If you were one of the every person on the planet who didn’t pick up Dark Void Zero for DSi, it looks like you’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 – the first human born in The Void. The game offers around two hours of playtime with Rusty utilizing Nikolai Tesla’s jetpack to navigate 2D platforms and shoot things. And it’s legitimately good, retro-style fun in the vein of Bionic Commando or Contra – if they had a jet pack.
