LOST ORBIT: Terminal VelocityPC
Lost Orbit: Terminal Velocity is an above-average arcade title with a plethora of content and enough challenge to test completionists and speed freaks alike. Sharp handling and attempts at forming a narrative put it a peg above middle of the road competitors, but a lack of defining level characteristics makes it a speedy, but blurry intergalactic journey.
Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl FleetSwitch
Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet may be a short game, but it is one high in quality. The love of those classic point and click games is apparent here and Alasdair Beckett-King and Application Systems have not only paid homage to the genre, but built upon it. The Fowl Fleet is a lot of fun and filled with bucket-loads of charm. If you like point and click games, or even if you like quirky, fun titles, then this game is definitely worth a look.
Sea of SolitudePC
Compelling voicework and contrasting visuals define this game as more of an experience than a challenge. If you are willing to overlook the few gameplay features in favour of an impactful story, however, Sea of Solitude is definitely worth playing through.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-FueledPS4
While its initially harsh difficulty may ruin your happy memories of the original in a hurry, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is kart racing nirvana with an abundance of content to dive into that makes it more than just an exercise in nostalgia.
Vectronom is one of the best console puzzlers I’ve played over the last few years, even if it’s one I doubt I’ll return unless there’s some DLC that adds extra levels or modes to the game. While it has Super Hexagon’s satisfying frustration, Vectronom lacks its high score rush to keep me coming back.
