PSP To Sport Some MumboJumbo

Later last month, we noticed a few bizarre games on the PSP release list, specifically the downloadable PC and Mac games Platypus and Luxor. Today, those two titles were confirmed as the first PSP games from Texas-based casual game guru, MumboJumbo.

Luxor: Wrath of Set is the most recent installment in the action/puzzle franchise that has experienced more than 40 million downloads in the past two years. Similar to a game like Ballistic, Luxor requires players to destroy a field of colored balls by firing like-colored balls from a cannon. And while this may sound strikingly similar to Bust-a-Move, the game also implements a different twist; the cannon can move horizontally along the bottom of the screen.

Platypus, while technically a "casual" game, is actually accepted by the hardcore set. It's a side-scrolling 2D shooter reminiscent of Gradius, but this one has its own unique style...the graphics are comprised entirely of clay.

The two games will retail for $29.99 each when they are released next month for the PSP.
