If you were one of the every person on the planet who didn%26rsquo;t pick up Dark Void Zero for DSi, it looks like you%26rsquo;ve been granted a second opportunity to download this surprisingly excellent, hard-as-balls, old-school side-scroller. Assuming you have an iPhone or Steam-equipped PC, you can grab it next Monday at the low, low price of $2.99 for iPhones and $5 for PC.

The game itself is an 8-bit retro style prequel to the not-so-successful original game, Dark Void, which was released to ho-hum reviews on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC earlier this year. Players will take the role of Rusty %26ndash; the first human born in The Void. The game offers around two hours of playtime with Rusty utilizing Nikolai Tesla%26rsquo;s jetpack to navigate 2D platforms and shoot things. And it%26rsquo;s legitimately good, retro-style fun in the vein of Bionic Commando or Contra %26ndash; if they had a jet pack.
