It’s definitely not the Summertime, but rival game publishers have decided to treat Fallout 4 like a Hollywood-style blockbuster that needs to be avoided on the release calendar. Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic adventure makes its PS4 debut as part of this week’s PlayStation Store update and it’s practically the only new game available.
But players who aren’t interested in battling Deathclaws in the vicinity of Vault 111 still have a handful of options to choose from:
- Super Dodge Ball is a PS4 re-release of the 1987 arcade game that served as the source for the classic NES game.
- Kromaia Ω is a “bullet hell” shooter for the PS4 with “21st century” touches.
- SkyScrappers is a vertically-scrolling platform fighter for the PS4 that takes place on a teetering skyscraper.
- Spelunker World is a free-to-play platformer for the PS4 that looks an awful lot like Spelunky.
- Phineas and Ferb: Day of Doofenshmirtz is another game based on the popular Disney show, now available for the Vita.
- Superbeat: Xonic is a rhythm game for the Vita with more than 50 songs.
More information on all of these games is available after the break. And a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts can be found at the PlayStation Blog.
