A number of great smaller titles released in April, as well as son that are finally seeing their way to the PS4. Which games were must-play titles? Here are the ones we think you ought to be playing.
In Ziggurat, you are a wizard in a randomly generated dungeon, out to kill a whole bunch of monsters to level up and unlock new spells and characters in order to better kill the next set of monsters. If you love playing as a magic user, this game is one you should check out.
Finally seeing a release on the PS4, Supergiant Games' first title before Transistor is a treat to play. Yeah, it's been available on just about every platform conceivable, but this is a big win for PlayStation gamers.
Another game that released first elsewhere sees a release on PS4, adding in fun secrets like fighting Kratos. Don't be fooled by the looks though, Shovel Knight is a tough game, but one that PS4 and Vita gamers should definitely pick up.
A fun little puzzle game that was free on plus last month, MonsterBag is delightfully dark, and a great addition to anyone's Vita arsenal.
Fully embracing and wholly redefining the Metroidvania genre, Axiom Verge is an impressive title built by one man, with a vast amount of secrets and a huge world to explore. If Metroidvania is your thing, Axiom Verge is a must.
Broken Age has been out for a while, but with the release of Part 2, PS4 (and Vita) gamers are finally getting their hands on the full story. This is classic Double Fine adventure gaming at its (double) finest.
El Presidente finally reigns supreme on the PS4. Tropico 5 has been out for nearly a year, but recently released on PS4, finally giving PlayStation gamers the ultimate city builder and political simulator.
One arrow. One hit. That's the mantra in Titan Souls, which revels in one hit kills, both for the monsters and you. It's not an easy game, but the sheer simplicity is a satisfying foray into the core of difficult games.
There were a lot of great games to play in April, but one title came out on top in a clear and bloody finisher. The Arpil 2015 game of the month is...
This fighter sought to push the boundaries of not only what was possible in fighting games, but what was acceptable with video games in general. Over the top finishers, a tight and fun combat system, and a bevy of unlockables, secrets, and kontent make Mortal Kombat X the clear victor.
