Housemarque's Outland out this spring

Downloadable game hits PSN April/May.

Super Stardust HD developer Housemarque's downloadable game Outland launches on the PlayStation Network this spring.

The side-scrolling platform shooter releases in April or May, according to the US PlayStation Blog.

Outland's like a cross between old school Prince of Perisa and cult classic shmup Ikaruga. Tapping L2 shifts you between blue and red energy alignments, allowing you to harmlessly absorb same colour projectiles. There's story co-op and co-op challenge rooms, too.

Outland was announced as a Ubisoft-published PSN and Xbox Live Arcade game last year.

Housemarque's previous title was zombie kill-em-up Dead Nation.
