- Today SCEE's PSP European Product Manager Adam Grant
has shared videos spotlighting five new PSP and PS3 minis that are hitting PSN today.
To quote: We have 5 great new minis playable on both PSP and PS3 launching today ranging from bouncing balls to street crime! Check them out below.
Archibald's Adventures from Rake in Grass
Archibald's Adventures offers a gameplay mixed of action and puzzle elements with gradually rising complexity. You start as a boy on a skateboard in a bunch of easy levels, but that's just a warm up. Soon you will roll in a robotic vehicle capable of riding on walls and ceilings, you will fly on a jet device or remotely control a mysterious floating bubble able to switch distant mechanisms or transport objects.
With 191 levels, the game will keep you entertained for many hours!
Car Jack Streets from Tag Games
After much anticipation, Tag's hit game Car Jack Streets explodes onto minis!
The player takes control of Randal Meyers, a petty criminal with a major gambling addiction, who's found himself in arrears to the Italian mob. Now that his debt has reached the nice round sum of $1,000,000, the mob boss Frankie decides it's time for Randal to start paying that money back - and quickly!
A nice feature is that the game takes place in real time - meaning if you play the game at 5.00 PM, it's 5.00 PM in the game. Play in the afternoon and the sun is shining, play at night and the street lights and car headlamps illuminate the city. Some jobs require you to reach a location at a certain time, and some missions will only ever appear at a particular time of day (look out for the killer clowns!)
Pallurikio from Playstos Entertainment
Pallurikio is a fresh platforming game starring a round-shaped hero, Pallurikio, mixing simple puzzles and physics simulation.
Make Pallurikio jump and roll, and help him find his way through more than 50 enticing levels, while surviving all kinds of pitfalls and trickeries he might come across when traversing Bakumbala Jungle, the far reaches of Palluro Prime and many other environments.
Featuring physics simulation, Time Attack mode, collectable cards, and space rockets, Pallurikio is a game on which you won't want to miss out!
Star Hammer Tactics from Black Lab Games
From independent developer Black Lab Games we have Star Hammer Tactics. The game a tactical battle game, were two sides square off in a battle to the death. It's set in a sci-fi world in the future, where human settlers on the planet Novus are under attack from an alien race called the Nautilids.
In Star Hammer Tactics, each side has a total of 4 units types - a small fighter, a larger fighter, a medium sized "warship" and a larger "destroyer" class vessel. Larger vessels can fire missiles, so you can devastate your opponent from afar! Smaller vessels have a longer range, and the ability to inflict damaging 'critical hits' on larger vessels.
Piyotama from SCEE
Spring has sprung and all through the forest the cheep-cheep of our feathered friends the Piyos fills the air. But up in the treetops things aren't quite so peaceful.
Mother Piyo is hard at work in her nest, laying the colourful eggs that hatch the lovable baby Piyos. But she's getting a little carried away and now there are more eggs than her nest box can hold. It's up to you to help her out, rearranging the eggs to match their colours and hatch the Piyo chicks, making space for new arrivals.
All you have to do is line up four or more eggs of the same colour and give them a little nudge to help the baby birds break through the egg shell.
Easy, right? Don't be so sure - more and more eggs are being laid all the time so you'll need to have your wits about you, not to mention super fast reactions as the pace picks up in this highly addictive puzzler.
