    PSN: 6.49 (5.19 PS+)

    Been out a while on XBLA/PS3 but this has just reviewed well in the latest GamesTM (8/10). A quirky 2D platformer with some lovely 3D depth when you tilt the Vita. A bit Abes Oddysee meets Shadow Complex, if you ask me.

    Y'know when you pick up a game and within 10 seconds you realise it's for you :)

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    I have this one too. It's not hugely ambitious but very enjoyable in small measures, and reminds me of the old splinter cell mobile games by gameloft that were (surprisingly) great.

    Saying shadow complex makes me very interested but is it weighted towards guns or towards exploration and reward?

    I'll be honest with you fella, that was my initial thoughts after playing a colleagues Vita for about 5 minutes! Perhaps el_pollo, is better suited to answer that.

    Actually I've just checked a few reviews and they also mention SD as well, more based on the side scroller shooty aspect I think. It does have that look and feel though, 3D tilt is lovely.

    This is a fun game with amazing graphics and wonderful soundtrack. It's highly recommended from me given the reasonable price point. In my opinion this game is even more like playing a cartoon than Rayman Origins, with seamless transition from the excellent cutscenes.

    It's a shame its thread has so few posts!

    The tilt thing in this is better 3D for me than anything on my 3DS and seems the best way to go as everyone can appreciate it rather than just 70% of people.

    Looks good. I'll pick it up this weekend. It's all these little 6 PSN games that are the best thing about Vita for me.

    Its weighted towards the guns. No real exploration per say, it's just a fun platformer. I never played Shadow Complex I'm afraid so I can't comment, but its a sweet little game for 6.

    Bought. Can't resist these 5 quid indie games. The Vita rules for this type of game

    Me too. This game is really, really good. It reminds me of saboteur on the Spectrum. Yes, it's that good.

    FCUTA!

    Been playing this game more lately - it's brilliant. I love the flying sections, they are really satisfying.

    This game has my favourite art style of any Vita game too I think!

    I highly recommend it if you have not played it yet - it's great for a little session each night.

    I haven't really played the game since around the time of the last post, which level is chapter 15?
