Pixel point and click adventure, bullet time twin-stick shooters, cardboard clouds, kung fu soccer and other sportsball are ahead of you for your gaming week this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting off your week with a little pixel adventure is The Darkside Detective: A Fumble in the Dark. The second adventure of the series is a standalone title (not requiring you to have already finished the first but picking up after) follows the Sierra style of adventure in a point and click title. You can get this for Steam (where you can also download a demo) or PlayStation on Thursday and Xbox on Friday.

Have you ever wanted to be a cloud? Bit weird but ok. This game was probably made with you in mind with Rain on Your Parade having you take control of a little carboard cloud to adventure across 50 levels of puzzles. Think Donut County but you are a cloud. You can play on Switch first on Wednesday or Steam and Xbox on Thursday.

Also first on Thursday is the bullet time top down shooter of Godstrike. There isn’t a lot here with it just coming down to you, a timed boss battle and exactly how good you are with a twin stick shooter. But this might just be the perfect title for your Switch when you are in the mood for some pew pew pew. Pick it up for Switch on Thursday but it is also available on Steam this Friday.

And rounding out your week is a little next gen sportsball gaming with MLB The Show 21 for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. If you are a fan of the Major League Baseball series you know what this is all about with more players and teams to update your roster for 2021. And also, if you pick this up on PlayStation, Sony are also donating $1 for every copy of the Deluxe edition sold to the Jackie Robinson Foundation. Get it on PlayStation this Friday with the Xbox edition out Saturday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week KungFu Kickball out on Steam on Tuesday. The title does give this away but basically you use your mastery of Kung Fu to kick the ball to ring the other teams bell. Sound simple enough? Then you should have no trouble with this in a 1v1 or 2v2 online multiplayer mode without going completely super saiyan right?

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
