King Oddball Regular Price: $6.99; Free for PS Plus members
End the world with boulders! The King swings a boulder back and forth with his tongue and you get to release it by pressing a button. Time the release accurately and crush as many targets as possible with each boulder. Simple but addictive!
Extra boulders are awarded for crushing three or more targets with a single throw. Master the game by anticipating how boulders roll, bounce, and launch from explosions. Take advantage of collapsing structures too!
As always, for PlayStation Plus users who don’t have a PS4 yet, be sure to log in at the PSN Webstore to get the games added to your collection so that you can download them once you do get one. Also, Sony announced that PS+ would be discontinuing both PS3 and PS Vita titles in March of 2019, so if you are relying on those through the services and don’t see the value in PS+ anymore you should look at what your options are.
I know that Beyond: Two Souls was a divisive game on PS3 when it launched, and I did hear that the PS4 remaster fixed some of the problems, specifically with the story since you can now play chronologically instead of jumping all over time. With Detroit: Become Human coming next month, I’m looking forward to give this one a go. Rayman Legends is an all-time platformer classic that you have to play. Ceidz really liked the PS3 version when it released, and the PS4 one is the same but looks and feels even better. EdEN reviewed a copy of King Oddball for the Switch and thought it was a fun arcade style release. I’m always up for giving odd games a chance!
