Let's get on with it!
This unique and visually stunning game offers players a one-of-a-kind experience when it comes to platforming, in that they'll have to literally bounce their ideas around across drone-cam-based landscapes. With a bird's eye view of the world, players will navigate beautiful locations in 4K in an attempt to keep their lightbulbs going.
The game also offers a collection of random ideas of sorts, where failing a level will prompt players to jot down their thoughts to be shared with other like-minded individuals across the globe.
Promise of Lingyun
This narrative-driven RPG boasts stunning art styles reminiscent of Chinese ink paintings, immersing players in all the love and drama of palace life. Players can discover a variety of scenarios for both male and female characters in the game, as well as customise how they look with breathtaking themed costumes.
The game also offers an adorable pet-raising experience where players can nurture these palace pals and give them gifts, as well as a special mansion feature where they can spruce up their homes with lovely furniture and unlock more rooms as they progress through the game.
Summoners War: Chronicles
The latest game in the popular Summoners War series lets players dive into a brand new adventure, this time in the form of an MMORPG. Players can take their pick from Orbia, Kina and Cleaf and summon 350 Monster types to fight by their side. The game supposedly takes place prior to Sky Arena and Lost Centuria, giving players a more immersive look into the Rahil Kingdom.
The game also features a variety of dungeons to challenge, as well as Arenas to do PvP in. Players can take a breather as well by mining, gathering and fishing, or party up with their online buddies in the "Party Play" Co-op mode.
This stylish and over-the-top racing game boasts a combination of realistic vehicles and their larger-than-life skills that players can unleash across gorgeous tracks. These ultimate skills can range from flashing through walls to even transforming while on the road, adding to the high-octane feel of the title.
The game also features deep customisation features that players can tinker around with in their garage, whether they're personalising the paint and decals on their Porsche 911 or adjusting the rims and lights of their Nissan GT-R.
KOF: Survival City
Set in the popular KOF franchise, this strategy game lets players defend against the malevolent forces of the NESTS by building their base and expanding their territories to save humanity. Players can collect fan-fave fighters from the hit IP - such as Iori Yagami, K’, Leona Heidern, Kula, Mai Shiranui and Kyo Kusanagi - as they rescue survivors, construct buildings, and join in on massive multiplayer battles.
The game also lets players team up with their friends to form alliances against other guilds for ultimate glory.
