This week’s new PlayStation 4 video games look to the past for inspiration. Here’s our round-up of every new PS Store release.

It’s a quiet week PlayStation Store with a just a handful of new games coming to the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.

If the prospect of another side-scrolling game inspired by 80s action movies with 16-bit visuals and a cool synth soundtrack is appealing, you’re in luck. Huntdown from Easy Trigger Games looks like good fun. The sprite work is excellent and, from what we’ve heard, the synth soundtrack is quite cool. It’s all down to the gameplay, then, but that also looks enjoyable. (Maybe we should stop being so cynical?)


The 1990s also loom large with the week’s big PS VR release. Pixel Ripped 1995 from Arvore Immersive Experiences is the follow-up to Pixel Ripped 1989 and promises more nostalgia-fueled VR exploits, this time focused on the 16-bit and early 32-bit era.

Finally, we’re pleased to tell you that Pong is a dungeon-crawling RPG now. Grab your paddle, download Pong Quest, and prepare for, erm, disappointment. Probably.

Other new PS4 games include adventure platformer Potata: Fairy Flower, and SandBloom Studio’s surreal 2D puzzle platform game, Emma: Lost In Memories.

Here’s the full list of new PlayStation Store games for the PS4, PS VR, and PS Vita. We’ll add any last-minute additions to the list throughout the week.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
