Last month’s PlayStation Plus Instant Games Collection titles were some of the best the service has offered. Depending on your tastes and available platforms, you might think that this month’s set of games is the complete opposite. Here’s what the instant game collection for April contains.
Tower of Guns (PS4, PS3)
A game that needs little introduction. Why? Because it’s a tower filled with guns! Over-the-top in all the right ways, try to survive this tower with random enemies, bosses, power-ups, and a boatload of bullets.
Never Alone (PS4)
This beautiful puzzle adventure tasks you with guiding Nuna, a native Alaskan girl, through breath-taking environments to save her village. Also, you get to travel with a fox! Can’t get much better than a pet fox.
Players take control of Corvo Attano, a bodyguard framed for murder and imbued with powerful abilities to seek revenge. This game is all about player choice, and feeling awesome while executing extreme stealth maneuvers.
Aaru’s Awakening (PS3, PS4)
What started as a school project for a team of students in Iceland is now a gorgeous platformer about navigating treacherous terrain with well-timed teleports.
Killzone Mercenary (PS Vita)
View the iconic war against the Helghast from a mercenary’s point of view, and jump into a robust multiplayer mode to show how good (Or bad?) you actually are.
MonsterBag (PS Vita)
An adorable puzzle game about a bag-shaped monster named V trying to reach his friend Nia without scaring the pants off of people. May or may not include a battle of wits, skill, and the inevitable apocalypse.
Tower of Guns looks like some mindless fun, though Never Alone looks like it could be unbearably charming. Aaru’s Awakening looks nice enough. The biggest games this month hit Sony’s other platforms though, with excellent stealth adventure Dishonored hitting the PS3. Vita owners get Killzone Mercenary, which I thought was rather good, and MonsterBag…which I’ve never heard of.
What do you think? Is April a winner for PlayStation owners?
I think Microsoft’s dished out better games this month, with games like Child of Light, Assassin’s Creed IB, Terraria and Gears of War: Judgement being offered to subscribers.
