Psygnosis is renowned worldwide as a leading software innovator, and this is due in no small part to their contribution to PlayStation's portfolio. Look at the standards they have set with the likes of WipEout, Destruction Derby and Adidas Power Soccer.
Another impressive addition to their bulging CV is Novastorm. The lush backgrounds are streamed directly from the disc, and the overlaid action is a behind the ship shoot-em-up with 3 difficulty levels and more enemies than you can shake a stick at.
It's one of the toughest blasters on the market, and although the alternating level-guardian-level format is familiar, the environment is unique to PlayStation.

The human race is complacent. Computers take care of everything. Nothing can possibly go wrong. Until one day, the most dangerous information superhighway in history starts preaching armed revolution. The gospel of silicon against flesh... In the gut-wrenching, heart-stopping ride of a lifetime, pilot the Scavenger 4 space fighter between canyons, over glaciers and through cities in a one-on-one showdown with the deadly Scarab X. This heroic, high-flying blast ‘em up features dazzling 3D graphics, fully interactive white-knuckle playability, amazing full motion video sequences and a shredding rave soundtrack. Novastorm will chew you up and spit you out.
But you’ll come back begging for more...
