The Jak and Daxter HD Collection includes the first three games of the Jak franchise—Jack and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II and Jak 3. The games are classic platformers from an era that has long passed by. They are remastered versions of the PlayStation 2 classics, developed by Naughty Dog, who you might recognise as the developers of the Uncharted series and The Last of Us.

Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark is a renamed console version of PC stealth platformer Stealth Bastard: Tactical Espionage Arsehole. The game is a fast-paced platformers with emphasis on stealth and twitch controls. It features more than 80 levels that consist of brutal hazards, ruthless enemies, fiendish puzzles and gore in all of the game's 8-bit styled glory.

Urban Trial Freestyle has you go through levels of varying obstacles as you try and stunt your way through the game. It has an addictive "one more try" quality to it, especially because of its time trials and instant restart button.

In New Little King's Story, players assume the role of 14-year-old King Corobo, who is tasked with reclaiming his kingdom from an invader known only as the Nightmare. Players have to unite their subjects and fight back to reclaim the kingdom.
