Puzzle Scape (PlayStation Minis) Review—Tetrisque

Puzzle Scape has actually been kicking around on the PSP since way back in 2007. However, that version was considerably more expensive than the new Minis version, probably because it also had multiplayer components, which the Minis version doesn’t have, of course. What might have seemed a little expensive for what it was back then…

Hero of Sparta (PlayStation Minis) Review—Godlet of War

First thing on everyone’s mind when playing Hero of Sparta is that it’s a shameless God of War rip-off.

Everything seems to remind you of the God of War series;…

Tetris (PlayStation Minis) Review—Another Version of Literal Perfection

Tiny Hawk (PlayStation Minis) Review—Super Fun but Super Duper Short

Stick Man Rescue (PlayStation Minis) Review—Bare

I absolutely have no problems with games which are graphically, um, underwhelming. I would choose gameplay a million times over graphics. Stick Man Rescue is one of those unimpressive-looking games that the Minis program offers. This game is a modern clone of Choplifter, and there’s nothing much added to the core gameplay of the classic…
