There’s an odd trend to this week’s assortment of new releases, with many having a doppelganger.
We can expect two arcade-style stunt-filled racers in the form of LEGO 2K Drive, and Ubisoft’s free-to-play remaster of Trackmania. Two retro platformers also receive re-releases – the PS4 version of Zool Redmimensioned, which adds new local party games, and a £5.99 re-release of the PC Engine’s Cyber Citizen Shockman.
Then there’s a double-whammy of retro-style first-person shooters, with Nightmare Reaper and Chasm: The Rift due. And how about two PSone-style horror adventures? Enter No One Lives Under the Lighthouse and Under The Warehouse.
Other, more unique, releases include the Victorian-era puzzle adventure Tin Hearts – which plays like a 3D version of Lemmings, complete with a story to tell – the offbeat and technically impressive puzzle platformer Humanity, a PS5/XBX release of Toylogic’s online fantasy battler Warlander, and Ziggurat’s pixel art World Championship Boxing Manager II.
The Xbox also gains belated releases of Last Labyrinth: Lucidity Lost (minus VR support) and the cops ‘n robbers one-on-one fighter Verdict Guilty. Then on PS4/PS5, the PSP’s Pursuit Force and Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow make a pitstop. As we said, everything is in double-vision this week.
