Super Stardust HD players will soon be able to enjoy a new game mode, developer Housemarque has announced.

Here's what Housemarque CEO and co-founder Ilari Kuittinen had to say about the new Impact mode:

"In place of the weapon system your ship is now fitted with an experimental new matter-to-energy boost engine technology, which means once you activate the boost, you can stay in boost as long as you can hit meteors and enemies with it!

"This mode also features much higher score multipliers - as long as you boost the multiplier keeps growing and growing! This is the most fast-paced and adrenaline inducing add-on to the game yet."

The Impact mode add-on will be released March 30, priced £1.59.
