I usually don’t think much of video game soundtracks, but Velocity had a great one, and presumably its Vita successor, Velocity Ultra (released this week in Europe, probably next week in NA), has a great one as well. You can now buy it at a variety of online music stores.
From TACS Games, this looks to be some sort of puzzle game.
Five new PlayStation Mobile games/apps for this week.

Merum is a memo/note app.
Reversi Multiboard is a PSM version of Reversi.
Tileogo is a puzzler.

- Merum ($1.49, £1.19)
- Reversi Multiboard ($3.99, £3.19)
- TILEOGO ($1.99, £1.59)
While much of the focus is on FuturLab’s upcoming Velocity HD, releasing soon (
perhaps even this week in Europe), Coconut Dodge, their first game, is also receiving an upgrade for the Vita. It has a less mysterious release date—June 5th, at least in Europe.
Snake is literally one of the oldest video games around, its gameplay dating back to 1977 and the game Hustle from Gremlin, which in turn was a single-player version of their game Blockade, released in 1976. It was cloned on virtually every computing device and video game system, and a version called “Nibbles” came with QBasic, found on pretty much every PC sold from 1990 until Windows XP came out. It was also a very popular game on mobile phones in the late ’90s, which gave it its modern name of “Snake,” though some previous versions also used the Snake name.
If you are somehow not familiar with the game, it’s very simple. You play from a top-down perspective and control the direction of the head of a snake, with its tail slithering behind. Your goal is to maneuver the snake so it eats a dot on the playing field, and as you eat more dots (or simply the longer you play), the tail grows in size, becoming an obstacle that you must avoid, since it doesn’t change direction as you move but rather follows your previous path.

Retroburn Game Studios has released a nice long gameplay video showing the different camera angles in their upcoming game, Positron. Looks pretty spiffy!
It should be out pretty soon, within the next couple of months.
