What It's Like To Play

Graphical groove

Presentation

Graphical groove

PixelJunk 4am on PlayStation 3 delivers a colourful and entrancing experience like no other. This innovative music game is all about bringing you closer to the beat, sweeping you away into an uplifting performance of your own making.

Each Virtual Audio Canvas in PixelJunk 4am shows a unique pattern and background on your TV that you can manipulate using your PlayStation Move motion controller. The Canvas can range from multicoloured swirls to kaleidoscopic patterns, each mesmerising in their movement - especially as you're the reason why they're moving. As you glide through your block rocking beats, the Canvas ebbs, flows and adapts to your physical changes, like an interactive music visualizer.

With its streamlined menu and helpful tutorial, PixelJunk 4am gets you into the groove quickly and easily, leaving you free to make beautiful music and rhythmic visuals.

Feel the beat

Gameplay

Feel the beat

Have you ever wanted to be a world renowned DJ, with masses of people nodding their heads to your bass-heavy beats? PixelJunk 4am on PlayStation 3 gives you the power to move people to your grooves - and all you need is a PlayStation Move motion controller and a PlayStation Eye camera.

A well designed tutorial eases you into the basics of this unique music maker, teaching you how to create and compose your masterpieces step by step. Using the motion controller, reach out and feel the corners of the Virtual Audio Canvas using the edges of your TV screen as a guide. The motion controller vibrates when you hit the sides of your virtual playing field, telling you where the boundaries of the Canvas are.

Then swing, wave and gesture with the motion controller to make your beats. With a flourish of your arm and by pressing specific buttons on the motion controller, you can add and mix Synth, Bass, Drum and Rhythm, pull in loops and reverb, as well as fade elements in and out of your performance. There are no scores or goals - it's just you and the music.

With its freeform style, PixelJunk 4am is a rewarding experience which grows as you play. And as your performances are broadcasted live across PlayStation Network, you'll find your fanbase will grow, too. Download it now from PlayStation Store, perform and take your place in the spotlight.

Reach out and touch someone

Multiplayer

Reach out and touch someone

Like any DJ set, PixelJunk 4am is all about socialising - and this music making PlayStation 3 game gives you all the tools you need to whip up a crowd without leaving your own house. After all, what's the point of making the hottest beats if you can't share them?

Choose your performance venue from a variety of locations and then promote your set via social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Your adoring fans will know what time to log in to PlayStation Network and get ready to rocksteady. And if you want to watch the work of other superstar DJs, the Live Viewer streams in performances from around the world.

You don't have to explore this budding beat nation alone, either. By using two PlayStation Move motion controllers you and a friend can create beautiful music together. Your TV acts as two separate Virtual Audio Canvases, placed side-by-side, allowing you both to mix tracks independently and perform techniques not possible with just one motion controller. The potential to create a rich soundscape is in both of your hands in PixelJunk 4am - and with a friend at your side you can fashion a legendary musical performance that lasts long into the night.
