Retro-Style Games on PlayStation Plus

    This month we have gone with a Retro theme, although it does sound old and not appealing to most, our selection is designed to bring attention to some of the greater games that could go unseen. Let’s check out these Retro-Style Games on PlayStation Plus.

    Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

    Retro-Style Games on PlayStation Plus - Scott Pilgrim

    Almost everyone knows the name Scott Pilgrim, originally released in 2010 this 2D Side-Scroller has come back with a new lease on life for the PS4. On the surface, I would compare it to Streets of Kamurocho as both games give the same vibe to me, both are 2D Sprite pixels which scroll either to the Left or Right in order to complete a task, and both are beat ’em ups.

    Unlike the aforementioned Streets of Kamurocho, Scott Pilgrim features 4 person multiplayer and unique movesets for each controllable character. The goal of the game is to defeat the 7 bosses who are referred to by the game’s lore as The League of Ramona’s Evil Exes.

    Developed by Ubisoft and Published by them, originally, as stated in 2010, this game came back to life in 2021 when it was re-released for the PS4 along with most other home systems.

    Street Fighter 30th Anniversary

    Spanning 4 Major Titles and a total of 12 games it’s history well. Starting in ’87 with the original Street Fighter and covering its various versions this is a must-play for any Arena Fighter gamer.

    While the stories differ from game to game, the goal is the same, see the bad guy, pummle the bad guy, and repeat as necessary. There is an entire background of other things to do other than this but it’s best to experience the game and learn for yourself.

    Developed by Digital Eclipse and published by Capcom this game’s history helped to shape the modern fighting genre we know today, so why not sink into some history?

    Doom II (Classic)

    Following from our Gamepass selection we have Doom 2. While Doom is an Iconic game, alongside Quake, and Wolfenstein we thought it would be bad to select the original for PS Plus, which is why we have gone with Doom 2.

    Continuing the story from the ending of Doom, the marine ventures back to Earth and, in doing so is thrown into saving any survivors and making sure they are safely evacuated. Upon learning that he needs to close the rift to Hell he sets out heading home and descends into Hell once more.

    Developed by ID Software and published by GT Interactive, Doom II is an interesting and thrilling story which continues the Marines’ adventure.

    Atari Classics Vols. 1 & 2

    For our Fourth selection, we pick the 2 Atari game collections. While there are 3 there are only the first 2 on the service, however, you get access to 100 games with just the 2 collections.

    While we could highlight some of the more popular ones with the collections, we think that it would be far better to let you experience them and find what you enjoy the most.

    Developed and published by Atari, this literal “Blast From The Past” could either bring back memories or introduce you to new games that you never dreamed of.

    Dark Cloud

    Unlike our other selections for this month, we wanted to pull something that a lot of people might have played and enjoyed back in the early 2000s.

    Embark on a quest to save the world from a dark force, newly resurrected and ready to decimate everything. Although a pretty basic RPG Dungeon Crawler, Dark Cloud has a powerful civilisation-building engine within, which is used in conjunction with Georama Spheres located throughout the many dungeons. While not the best game from our list, it is a personal favourite and if you enjoyed Dark Cloud 2 (Dark Chronicle) this is a must-play. While Dark Cloud isn’t as good as Dark Chronicle or as spread out it tells the story behind the Dark Geni who is the Final (Some might say Secret) boss of Dark Chronicle.

    Developed by Level-5 and published by Sony Computer Entertainment, this very first game from Level-5 shows the potential that the company had even at its beginning, and now it is best known for its work on Ni No Kuni.
