I would call Rymdkapsel minimalist, but that would belay the level of depth it actually offers. This is just one of those titles I was drawn to at first glance. The minimalistic but colorful graphics, the Tetris-style room placement, the strategy; it all came together to make for a uniquely addictive experience for PlayStation Mobile and PS Vita (and coming to iOS and Android in July).

Sonic Dash is another endless runner with a few fun twists on the genre and pretty backgrounds. But it’s also a cheap cash-in on the popular character, like when an ‘80s movie star makes a cameo in an Old Navy commercial.
