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?

Half-Minute Hero

For: PSP

I've decided that Half-Minute Hero is going to be an RPG for people with ADD. Giving players only 30 seconds to complete each mission, the game does away with many typical RPG mainstays, such as spending hours leveling up, and completely throws the long-winded story custom right out the window. The game itself has a decidedly old-school look to it, and the characters and enemies are basically a parody of RPG sprites; you can literally count the pixels on each character. With four different modes which range from typical (but extremely short) random battle fare to a full on shoot-em-up mode, Half-Minute Hero may be a schizophrenic RPG that anyone can jump in and play for... half of a minute. --Andy Burt (Follow me on Twitter here!)

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.

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.
