Finger Connection (PlayStation Minis) Review – Touch Screen

I’d like to say, that Finger Connection is hardly a videogame at all. In fact, it is a random instruction generator and some circles, and nothing more. You see, it’s a 2 player version twister on your PSP’s screen, but before you get all excited with the thought that Sony secretly had a touch screen…

Sneezies (PlayStation Minis) Review – Ah Cute! And Ah Fun!

Sneezies are cute little furry cartoon heads who have somehow managed to become trapped in floating bubbles. Your mission is to free as many of these poor creatures as possible, by bursting their entrapping bubbles. The catch is, you cannot directly pop their bubbles. Instead, you spread a burst of sneezing powder. Placing it couldn’t…

Ever wondered what it would be like to manage your own football team? Ever wished you could decide who your favorite team brought or sold? Well now’s your chance. Yes, Square Enix’s Championship Manager 2010 (CM2010) is here and it’s all that we’ve been promised. Now, with most football management games, they either live or…

Music Quiz (PlayStation Minis) Review – Not Noteworthy

This is actually a fairly hefty sized Mini, at 30 megabytes, I guess because the gameplay is sound based, and thus needs sound samples. As the name implies, it’s a quiz.  You are presented with two sounds and asked a question about them. You then pick which sound answers the question. The questions range from…

Reef Aquarium (PlayStation Minis) Review – Stuck in the Shallow End

I love the ocean, so I was intrigued by Reef Aquarium, the first Mini from Biart Studio. I was expecting something, not unlike the old PlayStation 1 title, Aquanaut’s Holiday. In that, you could freely explore an underwater expanse. Look at fish, plants, reefs, even shipwrecks. Due to the smaller scope of games in the…

Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess! (PlayStation Minis) Review – Fangtastically Frenzied Fun (Probably)

Many of us have been drooling over the screenshots and teaser trailers of Mediatonic’s first mini for several months, and now that it’s finally here, I’m very happy to report that it more than lives up to expectations – it’s certainly extremely witty and quirky, and the game’s hero, The Duke, could well be the…

Charge! Tank Squad (PlayStation Minis) Review – Discharged

Charge! Tank Squad feels like an Atari game and looks like it was made for the Game Boy Advance. It’s a simple, overhead tank game where all you have to worry about is moving your armored death machine. Really, that’s all — the tank fires automatically every few seconds, and the shoulder button only serves…

Homerun Hitters (PlayStation Minis) Review – Notting to Bat For

Sony has something like the Minis program in Japan in “Zaku Zaku”. It includes some Minis like Shogi as well as other games that looks like will not fit the Minis category in other territories. Part of this Zaku Zaku line is a series of games meant to be played by two people on one…
