Buy a couple of these and your Vita home screen will quickly fill up with icons. Of course, the nature of the platform means there is going to be a whole lot of really bad games that no one should ever play, and just like the iOS app store discoverability is a bit of an issue.
And so we've created a little list of games (five, to be exact) that represent the best of what the PlayStation Mobile platform offers for Vita owners. Considering that combined these games cost less around $20, you can hardly fault value for money here:
There's no real goal to the game other than the leaderboard, but then it does not need more than that.
It controls tightly and has a charming art style as well. There's a surprisingly large number of levels too, making this game one that will last.
Haunt The House: Terrortown
Needless to say, this game is laugh-out-loud fun, and the best $5 I have spent on a game in a very long time.
Best of all, if you want to test for yourself whether this game still holds your attention, it's a free download with microtransactions to fund the rest of the game if you find yourself hooked. Which you will.
Frederic - Resurrection of Music
This game is proof that a music game doesn't need popular tracks to be effective. Resurrection of Music has an insane (but entertaining plot), interesting mechanics, and one of the best music game soundtracks ever. It's premium priced by PlayStation Mobile standards, but nonetheless essential.
