Who doesn’t love Tron lightcycles? It’s one of those things that could perhaps be described as a classic ‘game’, but it’s something that’s been adapted so much from the original arcade Tron that many people likely know lightcycles’ mechanics without having played that original game. And many games have taken inspiration from it, too. Retroburn’s Positron is one of those games, and they’re bringing this lightcycle-inspired game to mobile as well as Steam, hopefully soon. Confirmed in a recent tweet over the weekend, Positron will deliver maze-centric lightcycle action. Check out some of the game in action here:
You’ll be exploring a maze, trying to make it to the goal while also reacting to oncoming walls, finding the right paths, and avoiding the hazard of your own light trail left behind you. There’s a year-old PC demo version if you’re curious to see what you might have here. The game has existed as an Xbox Live Indie Game in a past life, but Steam and mobile will be getting an improved version. This seems intriguing enough to keep an eye on, and hopefully it’s out soon!
