Under the radar games: the 29 best upcoming games you've never heard of

What about all the smaller games that are cool but aren't exactly household game brands?

PixelJunk Shooter

For: PS3

When one of the most creative development houses in gaming comes up with a new title, you'd do best to listen up. PixelJunk's latest is a frenetic take on the classic arcade-style shooter genre (hence the name) with enough quirky twists and puzzle elements to make it all their own. The main goal in Shooter is to pilot a spacecraft and rescue humans who are stuck in underground channels (how they got there is anyone's guess) from a fiery death by lava by strategically destroying rock formations, releasing refreshingly cold water into the levels to extinguish the lava. Somehow bats and other enemies made their way down into the lava-infested channels (maybe they followed the humans in?) which you'll need to destroy, all the while rescuing humans and avoiding getting torched by the lava. PixelJunk, just hurry up and give me the damn game already, I'm tired of waiting. --Andy Burt

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
