they do.

Love Geometry Wars, can't wait.

Granted i've only looked at the screenshots, but i can't help but feel like maybe this is missing the point of the original game? I always equated Geometry Wars with difficult gameplay that is easy in execution. Just shoot shit before it kills you, nothing more or less. That's why i liked it. The 3d-aspect feels like it might fuck that up somewhat. Hopefully i'm wrong, i really liked Gemoetry Wars.

I agree.

What does classic mode entail? I want a straight up port of GW2. We already have the original on multiple platforms.

I was one of the few who prefered the original over GW2. From what i remember classic mode was on sequel, but with different scoring system, multiplier pick-up things and the new enemies/figures introduced in GW2.

It's the closest thing to GW2 as we'll get in GW3. Faux 3D with rectangular grid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ny0qLeKq2R4

That grid is obnoxious looking, and takes up way too much of the screen, as pointless as it is. That didn't really ease my fears. I guess it's worth noting that the creator of GeoWars isn't involved in this game :D

It looks like your average twin stick shooter. They're cashing in on that brand name.
