10 Minis you must own: Vector TD

The PlayStation Network's Minis store is something of an unsung hero on the console. Not many give it much attention, but some of the games on the service are genuinely compelling, and for bite-sized prices, you often can't go wrong. With that in mind we will list in the coming days 10 Minis games that you might not have heard of, but probably should download.

First up: Vector TD

Tower defence games have exploded in popularity in recreant years, which makes sense, given that they can be produced relatively cheaply by small, independent teams, and platforms such as the Minis store allow those indies to publish the game fairly cheaply as well.

The Minis store has its fair share of tower defense games, but for my mind one of the best of them is Vector TD. It's nothing pretentious to look at, but it is still stylish, the music suits the visuals perfectly to create a 'Tron' atmosphere, and the gameplay itself is rock solid.

It's not an innovative game or anything, but the power balance of this various towers is pretty much spot on, allowing you plenty os strategic options, the difficulty level is high but rewarding, and there's nothing fiddley about the controls. Simply put, Vector TD is a well made game, and for less than $10 on the Minis store, you can't really go wrong.

Score: 4/5
