Rochard

RH Numbers

This new PSN exclusive sees players take control of space-miner John Rochard as he fights through levels and solves puzzles in a bid to uncover more about a strange alien structure discovered in the centre of an asteroid.

Rochard, equipped with a Half Life 2-esque gravity gun, manipulates his environment and takes out various bad guys along the way.

As well as thrilling gameplay and copybook mechanics, Rochard includes some fantastic voice acting from Duke Nukem star John St. John, a humorous script and a seriously groovetastic soundtrack. For that price, it's a bargain and well worth the investment.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game

RH Numbers

Ubisoft's triptastic manga-like game loosely follows the same plot as the graphic novels and film of the same name. Players take control of either Scott Pilgrim, Ramona Flowers, Kim Pine or Stephen Stills as they battle through seven levels, each culminating in a violent rendezvous with seven of Ramona's evil exes.

Defeated enemies drop coins, which can be used as health top-ups or stat boosts. With four players on screen, things can be quite chaotic, but fans of classics such as Streets of Rage, will be in their element here.

A soundtrack by chiptune rockers Anamanaguchi also keeps the nostalgia spewing from old-schooler's mouths, along with heaps of references for the experienced gaming community. Not only is this movie tie-in actually decent, but it's one of the better download games available. Who'da thunk it?
