by Rainier on Jan. 5, 2007 @ 5:00 a.m. PST

Gaming and music combine like never before on your PSP in Traxion - where your music drives the action. For the first time ever, play dozens of games on your PSP where you can use your own music to actually change each one. Using your own MP3 files or the hot music loaded within the game itself, Traxion analyzes your favorite tunes and creates personalized game experiences based on the music you choose. Be it rock, rap, classical or jazz (yes, even polka!), every song presents unique gameplay accompanied by a dazzling visual and sensory experience. Play the same game to different music and enjoy it in a different, personalized way every time you play!

Features :

  • Play along as Traxion analyzes your choice of tunes to generate unique gameplay, new challenges and custom levels.
  • A variety of arcade-style games, light show effects, and interactive displays bring your music to life.
  • You can experiment with your music library to get high scores, play along to your favorite album, or just dip into a quick song while waiting for the bus.
  • When using your own MP3 files, change games at any time with no break in the music, or change songs in the middle of a game you've already begun. You can also play a single game continuously over multiple MP3 files or automatically switch games with each new track. You're always in control!
  • Each of the 20-plus games features its own specific goals and challenges. A few of them include the following:
    • Vortex: Switch left and right between lanes as you guide a bouncing ball down a twisting, swooping, diving musical staff. Avoid obstacles and collect notes that arrive in time with the music.
    • Beatdrop: Destroy colored blocks at the top of the screen by adding more from the bottom. Plan ahead and create longer chains of blocks, or cause combo-boosting cascades of well-placed blocks. Watch out! The wall is continually rebuilt from above as more beats arrive.
    • Karate-oke: Fight your music in this collage-based parody of classic martial arts films. Use a combination of three different attacks and defensive stances to fight a series of musically generated opponents.
  • In addition to more than 20 games, Traxion also serves as a music organizer for your PSP. Customize your playlists and categorize your tracks by band, album name and genre.
