Coconut Dodge – 99p, works on PS Vita
Futurlab’s first minis games, and one that is referenced in Velocity (at least, that’s what I gathered) once or twice. Take the role of the crab, grab crystals and dodge coconuts – sounds simple (and it is) but it’s a great title and really cheap too.
Cubixx – £2.39, works on PS Vita
Laughing Jackal’s tribute to Qix takes the age-old mechanic (gradually cutting away at a block) but throwing it into 3D and using all six sides of a cube rather than just a flat edge. Lots of enemy variety and some pulsing music and graphics round off a solid game.
Nom Nation – £1.74, works on PS Vita
This is effectively an educational guide for kids, but it doesn’t feel forced and the cute retro graphics and well produced platforming make for a great game regardless. Sure, it tries to pass on some healthy eating advice, but that’s hardly a bad thing.
