A newer version of Sonic Colors was available at PAX 2010 that included a previously unseen level, as well as a new a new Wisp power.
Luckily, the new level I was able to play, Planet Wisp, contained the new wisp power: Orange Rocket. Predictably, this power enables Sonic to launch upward in a straight line, permitting access to otherwise unreachable areas. The wisp was pretty cool, but wasn’t quite as fun as the other three (with our personal favorite being drill--check our previous impressions for more).
New wisp power aside, Planet Wisp played much like the previous levels, with several on-rail segments (where you can hop from one rail to the next) to break up the action. It’s still really fun and is one of my most anticipated games of the year. Look for it to launch on November 12th.
