Annihilate enemies and become a ninja with April's PlayStation Plus games

PlayStation Plus has been on a roll in recent months, with March giving subscribers freebies like Disc Jam and Severed. April’s games aren’t quite as high-profile, but they do include the long-awaited return from one of the industry’s most prolific designers and two PlayStation Vita games that also come bundled with PlayStation 4 support.

Beginning next Tuesday, PlayStation 4 owners will be able to play the first game from The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency — a studio founded by God of War and Twisted Metal director David Jaffe. Drawn to Death offers a unique spin on multiplayer shooters, with each battle taking place inside a student’s notebook, and the “time to kill” is intentionally long to separate it from games like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare or Gears of War 4.

Also free for PlayStation 4 owners is Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, a cartoony, cooperative adventure-puzzle game that, because of its single-screen nature, Sony recommends playing over the PlayStation 4’s “Shareplay” online feature. Each player can control their character as if they were in the same room together.

PlayStation 3 players will receive Invizimals: The Lost Kingdom for free in April. The series has drawn comparisons to the Pokémon franchise over the years, and The Lost Kingdom isn’t one of the better games — it holds just a 50 average score on Metacritic, with only a single positive review. The PlayStation 3 will also get Alien Rage — Extended Edition, which has received a similarly awful critical reception. The arcade shooter features a similar aesthetic to the recent Doom, though it’s probably a better idea to replay that instead.

On Vita, subscribers get two games that are cross-buy on PlayStation 4. 10 Second Ninja, as the name suggests, is a fast-paced action game that tasks players with destroying a group of enemies within the titular time limit, while also avoiding environmental hazards. Curses ‘n Chaos, meanwhile, is an action game that is something of a Castlevania or Ghosts ‘n Goblins “devolution,” with retro pixel-art and intense boss fights.
