Here’s another fresh PlayStation Plus game that the gaming community agrees is worth a try.
April’s wave of new PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium games has arrived. There’s a lot of good stuff in the new arrivals that’s worth checking out. One of the most important new additions is Kena: Bridge of Spirits, which has received very positive reviews from critics and players alike. However, on Reddit, players have highlighted an excellent and seriously underrated platform game that you should try.
I’m talking, of course, about Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, which Reddit user STO_Ken called “this month’s PS+ hidden gem”. They wrote: “I really love the art style which is incredibly detailed and has animations for everything, as well as the silly story which basically involves your uncle getting drunk and turning the town into humanoid animal creatures. Anyway, I think it’s probably a game people might sleep on because they aren’t really sure what it is, but would actually enjoy it if they gave it a try.”
Other fans agree wholeheartedly, “Lovely game. It’s also a decent challenge in a non-retro way, which the cartoon art style may not imply,” commented EarthInfern0. “Enjoyed it and the OG back in the day. Good stuff,” wrote Drizztd99. “This is probably one of the most fun Metroidvanias I ever played!” added Jonkar__.
If platformers aren’t your thing, don’t despair! Players are also praising the roguelike deck-building game Slay the Spire. They consistently insist that it “shouldn’t be ignored”, among many other good things.
Both games are available at the Extra level, so there is no set deadline to claim them. Be sure to try them when you can.
