Grow Up! and F1 2016 come to the PlayStation Store this week.

There’s a decent selection of games heading to the PlayStation Store on Tuesday, especially if you like simple board games translated into unnecessary digital versions. And if that is you, then wonderful! This week sees tactical naval combat come to PS4 in the shape of Battleship.

Those with a more discerning palate might want to check out the latest iteration in the F1 franchise, which this time round introduces a ten season career mode in Codemasters’ F1 2016.


Highlight of the week is probably Plastic’s Bound – a vibrant platform adventure told through the medium of dance. We watched fifteen minutes of gameplay over someone’s shoulder at E3 and came away very impressed.

And another interesting release is Ubisoft’s Grow Up!. The sequel to 2015’s quirky platform adventure, Grow Home!, sees little robot BUD return for a trip to the moon,

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
