This Week in Games: Apr 10 – Apr 15

With most Australian states being in the swing of school holidays you might just need some gaming and there are more than a few all-ages titles out this week to help get you through. But before the full list, here are the highlights:

On the 11th if you ever wanted to roll around as a pug or a hamburger with ninja weapons then Deformers is an all ages title for almost every platform, sorry Switch owners.

Alternatively on the 11th, XBox owners can pick up Crawl a pixel dungeon crawler. We don’t know much but we like what we see.

12th if you ever played the 1995 classic ‘Descent’ then Starblood Arena is here to give you those nostalgic feels but on the PSVR.

Also on the 12th Yooka-Laylee is a current gen title that reminds us that we never actually finished Banjo Kazooie, is released for all platforms (except Switch again) but will boast XBox play anywhere support in a future update.

On the 13th Stardew Valley Collectors Edition makes its way to XBox and PS4 in retail stores for anyone who fears downloading things off the Internet.

And lastly on the 15th if you ever wished for a Super Mario Bros port where Mario was replaced with a Tabby, Catmeat is a platformer to soothe that craving on Steam.

Honourable Mention – We love games with that classic SCUMM adventure feel and this week The Sexy Brutale gives them to us. Out for both XBox & via Steam on the 12th it definitely looks pretty.

Did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments!
