Review: Schrödinger's Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark (PlayStation 4)

Schrödinger's Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark (PlayStation 4)

Dead and alive

Brandishing a rather fetching title, Schrödinger's Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark (Schrödinger's, henceforth) introduces itself as somewhat of a novel addition to the 2D platforming realm, boasting eccentric stylised graphics and an intriguingly educational premise. Once you dig deeper than these cosmetic oddities, however,...

Review: The Escapists (PlayStation 4)

The Escapists (PlayStation 4)

Bored behind bars

Every great prison break in history has been executed by someone with the ability to make a fully functioning machine gun out of two plastic forks, a DVD of Adam Sandler's 1989 cinematic masterpiece Going Overboard, and three inches of wire. The Escapists teaches you everything that you need to know when you inevitably get locked...

News: The Escapists Flee to PS4 from 29th May

The Escapists Flee to PS4 from 29th May

No plans for a Vita version, though

We're not quite sure why it's taken Team 17 so long to bring its roster of intriguing indie titles to the PlayStation 4, but with the somewhat disappointing LA Cops now out of the way, it's the turn of The Escapists to break free from the shackles of other systems – and find sanctuary on Sony's new-gen...

Review: LA Cops (PlayStation 4)

LA Cops (PlayStation 4)

D'oh-nuts

Hotline Miami's not necessarily the kind of game that you'd expect to attract a string of copycats, but LA Cops follows developer Dennaton's brutal blueprint down to the most specific of details. You play as one of six clichéd LAPD law enforcers, with your objective to bring justice to some of America's most wanted. You'll do this by...

LA Cops Styles Its Afro on PS4 Next Week

Groovy

Team 17 is on a bit of a PlayStation 4 binge right now, as it's announced that LA Cops will be cuffing itself to Sony's next-gen machine starting next week. The afro-adorning isometric shooter can perhaps be best compared to Hotline Miami, as you tactically infiltrate criminal settlements in your shades and proceed to, ahem, take out the...

Review: Flockers (PlayStation 4)

Flockers (PlayStation 4)

Sheep thrills

In the nineties, Lemmings was so popular with gamers that it appeared on a mind boggling number of platforms, as millions tried – with varying degrees of success – to guide the careless rodents to safety. Since those heady days, you don’t see many titles that follow the Lemmings formula, but with the release of Flockers on the...

Review: Worms Battlegrounds (PlayStation 4)

Worms Battlegrounds (PlayStation 4)

At war with itself

Way back in the hazy days of 1995, we doubt that plucky British studio Team 17 imagined that it would be making Worms games a couple of decades later. Alas, we’re now gaming on Sony’s fourth major home console, and the developer’s recognisable wrigglers have arrived to bring their own brand of genocide to the next-gen...

Review: Worms: Revolution Extreme (PlayStation Vita)

Worms: Revolution Extreme (PlayStation Vita)

Extreme port

Originally released for the PlayStation 3 last year, we found Worms: Revolution to be “a game that will appeal more to old school fans, as newcomers will find it frustrating due to its control issues”. Having made the jump to the PlayStation Vita with all three of its DLC packs and a subtle name expansion, does the touch-friendly...

Review: Superfrog HD (PlayStation 3)

Superfrog HD (PlayStation 3)

Princely or wince-worthy?

Superfrog HD is the remake of an Amiga classic from 1993 and was made by the trusted people at Team 17, who are famous for the Worms series. The narrative is not really groundbreaking, but it tells the sweet love story of a prince and a princess. As with all magical kingdoms, though, fate has something else in mind for the...

Alien Breed Stalks the European PlayStation Store This Week

Showing its teeth

Team 17 will pay homage to James Cameron all over again this week, when its Amiga classic Alien Breed fires onto the PlayStation 3 and Vita in Europe. The top-down blaster will set you back just £6.49 for both versions, and will be buoyed by a further 20 per cent discount for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Those of you in North...

Alien Breed Infects the PS3 and Vita Next Month

They're coming out of the walls

Not content with its recent PlayStation Mobile port, Team 17 has announced that its retro run-and-gun arcade blaster Alien Breed is coming to both the PlayStation 3 and Vita next month. The British studio – which is best known for its anthropomorphic annelids – is aiming to take advantage of various cross-platform...

Early bird

Worms Revolution is set to slither onto the PlayStation Network on 10th October, developer Team 17 has announced. The latest entry in the long-running multiplayer series promises a host of new features, including “new physics objects, dynamic water and an awesome class system”. In order to celebrate the announcement, Team 17’s...

Team 17 Releases Brand New Worms Crazy Golf Footage

Throwing grenades is one of the most fun things you can do in Team 17's Worms series, so golf seems to work fairly naturally in the franchise's natural 2D environment

But of course, this is Worms Crazy Golf, and so there are a hole manner of hazards and obstacles along the way. Check out the gameplay trailer after the jump for a better idea.

Team 17 Announces Worms Crazy Golf For PlayStation Network

We love arcade golf games

Clap Hanz's Everybody's Golf series is one of our favourite PlayStation franchises of all-time, even if it rarely changes with each new iteration. So we always get a little excited when we learn about a brand new, whimsical golf game. Take Team 17's Worms Crazy Golf, "a brazenly bonkers mixture of classic 2D Worms and...

Team 17 Announce Worms Ultimate Mayhem For PlayStation Network

Not got enough Worms from the PlayStation Network yet? Team 17's got your back, with a new title in the series Worms Ultimate Mayhem

But wait just a moment — this is a "souped-up" version of Worms 3D and Worms 4: Mayhem, so naturally it's 3D. All of the content from the aforementioned games will return, in addition to bonus missions and challenges. "It's been an absolute pleasure..

We'd Buy A Worms Themed Crazy Golf Game

Fact: everyone likes Worms, and everyone likes crazy golf

Therefore the two mixed together must be an example of serious retail potential right? That's exactly what the American ratings board, the ESRB, has hinted towards, with Worms: Crazy Golf due for release on PlayStation 3. A similar game was released on Java-enabled mobile phones several years...

Team 17: PSPgo's Issues Are Price Related, Not Digital Distribution

We love our PSPgo here at PushSquare, but it'd be fair to say that it's not been the most well received hardware re-release for some time

Talking up digital distribution in an interview with IncGamers, Team 17's Martyn Brown reckons the PSPgo's issues are inherent of price. “Digital Distribution is here to stay. I think the issues with the PSPgo were somewhat different, basically the cost of the..
