Codies bringing cute PC mini-game collection to Sony's handheld this winter
Codemasters is poised to demonstrate the first fruits of its recent conversion to the joys of casual gaming: the Britsoft outfit has announced that it will publish a PSP version of the game Bliss Island this winter.
Developed by highly regarded indie Pompom Software, Bliss Island is already available on PC, via Codemasters' casual games portal Funsta. Indeed, you can try it before you buy it (if you're too tight-fisted to lash out £12.99, that is).
If you can't be bothered to do that, you might like to know that Bliss Island basically involves keeping kinetic objects on the move - you play Hoshi, a cute blue creature called a Zwooph, who can blow air from his trunk. You negotiate mini-games involving juggling, racing, attacking, defending and directing. The PSP version of the game will be endowed with a control system that uses just the analogue stick and one action button.
During the course of the game, Hoshi will have to bounce fruit into the hungry mouth of the Jigoka Monster, save flowers from swarms of fluffy aphids and smash marching boulders to pieces in a mini-game entitled Brick Invaders. Wonder where that one got its inspiration from?
